The Certificate gives all the relevant information on your car taken from the original records. It will confirm the original numbers and colour scheme, give the dates of build and despatch, as well as the original destination of the car. Where recorded, the name of the first owner and the original registration mark are also included on the Certificate. We offer this service for all cars which are more than ten years old.
The service is available for:
- Swallow bodied cars (Austin Seven, Wolseley Hornet and Standard) 1931 – 1933
- SS Cars 1931 – 1936
- SS Jaguar cars 1935 – 1940
- Jaguar cars from 1945 onwards
- Daimler cars from circa 1959 onwards (there is also limited information available for some earlier Daimler cars, from circa 1953 onwards)
We carry out the research from a chassis number and/or other number(s), or other information which has been quoted to us by a client. We cannot accept liability in cases where incorrect numbers have been quoted by clients, even if this leads to the wrong car being researched.
That is why we ask you to supply all the original numbers from the car, including engine number, body number and gearbox number. You should also quote the UK registration mark (where applicable) and date of first registration.
You are requested to send a scan or photograph of the second page only of the UK registration certificate V5C (or an equivalent non-UK document or certificate) with your application. If you do not send suitable documentation, we may not be able to issue a certificate with all the information about the car. Please note that we always reserve the right to refuse to issue a certificate. A refund will be made if we cannot issue a certificate.
