My Camper is a French Registered 1981 Pilote conversion, I am currently trying to apply for the French equivalent of vintage car status, I have just had my request sent back because there is an inconsistency between the Carte Grise (French V5 registration Document) the docs give a number of GBVCAC56680 but the chassis plate has the following info,
I don't seem to be able to translate either using standard VIN information (unless I am misunderstanding the format) so I am wondering if this is a proprietary plate from the Camper Van Supplier in which case maybe it isn't an error.
I have written to Pilote to see if they have records going back that far, but as yet haven't heard anything.
Thats not a Ford VIN plate, it should be in the door step, there is also one on the bonnet slam panel above the headlamp.
Thanks for that, there isn't one under the bonnet, but I have found the one on the door step, I cannot believe that I didn't spot it before. I checked the drivers side, but not the passengers side, I must be getting senile in my old age.
Fancy a chinwag? This live chat box is just for you!
