DVLA list it as 1972 build year and date of first registration as 25 sept 1972, which ties up pretty well.

Just looked a bit further (it's a while since I sold it) and 453936 was registered 12th September 1972 - certainly a 1972 build.

Sorry for the delay in responding to the various listings.

In order:

45/3072 is not on the Register

ROE425M is on the Register, but I don't have a photo

RVG464J is on the Register, but it's a brief and recent entry

45/3730 is not on the Register

45/2009 is on the Register, but I don't have a photo

45/1571 is not on the Register

VUL455M is on the Register with basic details but no photo

If theres any chance of registration and/or photos for the non-Register cars that would be helpful.

Both YOH and XRC are on the Register. I could do with a photo of XRC if possible.
