Peter Beadle , parts manager with University Motors in Epsom in the mid 1970s, posted on the V8 Bulletin Board that he had found a link to a BL Directory of Approved Distributors & Dealers (AKD8593) - an interesting document for those wanting to know who were the British Leyland dealers (including MG) back in 1973. The copy is Issue 3, November 1973 with 32 pages including front & back cover.

Interestingly University Motors, Epsom does not seem to appear in the Surrey listings. There were at least three distributors/dealers in Epsom in 1973:
University Motors 4 Church Street Epsom 26611
Page Motors 24-28 East Street Epsom 26422
H.F. Edwards & Co 28-38 Upper High Street Epsom 25611
