The intention was to get the British Motor Heritage brands into the same business scope as the BMW Mobile Tradition, so you could walk into any Rover dealership and order parts for your old car.  That went out the window as the private specialist sellers like Moss dominated the marketplace as historically Standard Triumph, BMC, Jaguar Rover Wolesley Austin Morris etc walked away from any commitment to supply parts beyond what is called an all life period.  ie up to 10 years after the last car of that type left the factory.    The factory sold off or scrapped as much of what is termed obsolete stock and fed those specialist spares sellers.  The TR Register Spares, run by Messrs Cox & Buckles was such an industry leader that helped keep our cars on the road when British Leyland couldn't care less.   I know I thrived in that era, buying new LHD TR2-3 steering boxes for £8.00 each, and yes I still have one.
