Tracing my cars history

I'm new to this forum but have owned various RR's & B's over the last 45yrs. I currently own a 1964 Cloud3 which I think was sold new into the USA and then imported to New Zealand in 1971; I've got it's history from then, but nothing before.
Has anyone any advice on how I can trace its history from the factory onwards? Thanks, Chris.

IIRC all the old factory records are now owned by one of the UK RR/B car clubs. For a small fee they should be able to tell you the name and country of the original owner. For a bit (lot?) more they will also have all the build sheets specifying all the options that were ordered at the time. After that you will have to contact the relevent motor vehicle department of the country/state for details of subsequent owners.
