That only tells you the model year, 1988 for that one, which is Aug 87-July 88. the chassis no can narrow it down to which month using ETKA. The M plate is more accurate.

I know, but so far the PO hasn't actually coughed up his VIN, only a number from the V5 which is incomplete.

M plates mean nothing to DVLA either

OK, that makes things easier :)

I reckon it's a November 1979 van, probably made around 10th November.

DVLA don't care about the actual date, only the month.

I have dug out my Glass's books, and though they go to 1983 they don't cover commercial vehicles so I cannot help as directly as I hoped.

So alternatives are:
VW dating certificate
Letter from VW club RECOGNISED by DVLA
Letter from another organisation which is "approved" - there are commercial services doing what I did for free

I'll start keeping a lookout for the one that will give the answers for our T25's

Where would I find a vw club that would be recognised by the DVLA. Or any clubs that could give me proof. Is it worth contacting the DVLA anyway.

Beware, I think DVLA has now started looking at registration date, not manufacturing date from one post I read. Not necessarily in compliance with the legislation so you can find out for us.

How did you come to the conclusion that it is a November 10th 1979 van.
