Tracing my bus family tree reg E978 SVM

Postby Troopy » 10 Sep 2018, 21:34

Thought it may be fun to try and trace Troopy's history on here and see if any members had owned him previously, or known anyone who did

White (possibly blue in original colour) 1987 1.6 TD, hightop which was added post production, reg number E978 SVM.

Anyone with any info please let me know :D

Can add my van to the family tree. Born in 1982 to a very prolific production line. He is the older brother Troopy never got to know. Is there any possibility of inheritance from Papa Volkswagen?

I'd put your reg in the title, more chance of someone reading it.

VM indicates the vehicle was first registered in Manchester

A good start would be to enter your details on this site if you can find your m-plate.
