Default Trying to locate my fathers old P1800S

Hi there

I am wondering if someone might be able to help me. I am trying to locate (if it still exists!) my father P1800S I was actually brought home from the hospital in a moses basket in the back when I was born Imagine doing that now lol.

This is all the information I have on it so far

WWC 275F

Make VOLVO
Model 1800 S
Colour BLUE (Pale blue)
Body type COUPE
Engine size 1780 cc
Engine number 3787
Year 06-Oct-1967
Exported on 01-Jun-2004
Substantially repaired and/or accident damaged: Identity checked on 07/09/2004

Bit confused that it says it was exported before the damage.

I really need to find the VIn/chassis number but stuggling. Thought it would come back on a HPI check but it didn't

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Martin

Ok so I think I have tracked the chassis number down - 25733

I believe Gordon Hunter is the person to speak to next? Can't PM him yet though as I don't have enough posts so hopefully he will see this.

Yup - iirc, the changes came in when the factory started up after the summer hols. I was told this when my '67 F (registered in Sept '67) was identified by someone who knows the model year differences as being built before the holidays.

Thanks for clearing that up

The question is what do do next? What concerns me is the fact it says it was exported 9 years ago. If it was its going to be very difficult to track down.

I guess it would be ideal if I found the last registered keeper. Does anyone know if this is possible?

Cheers

I completed a form you can get online from DVLA and sent a cheque for 5 and they eventually they sent me full history of owners very thorough. On form you explain reason why you want it and they decide, can't see why they wouldn't especially considering family history.

I have that form actually, v888 I think it is. Sounded like you could only request info if it was to do with an accident, parking ticket etc. but I'll certainly give it a go. Thanks.
