Thompson. The mileage in January 1996 was 68,645 as recorded on the MoT Certificate so it would appear that between 1999 and 2009 a total of only 5,123 miles were covered, with the MoT history showing a mileage reading of 73,858 in October 2009.</div><div><br /></div><div>ALX then became the property of its 4th owner, Mr S.
