Historic Car Transfers from Sutherlands Spreads

Presumably Quaker Oats asked for car transfers that would not appear in Letraset's retail packs; this might explain why the transfers from the strip of ten, taken from the right-hand edge of the uncut sheet PR82, don't feature in the Letraset packets.
