Sir Geoff Hurst’s Lexus ES F Sport has the unique number plate WC66 SGH and the 1966 World Cup winner is considering selling the plate and car separately
England football legend Sir Geoff Hurst is selling his car – complete with a personalised 1966 World Cup numberplate.
The star – who remains the only man to ever score a hat-trick in a World Cup final – has put the vehicle on sale for £41,950.
The Lexus ES F Sport has the unique number plate WC66 SGH.
Interest was so frenzied that Sir Geoff said he was now considering selling the plate and car separately.
On his Facebook page he said: “A few people have contacted me asking for the personalised plate so if the car (with the plate) does not sell we may separate the two.
“Will keep you posted.”

The sale price is high for a Lexus.
Other second-hand versions of the hybrid saloon are on sale for between £29,950 and £39,890 via Auto Trader.
Obviously being owned by Hurst will have increased the price.
Earlier this year the former West Ham player placed a classified advert in a newspaper to sell two other World Cup-themed number plates: GH66 CUP and WC66 ENG.
