Default ALX 562B - Do you own this car?

Hi everyone,

I wonder if anyone knows of this 1964 Amazon? It belonged to my great Grandfather who bought it from new. If someone can help me make contact with the owner it would be great. I'd love to know how the car is doing.

Here is a link to the photo that was too big to upload

I don't know anything about the car, I'm afraid, 'gurk', but it does come up on 'cazana' as having been MOT tested last in June 2015 at 79,003 miles, so I would say that the chances are good that someone may be able to help.

Good look with the search.

Regards, John.

well it is still taxed and has an MOT so on the road which is good news .. You can find out the details from DVLC at Swansea for a small charge .

Unfortunately not so Clan.
DVLA never did 'routinely' give individuals details of current registered owners - only to authorities and parking companies! who would be chasing owners with fines. Another 'exception' was if you claimed a vehicle had damaged yours, but such applications must be legitimate.

You may be confusing a service they offered to the current registered keeper (for a 5 charge) whereby they would give you full details of previous keepers. This service has now been discontinued.

There was a brief (very brief) period when they showed details of the MOT testing station on an online MOT history check on the vehicle. During that period, you would of course know roughly where the vehicle was. This was quickly substituted with 'Details temporarily unavailable'.
As I understand it, this information is again available, but only if you have a reference number off the V5 - so that information is available only to registered owner.

Here is a photo uploaded to photo hosting website "Flickr" in 2011.

Might be worth contacting the owner of that album.
