In Search of my Old BRM

    HI Guys,

    My name is Andy and going back a few years ago I owned a BRM. I then sold it (it was stripped out so more or less a shell with running gear) to a guy on the mg-rover forum. He then sold the car to someone else to maybe use as a track car.

    The registration was M17TDN (was a private reg, which I couldn't remove from the car as it had been SORN for a few years). Original reg was V459 GHL.

    I'm just wondering whether anyone has any info or knows anything about the car. I think it would have been sold about a year ago. Checked DVLA and it does not appear to be registered.

    Many thanks in advance

    Hi Andy, Welcome to the forum :hi:

    Typically not being able to retrieve the details from the DVLA website means one if two things. Either the cars been scrapped or it's now on a private plate.

    You can use to check the history of a car and it's current status including whether or not it's written off or scrapped. Unfortunately all these types of sites only work with the last known registration plate attached to the car.
    Entering the reg you provided into the above site returns no results which kind of suggests it's now on a different reg plate. :hmmm:

    cheers for the replies guys

    yea I know its off road, I had declared it SORN for a few years, and guessed that was still the case. It was sold where it would need a lot of work. Thanks for finding that though mate.

    Which rally one? I've seen a few on here doing a search but none seem to have that VRM.

    As said, any info is very much appreciated

    Hi, a fair while since I posted this; just wondering if anyone knows anything of the car?

    I think it's bad news Andy. Not seen an MOT since the last one expired in 2007 according to the dvla site and not declared SORN either.

    Ah, thought as much. Kind of in hope that someone has is somewhere but probably scrapped now. Well if anyone uncovers anything I'd really appreciate anything on it. Thanks for the replies.
