    Do you know any friendly policemen ? Or the abandoned Vechicle Officer at the local council.

    They have to be mates as I think it is very frowned up to do these kind of searches on a whim.

    I believe they are the only people who can search on Chassis Number Only.

    hi here is the best way to find the vin number,if got the registerion number there are letters at the start which are the area code were it was first registered there are a few websites with information .then the easy part, if know area were it was registered you will have to contact the council local records office and ask for a copy of first registerion which they may charge for?you will get a half A4 paper with make,model,reg number,date of reg,chassis number and final engine number.hope this helps

    Get a proper HPI check and it will give you all the details including vin number/engine number. dont use the ones advertised on telly that you can text because they dont give you all the details. PLUS THEY DONT CHECK FOR OUTSTANDING FINANCE. I can get a proper `HPI check done for 10 if that helps. i have HPId cars from just the vin number before and it gave me the reg number and any other numbers its been registered under. Private plates etc.

    I have tried DVLA they just sent back a load of stuff about clubs etc I should contact to if ever registered there!?! They said they canniot get the details for a car this age from just the VIN number alone. The HPI site does not offer to put just the VIN number in, it is asking for the REG no.. http://www.hpicheck.com/
