HERITAGE CERTIFICATE SERVICE COVID-19 UPDATE
The heritage certificate team are now back working in the Museum but with a reduced number of staff. They are working through the backlog of certificates and web enquiries, with orders received over the last 3 months given top priority. These will be printed and shipped out as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience.
If you have any further questions please contact us by emailing archive@
Do you own a cherished classic vehicle? Are you looking for a gift for a classic car enthusiast? We can provide you with a certified copy of your vehicle's entry in the original factory ledger, showing your car's specification as it left the production line. The details are taken from the authentic historical records created by many of the leading British motor manufacturers including Austin, Morris, MG, Riley, Wolseley, Aston Martin, Rover, Land Rover, Standard, Triumph, BMC and British Leyland.
Standard Heritage Certificate
£43 plus p&p
Own a 'Certified Copy of a Factory Record' for your classic car, showing your car's specification as it left the production line.
Discover details such as build and despatch dates, engine and body numbers, colour scheme, and details of factory fitted equipment. Please note that original ledgers vary so not all these details will be recorded for every model. A Heritage Certificate can be helpful when applying for tax exemption or an age-related Registration mark.
