Date of manufacture of a 245, and advice on how to register for road please

Post by simon_f3 »

Hi there, I just took delivery of a fairly clean Leyland 245, which I believe is from the late 70s. It was never road registered, having had a gentle life (as far as I can tell) as a groundskeeper's tractor at a private school for many years. Would anyone be able to help me determine the year of manufacture please? Serial number 245QM/309232/-250901. I believe it has the quiet cab, and 5 speed + reverse gearbox with high/low ratios.

Also, could anyone point me towards a guide (or just give any tips...) on how I would go about getting an age-related plate and V5 for it please? It's not essential that it can be driven on the road, but it would be handy to be able to join some of the meetings locally.

Many thanks for reading, Simon

How did you get on? I also have a 245 and would like to register for the road. I downloaded the forms from DVLA but like you, I am missing some of the vital information.

Hi Newbie_wilts,
Dave Morgan is your man - for a very reasonable fee he will sort all the paperwork for you and send it off to the DVLA.
If you're an owners' club member you'll find his contact details inside the front cover of the magazine (sorry to be a bit cagey but I don't want to give out anybody's details on a public forum without their permission!).
He was extremely helpful and guided me through the process - now I just need to wait until DVLA send me a registration.
Hope that's a help,
Simon
