Just got a screenshot off the DVLA site showing the SORN declaration. Presumably that means that someone somewhere is keeping UEY 245L off road.

Any way you can add UEY 245L after the JWO 32L of this thread just in case it helps someone to spot it?

Many thanks again.

It might be worth writing to Practical Classics magazine - they quite often publish short letters from people searching for their old cars.
You might just get a result of some sort, particularly knowing that the editor, Danny Hopkins has an Interceptor himself :D
PistonHeads website also has a topic of finding cars, probably worth writing a post.

Also could the JOC club Facebook write a piece, asking people to share??

Martin - Many thanks for the idea. I will give it a go.

Eddie - Ditto.

Another nugget of info came about via Twitter over the weekend that the MOT last expired 17 Sept 2011 which would be logical with car (now registered UEY 245L) having been registered SORN in 2012.

Thanks all

Jon

An update:

I have got an AA vehicle check report and it shows the current owner (whoever that might be) became owner number 11 on 19 October 2003 and at the last MOT she had 48k miles on the clock.

Also, have heard back from Gavin Barnett who contacted Richard Calver for advice about buying her, back in 2003.

Sadly but totally understandably, Gavin cannot remember much about the seller’s details other than he was a barbour and he spoke to him on the phone between his hair cuts and his wife showed him the car. He took the UEY 245 photo above which is a great piece in the jigsaw for me. A huge thanks to Gavin. He ended up buying an E-Type.

I have also been on Robey’s web site and ordered a copy of original purchase docs that hopefully will confirm my dad’s details and 138/8451 being bought from ADR Garages, Cwmbran.

The search continues.
