    Help needed, No log book DVLA will not issue one

    Help needed, No log book DVLA will not issue one 20th Jun 07 at 1:06 PM
    Hi, I have a 1972 Ford Escort which I am in the process of restoring.
    When I bought the car after being sat in a garage over 10 years the original log book was not available.
    The car is wearing its original number plates and an old tax disk but the vin tags are not present due to a repair carried out many years ago.
    The chassis number is under a welded plate on the inner wing (common escort rot spot)so not accesible and may not even be there anymore.
    I have applied to the DVLA with my fee for a replacement log book but the application has been returned as I cannot tell them the chassis number of the car, I called their helpline explaining my problem and they were no help whatsoever.
    Does anybody know how I can find out the chassis number of my vehicle?
