LEYLAND P76 SUPER – Aussie Flat non-embossed


SKU: DS-148 Categories: , ,


The LEYLAND P76 SUPER is a large car that was produced by Leyland Australia, the Australian subsidiary of British Leyland. Wikipedia tells us that it featured what was described at the time as the “standard Australian wheelbase of 111 inches”. It was intended to provide the company with a genuine rival to large local models like the Ford Falcon, the Holden Kingswood, and the Chrysler Valiant. Due to a poor build quality and reliability issues sales for the P76 were well below expectations and as such is considered a failure in the history of the Australian automotive history, though this has also contributed to it becoming somewhat iconic in its home country.B This was also a decade of serious financial and operational challenges for the manufacturers back in Britain. Commercial success for this car was therefore seen as crucial to the survival of Leyland in Australia.B Launched in 1973, the P76 was nicknamed “the wedge”, on account of its shape, with a large boot, able to easily hold a 44 gallon drum. Although station wagon and “Force 7” coupC) versions were designed, these never went into mass production.

This plate has no embossed characters but has a pressed out embossed borderB and is made from high quality aluminium and the artwork applied by a dye sublimation process with a lovely gloss finish. They measure 37 x 13 cm, exactly the same as the traditional fully embossed type of plate and look just like our other Aussie made novelty number plates; even the mounting holes are in exactly the same positions, so they can easily be hung on display indoors or outdoors. For protection during delivery we use extra packing materials to ensure they arrive in tip-top condition

Important note about images we provide : Just as we sometimes see that bpricing is subject to change without noticeb, so too are bdesigns subject to change without noticeb. In 99.99% of cases, what you see on Dixiebs website or brochure is what you get. However, there are the odd times when designs have changed in some small way (eg: maybe a logo moves to a different location on the item, or the colour changes). Sometimes this information doesnbt always trickle down until the new designs are manufactured and shipped to Dixie.B We hope this is helpful and understandable.
