Hello all,

[this query may have already been discussed]

have purchased an e type 1969 Series 2, 2+2 from the U.S. and about to be registered.

how do I go about establishing number of previous owners?

many thanks

If you’re talking about registration in the UK, then I don’t think you need to. My car is a US import, and the V5 shows one previous keeper. That’s who I bought it from, who was the person who first registered it here. I’ve no idea how many owners it’s had whilst it was in the USA. It might say something like “not new at first registration” on the V5.

I think what is meant by this is the previous owners in the US. If you have the US title/ reg doc, it should have the last owner on it (note, make a copy of it - you may have to hand this in on registration in UK). You could write to them and request history, i have done this in the past with some success. Or you could approach the state DMV where it is registered, but you may not have much luck, depending on which state.
