DVLA instructed me to fill out a V888 information request form, but this form also required the registration number, as well as a UK utility bill to prove UK residency. I responded that the vehicle's registration number is unknown, and that I am not a UK resident.
I only needed information as to why the Vehicle was issued a new VIN to get it past Canadian Customs.
They responded that, although I have reasonable cause to access this information, they do not release information outside the UK.
Why would I go through all this trouble? The thing was selling repeatedly for $500. Where else can I get a 1985 Ninety for $500?
Anyways I let the 1985 ninety go, sold my 1987 ninety, and purchased a 1993 Defender 110 a couple days ago. Should expect it near the end of the month.
If the 1985 comes up again it may be importable as "parts only".
