Motors rear window stickers|
Beadle is a founder member of the V8 Register who was parts manager at University
Motors in Epsom in the 1970s and then at the Sprite & Midget Centre in Richmond
upon Thames and later with Moss Europe at Hampton in Middlesex. His recollection
of part numbers is quite extraordinary.

sample UM rear window stickers for the former BL dealership in the characteristic
sticker on the rear screen of the Mini as shown on a posting on Flicker.
Beadle has a photo of two sample rear window stickers
for the former BL dealership in the characteristic blue colour. He says "they
are not the same as the sticker he has seen from David Wellings. I didn't even
realise that they are not even the same as each other, or even the one which is
on the rear screen of the Mini as shown on a posting on Flicker.
I think they must have been locally sourced by each branch of Uiversity Motors.|
one with the BRITISH LEYLAND LOGO would be the one to reproduce, as it could be
correct for all branches of UM and also be correct for UM MGCGTs as LEYLAND CARS
didn't arrive on the scene until after all the MGCs were sold".
has a poscript too saying "they are even printed with different backing blues!
The one to print should be printed on clear plastic then have adhesive added to
the front face, then covered with a protective paper which can then be removed
before placing inside the rear screen".

Beadle would welcome information from anyone who knows of other UM stickers, particularly
those used before September 1968. More
