This car was picture in September 1993 at the XR Owners Club national day at the Snibston Discovery Park near Coalville in Leicestershire. A465 was parked in the "unusual XR" section with a Cortina XR6 and Sierra XR8, both South African models. The yellow poster in the windscreen mentioned the fact that only 23 Flys were made, which we now know to be incorrect. It is reported that Crayford themselves may not have kept complete listings.
