This is a bit of a long-shot but am wondering if there's any way that I will be able to work out where my oval was sold from originally in 1953?
According to its Birth Certifcate my car left the factory on 24/9/53 for delivery to VW Motors London, but the registration was issued by Surrey County Council , the plate being *PH.
The DVLA haven't been of much help, the only documentation they have dates as far back as 1974 when their computerized database was set-up 😞.
Would a potential purchaser have bought a car direct from VW in London and had it registered locally or does a Surrey plate mean it had to have been bought from a Surrey-based VW agent?
Of course the fact that it's Surrey brings Colborne Garages to mind, but I suppose I'm letting my imagination run away with me :lol: .
Can anyone offer any advice?
