[show]The Vauxhall Victor 2000 driven by Jeff Randall was registered RXD 996F, while the Vauxhall Ventora seen chiefly in Department S was registered RXD 997F. Both cars came from Vauxhall Motors Ltd's publicity fleet and the Ventora actually appears in one or two episodes of R&H as well. More than one car was used as Jeff Randall's Victor during the filming of R&H - you can spot the differences by the colour of the interior - some scenes depict a black cabin, others a burgundy one. Fans wanting to track down the Victor may be saddened to note that it was last seen in a scrapyard in 1976.
