The British Motor Museum holds the World’s most extensive collection of historic British cars. The museum has over 300 classic cars on display from the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust and the Jaguar Heritage Trust.

The museum is located on the site of the former RAF Gaydon airfield in South Warwickshire, which was home to the Rover Group’s design, technology, and testing ground.

The British Motor Museum offers research services, and its archive houses the historical records of many of the major car manufacturers.

Owners of classic cars can use their Vehicle Identification Number and engine numbers to research the original production records for their vehicle if available.

A “Certified Copy of a Factory Record” or “Heritage Certificate” can include details such as the options the car was initially ordered with and the original paint color.
