The Tunisian log book has '58 CMD' as a registration number.... does this mean anything to anyone?

This is a manual LHD car with factory A/C. The car was sent to British Leyland, Switzerland and then sold to a customer in Tunisia. I was told he was a diplomat who had it delivered over there, I have the Tunisian blue/grey log book with it's date of arrival and the last registered date (which was 1986).
I'm not sure when it ended up in with a Belgian dealer, but it was bought from the dealer and arrived back in the UK in early 1999 and sat in storage until now.
There was some work carried out when it first arrived as it has had new floor pans, sills and door skins, but for the most part it's all original.
The heritage certificate doesn't say where in Switzerland it was delivered, just British Leyland...was there more than one supplier?
Would love to know more history on the car.

Love to find out more information on the car that would be great, you can email me on the above address.

There is a possibility that the Swiss dealer in Geneva was called Claparade, but I'll have to check.

The Tunisian log book has the name
Collet Phillppe Vieira

...and I think was last registered in Tunisia on 28.08.86 before being shipped to a village near Gant, Belgium.

Well, I did some digging and found out that there is a record of the car in Switzerland in 1971, thankfully the Swiss have it on microfilm, it just cost 100CHF to get a record of it. So I'm getting a little closer to finding out some of it's early history.

By using the Swiss records I've traced some of the cars early history, i was first registered by Edwin Roberts, who lived at Quai de Mt. Blanc 11, 1200-Geneva.

A Google search reveals the address to be the Hotel de la Paix. Which I'm guessing means he had an apartment in the hotel for a few years.

The car is now back in the UK but due to the lack of work done to the car, it's going to go into storage for a while...but don't worry I'll dig it out next year and kick start the project again.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
