    It was easier to spot in the days of tax discs. I remember one rod show seeing a lovely red 3 window with 'Humber' on the disc and a 27 glass T with Hillman, happy days!

    how has it ended in tears.

    bloke only asked if it was a problem.

    having no insurance doesnt seam to be much of a problem for a few million.


    first of all you need to find a policeman.then you need to find one who is going to bother to pull you.

    are they that interested.

    Insurance wasn't mentioned by the poster ?

    He asked if it was a problem, well, yes it is, and it would be sods law he gets pulled !

    Then what happens, he has a vehicle that most likely would not be even close to passing an IVA test. End of story.

    It's effectively a kit car presumably based on at least some parts from a '72 Capri.

    There's a chap who I see occasionally in the local Lidl car park that drives an NG TF kit car. This was a body and separate chassis kit based on MGB mechanicals. His has an 'H' plate (69/70), which I'm guessing was the plate from the MGB that was broken to provide parts for his kit. His car's got an Alfa Romeo engine. It's nowhere near the current 8 point rule. He apparently built the car twenty odd years ago. He's a respectable middle aged bloke. Odds on he's got it insured as a kit car. There's specialised insurance to cover this with folk like Adrian Flux. If he was stopped it would probably be to admire the vehicle. Can't see difference between this and the OP's vehicle.

    Big difference as the NG WOULD have started life as a MGB and it was perfectly acceptable prior to 84 to retain the original number , insome cases even the original make and model with just a body style change . So it WAS once an H reg MGB unlike the OPs 'kit car'.

    I got stopped in a rod over 30 years ago ( passenger) where the Police wanted to know why the 'kit car' had an old registration . It was ACTUALLY a genuine 30s rod

    Each logbook tells its own story, you just need to be able to read it correctly.I still offer a 'translation' service for a donation to my local Hospice for those who have queries about their OWN car .

    Looking at it from a different perspective how would 'you' think a 32B with new chassis, new GRP body ,crate engine So cal beam and Strange new back axle to be registered ?

    Crushed is an urban myth - stop repeating rubbish put out by people that don't know.
