How to find the Original registration of a JDM car.


Recommended Posts

A question popped up on one of the Celica FB pages asking if there is any way of finding the original registration of a JDM car before it was imported to the UK.

This would be cool to find out as it could be a way of getting some show plates made up and be as original as possible rather than just having some random Japanese plates.

Also it would be nice to find out the history of the car too as I am not the first UK owner so don't have any import papers.

 

Does anyone know if this can be done and if so how to go about getting info.

I know this won’t help you, but found mine on the export certificate

MIE 300 RO 3338

 

export certificate interesting as has the weight on it 1160kgs originally, bit lighter than the wiki has a GT.

My cousin managed to get hold of the original Jap Reg number for his Evo and had plates made up.

Il ask him how he went about it :thumbsup:

Right, you need to do a Jap vehicle check which is around £12 apparently.

You then get an email back from them with all the info including the jap reg number.

Then it’s a case of getting someone to make the plates up
