MODIFIED old chassis = Q plate AFTER BIVA.
All you need to get an age related plate the BIVA route is a NEW chassis (either with receipt or home built with plans and receipts for material ) plus 2 major components from a donor logbook for those parts.
In case you don't know an age related plate will not entitle you to Historic 'free' tax, only stock or modified within 8 points legally entitles you to free' tax.

So then..to keep or sell on...
Ive called in an owed favour and aquired an old chassis for vitually free of a friend (long abandoned project), original running gear, steering etc, V8 update to V5 which is soon to be in my name. No body at this stage
The chassis however been modified a fair bit. It has all been very well done, boxed, a good strong chassis that I would like to use.
In a nutshell I would prefer an age related plate on a finished project if I can.
Obviously the 8 point rule is out the window regarding a re-body.
So, if i was to go down the amatuer built root, class the chassis as new amateur built (which it pretty much is), am I right in saying I have a good chance to be awarded an age related plate as I will still be using steering, axless and suspension? Although the engine is not the capacity of the original car, could this also be classed as a donor part?
Regarding the chassis, I understand I could make up my own VIN for this? what about axle weights etc when applying?
