    Hi Ross,
    I think sold new in Austria and delivered 21/09/1990 to Vladimer Oblak, then in 1996 to Bruno de Cilli, then in 1998 to Werner Grobl and presumably to yourself in 2011. Can you confirm engine & assembly numbers on this car please?
    AT.

    how do you guys find this info out??
    thanks very much.

    i do not know the engine and assembly numbers but the car has never been disassembled or in an accident, so i presume they are the same they have always been.
    the car is sitting over at driver source awaiting license plates, but once i get them, then i will check it out.

    Really sorry to disagree re assembly number tag.
    Plate is silvergrey and it is five digits with the leading zero.
    See sample photo of another F40 here (#84307).

    Silly me, I should have done what you did, post an illustrative example. I was too hasty only remembering the numbers are on a black backround and forgetting later cars were up to 5 digits, as per what we see here from F40 #93536. I hang my head in shame!
