    This SHOULDN'T be a problem but if anyone can make it one it's DVLA.

    First and foremost car should already be in Historic class.

    To be 100% sure of no problems the vehicle should have no chassis mods and be built within the 8 points rule.

    Take a photo of all work done as you go along but all DVLA NORMALLY require is a photo of original vehicle as show o V5C showing it's number plate .

    Then they require a photo of the chassis with the number pate showing.

    Next they require a photo of the new body on there once again with number plate showing.

    You need to send the V5C , with alteration to body style plus downloaded and completed V112 form. They examine photos and if happy send back amended V5C .If they are not happy they will send out SGS to inspect .

    The problems is that at the moment DVLA seem not to be allowing body changes BEFORE being put into Historic class ad tat seems to be being interpreted as also no swaps AFTER registration.

    They are getting themselves in a knot over not knowing the difference between a body ( with chassis) and a bodyshell ( monococque construction ) and are applying their own rules incorrectly .

    No one appears to want to take them head on to clarify and Federation newsletters seem to suggest that they simply will no longer allow bodyswaps.

    May be best to speak with VHRA for their current take on it. I have helped change a book over from pick up to Coupe recently and that went fine with no problems.The main thing is ensuring that the vehicle complies with 8 points or you will get into a world of hurt if inspected ( IVA etc) .
