Question VIN numbers checked by ford?

Well, I checked out the build plates on my car, see what was what.

Turns out it was made and assembled in England (BB code, not CK code like Australian assembled cars).
It's a 1300 GT (Or was), which is strange because Capri's never came with 1300s in Australia, only 1600 Kent, 2 litre V4 (Piece of crap) and 3 litre V6.

Wierd thing is, it was made *very* early in Capri production. So, I doubt someone imported it privately into Australia. I figure this because:
A) The car was availible in Australia 3 months after the time of manufacture. Given that it takes about 6 to get a car from England via ship... why would you bother?
B) The car is a 1300! Why would you go to the trouble of getting a car imported with a lower spec than locally availible cars?
c) So given that there's little logical reason in privately importing it, that leaves sentimental attachment. Which makes little sense, a 1300 GT? What a joke.

So yeah, I don't think it was privately imported. I wanna know what's up with the cooky numbers. Can I get them checked by Ford? Do they keep all of these type of things on record? And how much will they inevitabley charge me to have someone type something into a computer?

Cheers

The plates in question...
