Hello from another UK member. I remember this car being advertised. Firstly, was the car a personal import to the UK or, like mine was, bought in by a dealer to sell as new in the UK?
So, mine was sold new by Atlantic Sports Cars who were based at the time in Luton. The car was sent from the factory to a dealer in Florida then exported from there. It was never owned or used on U.S roads. Other dealers in the UK who could've done similar are Bill Shepherd Mustang and possibly David Boatwright. Do you not have any form of paperwork with the car to give you a clue?
If it was a personal import then the car may have had use in the U.S. What I did with my previous Mustang that came to the UK in a similar fashion was to write to DVLA and request its history. At the time this was only £5. That gave me all the owners in the UK as well as the U.S title and export documents. The copies aren't great as they come off microfilm.
If you're not already a member of the Mustang Owners Club of Great Britain (there's a forum and Facebook group) or Simply Mustangs UK (Facebook only) then it would be great to see you and the car on there.
