DAX 777K

Post by Noddy » Sun Mar 10, 2019 2:56 pm

Been trying desperately to find some history on this car which I have now owned since September last year - it’s quite a distinctive number so hoping someone will remember it?
The speedo reads 13500 miles and it certainly drives and looks as if the mileage could be correct though, being realistic, I rather doubt it!! There is no mot record prior to 2009 and then a gap until 2015. I contacted the previous owner who had pex’d it due to health problems. He was a retired mechanic in Lymington but had purchased it in from Stroud MG in 2015. Stroud MG in turn confirm they did an engine out respray in 2015 but apparently the customer died forcing them to sell the car to retrieve the costs owed to them. There is no record of the car prior to 2009. Any advice/help/info wo7od be much appreciated.

Hi. Send a photo and your comments to the MGB Registrar Andrew Vigor at registrar@mgb-register.org.
Hopefully the car may be on our register with the 20,000 other MGB’s
Regards
John

The DVLA will not give out names of previous owners but i recently got a list of change of ownership the date and town not the names from the DVLA for a fee of £5. So it may narrow down your search area a bit. You can download the form from the DVLA website.
