I had to sell them because I didn't have space in garage, but I really want to play them now.... :( e.g light vic, bt-7 art....)

If its possible from a technical viewpoint, then I think adding this should be a no-brainer. 
 

But I am pretty sure someone from WG said that they hadnt stored old sales record when the buyback system was introduced.

They could just add a WG flag to the Collectors' Vehicles and them have the old gift vehicles be added under that.

Not hard to see how long you have played and then unlock them based on that.

 

Could even add Blueprints that randomly drop so new players could get them to for free.

The Light VIC, BT-7Art etc are for sale occasionally (it's how I got them!); they're usually hidden in the €9,95 bundle containing 30 days of premium and a dinky toy tank.

Try the Vehicle Recovery Tool on their website, I’ve got a few old gift tanks back this way including the bt-7art.

Indeed, this works fine. I recovered lots of old gift tanks that I had sold earlier. By using this tool My clanm8 even recovered his russian M3 light that he sold already 5 or 6 years ago.

 

It also is done relatively fast. just make a request and within minutes or in the current circumstances maybe a bit longer you get the tank back..

I can login here but the Vehicle Recovery Tool (support site) won't let me login. Any idea why?

The article says: Rare and other Premium vehicles (not available in the Tech Tree) can be restored at any time. They have no time limit. However I am not able to restore mine T7 car and light UK tank or any other of the tanks. Why is that?

Scroll down on https://eu.wargaming.net/support/en/products/wot/help/29710/29766/ and click the yellow ‘create ticket’ button. A dropdown menu appears with the gifted tanks you’ve sold in the past. Just select the one you’d like to buy back en send the ticket.

I know, it’s not easy to find but hey, WG..

Wow thanks. I guess I can create as many tickets as I want to retrieve more than 1 tank, right?

Yup! As long as you have the credits and garage slots you can get them all back.

The only tank in the game (as far as I know) with free ammo!

I had to check this myself and yeah it does, wow. Granted it's only the AP rounds but that's still pretty cool.

As far as I know it uses the same login system as the forum so no idea.

Wanted to restore my good old Beta Sherman M4A2E4 and one other vehicle, for collection reasons, i sold back in ... good knows 2011 or 2012.

Asked Support 2 times ~2 years ago, they refused to do so.

Weirdly enough that’s the only tank listed for me using the link above even though I had it restored by support several years ago.

Yeah thats weird. Maybe i try again after this long time. But the tanks wont show up for me if i use the link above. strange.

 

The explanation from the support was, that vehicles sold before update 8 or 9.xx (cant clearly remember) cannot be restored.

How long did you ‘wait’ on the page as when I used it the box to select which tank was blank and it took maybe five seconds or more before the beta Sherman option appeared?
