    Ford Pop

    Hello All

    I bought this recently.



    Standby for loads of questions

    First couple :

    Engine options - I was thinking modern V8, possibly Lexus - thoughts ?
    Chassis - if i gusseted and boxed the standard chassis and added crossmembers, would it be strong enough ?
    Axle options - what are people fitting ? are there modern options ?
    I want to keep it on an age related plate, not a 'Q' plate - I'm aware of the 8 point rule - what can be accommodated in terms of mods with this ?
    I have the chassis number and reg number, but no V5 (got a full receipt from seller, been off the road for years) - what's the best way of either retaining the original number or getting a similar age related plate ?

    Thanks in anticipation

    Rob

    " what's the best way of either retaining the original number or getting a similar age related plate ?"

    if you are aware of the 8 point rule then you will know the answer ?

    as you dont have a log book i guess you dont know if it is already in the "historic" tax class ?

    Yes, sorry I wasn't too clear. I meant getting it registered as it is currently, prior to any modifications being carried out.
    I would guess it is tax exempt given its age

    Cheers

    if you have a chassis number and reg then just fill a form in send of your £25 and apply for the v5c

    it might not be classed as historic if it has not been on the road for a while,it might still be "plg" or "not licensed"

    If you carry out the mods you have listed then hopefully your all ready aware that you fall short of the 8 points required

    Does that mean IVA and a Q plate Darren ?

    I see lots of rods with similar mods running what appear to be original plates or at least age related - are there any workarounds for this, whilst maintaining legality ?

    If it has to go through IVA, I may as well go for it and build a new chassis with trick suspension.

    It's beginning to look like a custom chassis and IVA then.
    At least it'll be strong with decent modern suspension.
    Is there anybody building Pop chassis ?
