How can I trace the owner of my old Volvo P1800?

Between 1986 and 1993, I owned a Volvo P1800. When selling the vehicle, I retained the original registration. I now no longer have use for the number and would like to see it restored to its proper place on the Volvo. Is there any way of finding the current owner to see if they might be interested in obtaining the original number?

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) rules will prevent the DVLA from sharing the current owner's details with you. But you may want to contact some of the classic Volvo Owners' Clubs to see if they can help you locate the vehicle. The UK has a very large classic car following, I'm sure someone will know of this vehicle within the historic Volvo community.
