An interesting and chequered past for this 90. When we first view a vehicle we do what is called an HPi Check on them, to make sure they don’t have credit outstanding or are reported stolen etc. This vehicle came up with being stolen and recovered by the insurance company. The brother’s that we’re selling it, stated they had owned it for around 5 years and said they had bought it from someone else locally. They had bought it with the intent on doing it up but in the end had only used it for towing their motor bikes around and going fishing in. We investigated it with the insurance company but it turned out they only keep details for 7 years and then the file gets deleted, the issue would have been resolved many years before so the vehicle was now classed as clean again.
