Having a bit of a nightmare scenario here, so please bear with!

Is the quickest method of obtaining a duplicate for a car, a visit to the préfecture? By some miracle will they issue a temporary one good enough for the CT while I wait for a new hard copy to snail it's way to my door?

Also, need to get a duplicate for a beloved JD tractor that burnt out, but we can't sell the carcase without a carte grise, and guess where the carte grise was? :(( So, we don't actually have all the necessary information to fill out a replacement form.

:(

I think you will need to go to the prefecture ! They should be able to tell you what to do re the car.

Regarding the tractor, which is more straightforward, you will probably need to prove who you are (passport, EDF bill etc) then they should be able to find the details.

Check on your Préfecture website for opening hours & procedures before you set off!
At ours you now have to book an appt online before you can get past security to see anyone in person.

Not a duplicate, but a first carte grise for a ?10 year old tractor. We bought the tractor 2nd hand when we first came, and for various reasons never had a CG. I didn't go on the road.
We moved to a smaller place and sold the tractor on LBC. The buyer at first wasn't bothered about the CG, but rang soon after saying he needed one otherwise he wanted his money back.
We had some paperwork - bill of sale, specifications of the vehicle etc. I went to the prefecture and at first she was very doubtful. I was in an anxiety state, so after a few moments she said, OK then! Sigh of relief!
It might make a difference if you took some proof of the fire.

Very impressed with visit to prefecture. Slik and efficient. Got an identity fiche for the car, as the carte grise is actually gelé at the moment, after someone crashed into the side of the car and made it unroadworthy. It's sufficient for the CT, now the repairs are done, which will hopefully get everything sorted.

The tractor, albeit a burnt out carcase, was given fresh numero immatrication. The cashier said I could take it for ordering new plaques. Erm, not much point!
