Rover P6B history trace??

#1
Hi All,
I am trying to find information regarding a vehicle that was apparently a Singapore consulate car in the 1970s. I am hoping that someone may have a record on file that it was such a car.
The car in question is a 1970 Rover P6, vin number 7A8FC080707524198, chassis number 42600952F, engine number 42515567C.
I can only find out that it was originally exported from the UK in 1970, and the last owner stated that it was such a car, but has no evidence of this.
The car returned to the UK around 2000, and had a renovation, and then arrived in New Zealand in 2007.
Any help or information?

Kindest regards,
Richard Hollingworth.
New Zealand.

Hi, If I can answer for Peter? He was saying go to his website thus -

Homepage

Although I'm not sure how much more he will be able to tell you other than the 426 chassis number is '68 - '70 RHD export and the 425 engine number is V8 high compression. The modern 17 digit VIN has, I suspect, been applied by your government.

Under GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) here in the UK/EU he will be constrained from telling you anything that will identify an individual.

You could ask to where the vehicle was dispatched at the British Motor museum , using the chassis number ( 42600952F) as a reference. They hold the original dispatch records
