How can I trace a classic car?

I'm trying to trace a car. It's a Mercedes 380 SEC first registered in 1984 and had two owners in UK. It was imported to Ireland in 1990. The Ireland tax book says that the original identification was B639 CMP but when I try using a Motor check web site they can't come up with anything. How can I find the correct UK number plate?

I think the original numberplate you have is correct. Our MoT Check service ( identifies that plate as belonging to a green Mercedes 380 registered on 6 June, 1984.
