    MOT Exempt question

    I was looking at an ad for a 1955 Ford F1 pickup,it was English registered,had a late model 302 roller engine
    a mustang 2 front clip and a ford 9" rear end,the ad said it was tax and MOT exempt,how can it be MOT exempt with
    all these major modifications?

    i am asking that if i read it right to be mot exempt there has to be no major modifications
    done in the last 30 years.
    the vehicle in the ad has had major modifications done.
    Now has he found some kind of loophole in the system,or is the vehicle legally not mot exempt.

    maybe he done the mods 30 years ago.

    when one of my cars comes round to being mot excempt,the mods would have been done 30 years.thats quite a scary thought

    Saw a lovely modded Z car for sale on Faceache and seller got called out on mot exempt claim. Comments were removed next day. It's a jungle out there, Cheetah.

    Technically if a UK registered old truck is clipped and is done real good I can't see how it would get picked up!? Not saying it's right or wrong. We got ten years of fossil fuel left and misdemeanours don't mean **** to me. Lol

    It comes unstuck when you make false claims. I thought chopped chassis was straight to biva.

    When I sell up and retire to Acu Pulco (spain ) i will discuss details privately and if a pile of provenance proof inspires no confidence I will price accordingly close to a pile of parts etc.

    What the seller means is "I've declared the vehicle as MOT exempt & no one has challenged this" "Do you feel lucky too?"

    let's say it was standard when first registered as historic. He doesn't have to declare anything at annual road tax time as it is pre 1960, that question doesn't come up. Just that nobody has told DVLA of the mods......... let's face it, how many people want a clipped truck? Answer, nearly everybody who wants a truck. Yet this question keeps cropping up when somebody wants to sell one... can't work it out lol

    It's all dancing on the head of a pin when it comes to the rules, as nobody's getting hurt or defrauded. However, I do worry that in the event of an insurance claim the insurer (other party?) might use it as an excuse to not pay out.
