Co worker of mine is currently looking at this 5a on gumtree with intention of buying.

Looks ok to me but does anyone else have any input they can provide?

Motivated as that then brings the total in cwmbran to 4....and I'll be getting the middle bridge set for mighty :D

It's still showing on the site if you manually search but link sending renders it useless... :?

Reliant scimitar gte se5a 1972 its has a new galvanised chassis
This woke me up. If he's thinking tax exempt I don't think it will be, as the chassis number would be with the old chassis not carried on to the NEW chassis. Slap my wrist if I'm wrong but I don't think I am.

Terry, it's amazing how many people don't realise that....including at the dvla. I see many garage adverts every week advertising a vehicle with a new chassis and vehicle being tax and mot exempt (especially landrovers). It all depends on what has been notified on the registration I suppose. Only takes a serious accident involving one of these altered cars to see what happens and things to be tightened up.One thing for sure....the insurance company will go through hoops not to pay out!

You can keep the reg if it’s a NEW chassis to the same spec as the original.

Highly unlikely in this case though, I’d just advertise it as galv.

Glad I actually wanted a second opinion now, as I wasnt 100% on its pearly-ness, gentlemen, if it was you 2500, what would you do?

You can keep the reg. agreed. However, dvla are clear in their need for any quoted chassis/engine numbers on the documents to match the vehicle. They also state that mot exemption requires no major modifications. Is a new chassis a major modification?

I always thought that the chassis with the correct chassis number WAS the identity of the vehicle and any renewal of a complete chassis would give a new chassis number to the vehicle. I would leave this car alone as I have enough complications in my life as it is.

it won't be a new chassis as Jim says just a galvanised one which may have been the original dipped or not :w . new chassis's can be fitted to tax exempt vehicles, when I did my landrover the chassis came with certification showing it was exactly the same as original equipment. DVLA were happy with this as was my insurance company. Changing a chassis, new for old which is exactly the same isn't a modification, fitting up grades such as adjustable shocks, wilwood brakes, lsd's or anything that was NOT fitted at the factory AS standard are modifications, I do not know what they would class as a major modification though, maybe anything other than an Essex or cologne in a 6?

If the chassis is to the original spec it should be ok.
