From the chassis no, which no or letter determines month and yr of manufacture? This is to find out if my 99 has tax exempt status ie before 1st Jan 1973. Is there a site I should look at?

Indeed there is:

Basically, if it starts 9972 you're in. 9973 is, however, less good news.

Could still be exempt. 73 model year starts in September '72.

Wasn't so lucky with my '96 It was manufactured January '73.. :(

Mind you, that had half price tax anyway.. (under 1500cc)
