Chassis 53 - New Owner in UK

Postby Madrat » 22 Oct 2013, 14:31

Hello All,
I've just purchased a rather sad looking TP21 in the UK, it is the heavily modified chassis 53 that was on ebay. Now safely home and tucked up for the winter! I plan to put it back to a more original look and replace the V8 with a modern diesel, its had some very bad modifications that need undone!

I have a few questions:

1) Does anyone have the build-sheets for the TP21's? I need to register mine in the UK and require proof of build date.
2) Is the chassis number actually stamped into the chassis? And if so, where can I find it!?

Best wishes to everyone,
Duncan

Hi welcome in.

The chassis number is on a plate just in front of the steering box.

I got my proof of age through the "volvo owners club" they are on the dvla list of approved verifiers and very helpful

Thanks for the welcome and also for the PM Glynn, actually got a very quick response from Volvo themselves but unfortunately they have no data on chassis numbers 1- 221. They could however be of help to someone with a later number.

More updates in due course, fingers crossed she'll get some attention in the new year!

Cheers,
Duncan
