2 Unknown? Coupe's discovered

One thing to bear in mind is that using original restored chassis is legal and there seem no guidelines as to how much or little of the pre restored chassis needs to exist. It is also possible possible to get a registration for a restored old vehicle on chassis number which you have. Problem then comes if it was declared scrapped and it may have been as reg has been re issued.

Regardless of identity and legalities, it's no small job as either the 5 chassis needs to be shrunk or the coupe shell stretched.
Could I be cheeky and ask what approach you took when doing yours?


I break stuff...... :w

Shell has been stretched. We get away with the proportions because it's so wide etc

It would read "superlight chassis for minor restoration, very original never repaired"
