Had to look up TET
TET stands for Trans European Trading the company that built the Ledbury Maestros.

Yup the company is known as Trans European Trading and work out of Parkway Service Station (possibly not their only outlet?).

And the cars are known as 'Ledburys' because that is the town/city they were sold in, from a garage called Parkway Service Station in Ledbury which is an outlet for Trans European Trading and so on and so on

Bobins dug this out back in 2018 on the "I-spy Classic Cars Thread" with the chapter and verse on Ledbury and Apple 2000 Maestros.

A nice bit of history about the Ledbury Maestro cars and vans on the Maestro and Montego Owner's Club forum:
http://maestro.org.uk/forums/forum/tech ... ros?t=5179

From the Owner's Club link above:
"With thanks to an ex-Rover executive, it is now known that after production was finished at Cowley in 1994, a purpose built production facility was built in Varna on the edge of the Black Sea to house the Maestro production line. It was planned that production would start and the car would be introduced to the Bulgarian market. However the arrival of Daewoo and Skoda, and their subsequent manufacture of cheap cars for this market ultimately caused the venture to fail. Subsequently some of these Maestros were returned to the UK when production stopped at Varna in the summer of 1996. These cars would surface a few years later and become what we now know as ‘Ledbury’ and ‘Apple 2000’ Maestros."

My first experience of the MO Oxford was replacing a stripped timing gear, the camshaft gear was made of Tufnol.

Our service manager used one as a company car for quite a long time and said he enjoyed every minute, when it got sold on he moved on to a Hillman Husky.

Surprisingly for a grey van, I liked that one. You could buy a fleet of 7 for the price of that 1954 Morris Oxford Van!

I already got one! Not as low-mileage and as tidy as that one though...

Seriously lovely in red but four doors and it being an auto puts me off a bit... Not expensive for what it is and I love those seats :D
