Vehicle Enquiry website says it’s 1974 - and declared VHI at a guess. That might be what throwing the MoT history site out (which I assume is VOSA, not DVLA).

You’re assuming government departments both communicate and have the same information though :lol:

The date isn't mentioned on the register, however the chassis number corresponds with all other N registered cars, so no reason to believe it isn't a 1974 car.
