Just another thought,

Have you checked with Steve incase there is a log of it on an early register ?

I'm sure if this is, with it certified by the club this will be suffice evidence with form V765

I have spoken to the DVLA and the number hasn't been reissued, so there is a chance I can get it if I can link the vin to it somehow, I haven't messaged Steve but will do that now.

If anyone does have a stock of old splitty photos please go through them and see if you can spot a picture of the SC from back in the day.

Cheers all, keep the suggestions coming!

Hi,

I’m from the High Wycombe area, although more recent than the van was last on the road. Have you tried these guys?....
http://www.highwycombesociety.org.uk/1960s-wycombe/

Strange how you can find the name, address, of the original owner, import date of the van . Etc. Etc. and the van still has plates on from the day it was laid up, yet the DVLA can’t give you the plate.....
If a wall looks like a door, attach new hinges to it so you can use it.

Yes sadly the green or buff log book becomes the must have document...
When I was going through the same quest I also found that the historical local issuing office records had been destroyed. I did however have a pile of documents which included a green and a buff log book which accompanied my 62 ...but this never got onto a DVLA V5..
I had no trouble in being re-issued with the same registration to remain with the van.
I also got a 1968 bill of sale and loys of copies of insurance renewal documents..
Maybe a trawl through what local insurance brokers/ companies might have provided cover and do any hard records exist?
Local archivist may know?

Thanks both, I have been in touch with the High Wycombe Society and trawled all of their photos, unfortunately they have no info on it.

I have a lead on a couple of people who knew the owner and remember the SC and they are willing to sign letters confirming, still trying to pull together a batch of info like that and will attack the DVLA again, I did speak to someone there but he said I had no hope without the paperwork, however I will keep trying!!

It's been a while but we're making progress, Dave's been at the load bed and bulk head so we can see what needs doing underneath.

Thanks G, although it was already languishing, unloved in the corner of a barn in the 80s. Keep looking though.

Amazing what you find down the front panel!

Hopefully this will be enough for the DVLA!
