Sparshatts were a big outfit in the Southampton area. Lex Mead was the other big Triumph and Rover outfit.

One of my Toledos came from Holloway Barker. I believe it came about, when a Rover (Holloway) and Triumph (PW Barker)dealership combined.

I think it would be worth you speaking to a good friend of mine in Malvern, who was in charge of the Triumph dealership network at the time. Send me a message on triumphtoledo@hotmail.com if you want his details.

I have featured several rear windows stickers in my articles about Standard Triumph car dealers and my latest article features several stickers that are non dealer specific.
