Miscellaneous Notes


History

There is no other place where the continuous ownership history of these cars can be documented and preserved but in this registry. Most owners are interested in the history of their cars but, since there has not been a place to record and preserve it until now, too much of that information on these 40+ year old vehicles has been lost. Most of this information has to come from the personal knowledge of individual owners, thus the registry desires to record as much as can be known about the ownership history of each car.

Please provide any history of the car as you know it (Names, Addresses, Periods of ownership - day/month/year, if possible) of as many previous owners as possible.


BMIHT Certificate

The British Motor Museum will sell you a 'birth' certificate with the production information for your car. The certificate will include the original numbers and color scheme, dates of build and despatch, and (where available) the details of factory fitted equipment.

Please check the box if you have the BMIHT Certificate for your car.

If you have the BMIHT Certificate, it would be greatly appreciated if you could provide a copy for the registry record. You can scan a copy and email it as an attachment to: rchaskell@earthlink.net or snail mail it to:
