I think the most thorough way is to contact one of the heritage centre organisations like Gaydon.

That would be my first idea.
Lambert Coverdale.

As slow as possible, as fast as necessary.

Hi,

AC - only means that it was first registered within the Warwickshire DVLA area, most of the CT vehicles are the same as they were factory registered at Solihull. Though any dealership within the same area will have the same suffix.

Cheers
