Can I give this a "bump" please?

Dealing with an enquiry regarding a 1966-68 LCV - need evidence via cab number to establish build date to within 3mths - if you have a 1966-68 LCV please send me chassis/cab & engine numbers.....

Thanks

After closer inspection The only thing on the tag is the Z27253 the other side of the tag is blank.

Is there any other location for numbers on the van?

My vin is MAEU496263

Any idea what year my van was made. I know it was sold in 1960 as a 1961 model.
The old owner said he thought it was made in late 1959.
Is there any way to nail down the production date?
I was told be some one in the past i could not get a Heritage Certificate on a commercial vehicle.
Any one know if this is true?

Don't know where the MAEU prefix comes from...

Should be OEH4 - N'th America Van in primer.

Does it have the BMC-61 tag on it?

Z27253 C66??? - 2nd set are stamped -- deduct CKD & GPO models - therefore, the 36k odd 948cc Civilian LCV built at Cowley. Production figures quoted in books go by chassis numbers, which are inaccurate.

For each major change, body numbers would commence at a "round" number - certainly on LCVs - suspect this mirrored other varients.

Ideally "numbers" from vehicles close to 803,948 & 1098 (and the other 2 post '62 upgrades) greatly appreciated.

Thanks
