vehicle histories

I am trying to find out how one goes about finding a vehicle's history.

I recently purchased an armoured 560 SEL in Baghdad and would like to determine whom the previous owners were.

All I could get from DaimlerChrysler was that the car was manufactured in August 1988 and that is was not a US-spec vehicle. (I already knew that!)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: vehicle histories

Previous owners are quite often impossible to determine as you run into privacy laws etc. but an armoured 560 from baghdad would be of special interest right now!

I understand your interest in finding out as much as you can ...

Maybe if you can start at a high level and trace the countries that your car has been registered in, then approach the embassies they may be able to advise and assist.

560SEL WOW! but an armoured one TRUELY AWESOME!

Congratulations - let us know how you get on.
