Researching vehicle service history
« on: October 25, 2013, 07:04:56 AM »
Can anyone please advise if it's possible to trace a vehicle's history through its rego number? I've already correctly identified the rego no. from info on the website.

Cheers, Daryl

Wish it was that easy!!!! unfortunately no in most cases. finding markings on the vehicle can give clues eg Christams tree or motifs, mascots etc, I was lucky with one of my S3 FFr's in that I found a xmas tree under quite a few layers of paint, this helped with some of it's history but not all, log books always good but rare with the older vehicles.

Some of the enjoyment of owning an older Landy is research/investigating it's history

Carzee is a guru on researching AWM records to find mentions of ARN's

Good luck

cheers
