Hi John, welcome to the forum. Do you have a registration number? If so, it's possible we might know something of the car's history. OTOH we might not, as there are more Scamps out there than we know of, so no promises.

That registration mark shows on the DVLA site as a green, 1300cc Ford.

Not a good start for a Scamp Embarassed

Hi John, I know the databases that both ZED and I have looked at can be a bit ropey sometimes. Evil or Very Mad

Have you actually seen the V5 now?

As nice as it is to have the word Scamp on the V5 it is not the most important bit of the wording on the V5.

If it says Mini Special and then also has something like "kit assembled from parts - some, or all, may not be new" then that's the clincher.

Between us all in the club I think we have seen nearly every possible cock up and incorrect variation that DVLA has managed to put on V5's over the years.

I seem to remember one that stated "Land Rover" on the reg doc but it had always been a Scamp.

scamp registration

Post  johns scamp on Mon Feb 18, 2013 12:48 am

I bet the name put on the V 5 has made for some good laughs, like the "land rover"
in the fiat club we have stories about classic panda`s limited editions being registerd wrong, makes you wonder about who they employ at the DVLA, Shocked

If there's a tax disc or MoT certificate, dated later than the V5, don't throw it away!

DRJ 879L seems to be a new find.
