How can I track down my father's old Alfa Romeo GTV?

I am trying to source my father's 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV. I've been on the DVLA web site and found the car by its plate, however the car has not had an MoT/Tax since April 1983. Is there any way of finding out who owns the car, if it's scrapped or SORN? I know this could be tricky with data protection but any help would be great.

One option worth trying is the Alfa Romeo Owners' Club ( If they know the car, they may be able to pass on your details. Failing that, social media is a good way of highlighting your story - if you encourage people to share the post and include a photo of your father with the car, you might find someone who knows someone who knows the owner. But it is a long shot.
