    29 roadster that is a ford capri.

    Hi all, I have a 1929 ford roadster of glass fibre and made in the 1990s. The problem is, it was registered as a 1972 ford capri which it is clearly not. Is this going to be a problem if I am stopped and they check the vehicle? Is it a problem to ask DVLA to change it to a Q plate. It is mot and always has been.

    They wouldn't just put it on a Q without an IVA test, more likely they just withdraw the number and leave you at best, de registered and at worst crushed.

    Doesn't sound like it was ever 'registered' as said.
    More of a very simple swap over of number and vin plates.

    In context 'relatively' an option over 30 years ago (not condoning) but in today's dinero if you prod the bear YOU will have a sore head
