By Ian Edwards of F.B.H.V.C.
The Federation is now in a position to properly explain a topic previously only mentioned in passing. It may be recalled that over the last few months l have made some cryptic references to the potential pitfalls that could arise from modifying a monocoque bodyshell.
During that period the Federation has been involved in discussion with DVLA and with the owners and clubs involved with two particular cars. From that we are now in a position to provide much clearer guidance.
Regardless of what may have happened in the past, any alterations to a monocoque bodyshell will be considered by DVLA to fall within the ‘radically altered’ category and the rules set out therein will apply (see lNF26 and https://www.gov.uk/vehicle registration/radically-altered-vehicles). As a result, DVLA will cancel the vehicle’s original identity, require the vehicle to be marked with a DVLA VIN, the vehicle will be required to obtain an individual Vehicle Approval (IVA) and a ‘Q’ registration will be issued.
lf the vehicle is already registered the existing registration will be withdrawn.
The two instances referred to concerned saloons or coupes converted to convertibles but the same approach would apply to saloons converted to pickups and other similar changes.
Exactly the same principle would apply to modified chassis and indeed to modified frames for motorcycles.
FBHVC are fully aware that for the large majority of historic vehicles it is not possible to obtain an IVA without expensive and significant modifications which would in any case destroy the historic integrity of the vehicle.
Thus the only conclusion can be ‘don’t do it!’
Discussions continue with DVLA about how this policy can best be brought to the attention of vehicle owners as FBHVC feel that currently it is not generally appreciated that modifications of this nature will bring the vehicle within the ambit of the ‘radically altered’ rules.
Hi Nigel hope you are well
