Hello,
I need to check the chassis number of a van to find its true age.
Does anyone know of a list of chassis numbers for Austin A35 vans,late 1950`s.

Regards
Mark

Sounds like a question for the A30/A35 OC, or possibly BMIHT at Gaydon.

The chassis number is HV6LCS119030.
If it is an early van,but the doors have been changed for later ones.
Would this affect the sale price much.?

Thanks for the reply,
the chassis number i was given was as I stated,but they could have got it wrong.
I was told the van was registered in May 1959.
What should it be for that year.?
