    Always someone in government that's a wanabee. Had a customs man hold me up coming out of Canada for 4 hours one time for 70 cents difference on the type of a generator. You could see the buttons popping off his shirt...………..Head swelling...…..the works.

    It’s been in place for a while, Kev, as the FBHVC did get the DVLA to concede on replacement bodies to some extent. As noted on the VHRA registration guide: “Some replacement bodies are acceptable when applying for a period registration. To meet the DVLA rules, it must be a body that could have been placed on the chassis from the outset, or is of a style which historically has become associated with the marque.”

    Despite originally being posted back in 2015, I try to keep the guide up to date, you’ll find it here: Registration Guide

    Are we just talking a body style that would have been available or a method of body construction that could have been available ?

    Cheers for the link

    As with a lot of this stuff, there is some ambiguity, which is no bad thing in my opinion. This is the quote from the FBHVC that the VHRA work to:

    "The application should demonstrate that the replacement body is one that could have been placed on it from the outset or is of a style which historically has become associated with the marque."

    Aftermarket bodies have been available to hot rodders for more than sixty years, that's not counting speedster bodies that were available pretty much from day one of Model Ts, so it's safe to say they have become associated with the marque for the purpose of registration. That would encompass all manner of materials, wood, fibreglass, aluminium, etc.
