    I am guessing it is this scenario for our kits (extract from Government help site) :
    "Kit Conversions:
    This is where a kit of new parts is added to an existing vehicle, or old parts are added to a kit of a manufactured body, chassis or monocoque bodyshell. The general
    appearance of the vehicle will change and result in a different description being put on the Vehicle Registration Certificate (V5C).
    A vehicle will keep the registration number of the original vehicle if the original unaltered chassis/monocoque bodyshell has been used along with two other major
    components from the original vehicle.
    If a new monocoque bodyshell or chassis from a specialist kit manufacturer (or an altered chassis or bodyshell from an existing vehicle) is used with two original major components from the donor vehicle, a replacement registration number will be issued based on the age of the donor vehicle. The vehicle must have IVA or MSVA. The date of manufacture for the vehicle will be taken from the IVA or MSVA certificate."

    So reading that most cobra people would have front and rear axles from a donor jag (plus the original jag V5 would help here??? To ‘prove’ the axles) equals age related donor plate.

    Agreed, but the government web site doesnt specify exactly what they consider as major components for that section (e.g. are two axles two parts or one?), but in another section it gives specific points for various components. I do have the V5 from the donor Jag thankfully and like most Cobras it uses the axles, brakes etc so you would think it should qualify, however you do see Q plates around and I am sure you only have one go at applying!

    Thanks to some guidance from others on the forum and being guided to an amazing web site where a Cobra builder has shared his forms (http://www.antscobra.co.uk/iva.html) I am now just about done with the forms. However I do have a couple of questions....
    1. My car is based on a 1973 Jag and should end up with an age related plate, does that mean I also get free Road Tax? If not what class will it be with a 1970 engine?
    2. Do I need an insurance certificate to send off with the application?

    I believe that the vehicle has to be 40 years old and not substantially modified in the last 30 years to qualify for zero road tax.
