No, 'fraid not. Presume scrapped.
Last noted as Unlicensed since 1993. Was red not yellow on last DVLA's entry at that time.

Hey Dibs, at least your Sa was UK spec'd but was it an Elford or simply added alloys?

I do agree with you Chud the brightness of a yellowun does make them stand out in the crowd - as do whiteuns and reduns too.

I think Dibs just blagged the alloys or if I remember right, the dealer put them on the car to jazz it up a bit to sell it.

As Ian has said they were on the car as the dealer had this series 1 left and the series 2 was already on the market, now that's the car I should have kept.

Is it still 'alive' today ? If so, who knows what the future might turn up ?
I would say that "The Yellow Peril" didn't have modern electrics (windows, ignition) of the later series but it was a fantastic machine and if I knew then how few would be remaining I'd have had second thoughts about selling it
