Just get an MOt, write to the VW Museum to obtain an age certificate, which will serve to authenticate the year of your car with its chassis number.

When you send your V55 form to register your car, include the MOT, a certificate of insurance, the £38 registration fee and your VW museum certificate. You'll probably be asked to come and show your car for an inspection at your local DVLA office. You should then get an age related number from them (should be 'B' reg for 1964). 🙂

No probs! :d

I just emailed them and gave my details. This was mainly because I was enquiring about engine numbers and it seemed easier!

It arrived really quickly considering it was around christmas! 😎

In the interest of data protection they cannot give you out on the certificate the original engine number. However, if you tell them a number that you believe to be the original they can confirm it!

Good luck!

That's really interesting, on my reg document the engine number given is not that of the engine that came with the car when I bought it (which in any case was a nasty late Mexican unit), it seems to have been from about the right period so I put it down as the number on my application. Hopefully therefore I they will be able to confirm if it is the number for the original engine. Frustratingly it seems that my original engine is being squirreled away by a previous owner and he wont let me buy it back. 😞

I've also just sent my £5 off to DVLA to get the ownership history of the car in the UK since 1957, it'll be interesting to see what comes back!

How did you go about contacting the DVLA? I would like to do this, write letters to the people with stamped addressed envelopes and hope for replies!:d 😎

My 63 is similar engine wise. It is currently in another 63 according to the previous owner but I havent given up hope of getting it back some day! :wink:

You have to print it off and then fill it in giving a reason for wanting the information about the previous owners. Then send it off in an envelope with a cheque for £5 and hope for the best!

Great idea :idea: Thanks for the info! I want to do this for my 79 (as its the only british car we own :lol:)

Nic BC, exactly how much is £10 :?: is that some rare unique 'hi-top' currency? :lol:

Needhelp, it is really easy and straightforward even starting without any documents at all, once you have an MOT and birth certificate. The Dvla will almost certainly ask to inspect your car these days but its nothing to be worried about.

You'll see £ on here when you look at messages posted prior to the forum software getting upgraded a while back. It's what the forum database recorded behind the scenes for a £ (pound) sign.

To answer the question; £10 means a tenner (£10) in new money. :d

You can also type and hold down Alt followed by 0163 i.e. [Alt]0163 on the numberic keypad to get £

[Function][Numlock] Alt 0163 on my laptop(at least on my keyboards)

Alt 0128 is € Euro.

[Funtion][Numlock] first sets numlock to on and then would reset it to off later when you don't want the special characters any longer.
