Hey,

My car hasn't got any compliance plates, and for a vin its got one of those police numbers instead. Would the original VIN be stamped on the body/chassis anywhere?

thanks

Well its a EB1 then, the '25' in the Vin means pre 4/92. Post has 'SW' instead. 25 also means S-pac

Is there another letter after the 'K'? And are you sure its correct? 'K' means 1989 build....
