Not information I've recorded unfortunately.
Have you tried a Freedom of Information request under the original registration and chassis (AVL) number? That helped me recently find the original owner and dealer of my Calais wagon.
Even Facebook pages like 'New South Wales Historic Patrol Vehicles'? There may be one for Victorian cars too but haven't checked.

How much did they slug you for the FOI Craig?

I know it's the initial $27.90, but what about other costs?

All I paid was the base price (pretty sure it was around $27.90) and they gave me the original registration paperwork from the dealer to VicRoads which listed the dealer, customer (company name shown on mine, they may not show individuals) and original engine number as well as all subsequent owners (whose details had been blanked out).

If it was a Victorian government car I'd imagine they'd be able to give you all that as well as it's history with the government, even possibly purchase price and disposal details.

Will do that right now mate!!
Did you do the foi search via VicRoads mate?
If the car was from another state/has been all its life will the VicRoads foi search still pose beneficial?
Thanks a lot Craig!

Chris,
do the FOI/GIPA search with the police in the state which you reckon it was in service.
Provide them with chassis number, engine number and ask for all information available on their Fleet records such as original rego number, fleet number, purchase and sale date, purchase and sale price and also importantly area of service.
Trouble is that these cars are so old that many of the records are no longer accessible or have been destroyed.

Attached is the WA FOI form you need to use
