As I see it, swapping a knackered old eg GP body for, say, a new Manx body is not changing the identity of a buggy in any way except perhaps for the colour, and that's still easy to change on the V5C.

Hi guys

V5 says Volkswagen and Saloon

All I have is the chassis at the moment. It hasn't been a buggy before, I acquired it a few months ago and it was shortened by Kingfisher a few years back but never used. But it's been sitting for a while so needs rubbing down and repainting.

There's no rush on this as funds are short due to the current pandemic situation (I'm a small business owner and currently just managing to keep my head above the water) but as time is what i do have, I'm trying to research as much as possible.

Thanks again chaps  ;-)up

You need to go the IVA route but will come out with a fully legal safe buggy.

Agreed, if starting to build a new Buggy, then the rules are that you must go down the IVA route

Loads of help on here and you will have a very desirable Buggy at the end of it   ;-)up

Oh well, oil get me coat... :'(

TBH if I had a chassis shortened by Kingfisher that didn't have Beetle on the logbook I'd sell it for big $$$ and build a long wheelbase buggy, just as cool and with no IVA hassles. There are some really nice lwb kits out there. ;-)up

The V5s of my kit cars all make interesting reading....

The 1968 VW has:
Make  VOLKSWAGEN
Model  1500
Saloon
Engine Number  FITTEDNOW2SEATSPORTS




At least they have the colour listed as Black, so they have one detail correct!

I just made sure the insurance company had pictures and knew exactly what a Nova was,
and no it's not a Vauxhall.

Regards
John

Local authorities and DVLC/DVLA have all come up with weird and wonderful descriptions in their time. 4x4 sports utility and 1302S sports convertible were both common at one time and both correct because that's what 'the man' said at the time.
