Ford Transit LS10YMO ''cancelled fleet order''

Here's a funny thing. I found online a picture of the new Ford Transit van model by Oxford Diecast. The van was plain white but it carried reg LS10YMO, which sounded familiar. So I googled the reg and found a page on the Hartwell website, complete with pictures of LS10YMO in white/blue livery and for sale. The details say it was a cancelled fleet order. The van was a high-roof LWB Mk7 Ford Transit. It might not be there for long but the webpage can be viewed at http://www.hartwell.co.uk/vans/used/?lnk=922&make=ford&perpage=4®no=LS10YMO.

LS10YMO at Hartwell Ford

The van has an advertised mileage of 30965 which means somebody has been using it. Strange that Oxford chose this particular vehicle to model (and without the skirt!)

Cancelled orders and Fords from Hartwell

Two questions arise from this. Firstly, I wonder if this has happened before, or if it was a rare event. Assuming that fleetnumbers are assigned when vehicles are ordered, then it could account for some of the many gaps in the sequence. We will never know for sure but, for example, LS10YMO could have been intended as 6959F. Secondly, is Hartwell at Dunstable the main dealer supplying Ford Transits for the central fleet? They certainly had other vans registered in familiar series. Perhaps somebody travelling up the A5 in the future could take a peep?
