Austin A35 on Peel Breakwater

Spotted this beautiful, pristine little Austin A35 on Peel Breakwater yesterday, I can only presume that the registration number reflects the year the car was first registered on the Isle of Man.

Any ideas of a date of registration for this lovely classic car?

The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 18mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

    Unfortunately, the “57” in the plate does not denote the year of registration. It serves as more of an identifier to the authorities as to the vehicle details. The short plate of UMN 57 tells me that it may be a vanity plate, such as MN 1, or MAN 123.
    The Isle of Man does not use age identifiers on their plates, unlike the mainland.
    Any questions, email me. =)
