    - that doesn't make sense - your car isn't registered until you have passed IVA....and then applied for registration?

    Hi,

    If fitting a period engine not new (LS) you really need a pre 1992 block to avoid fuel injection emissions. All old timer engines must have a dating certificate proving the year from an engine builder thats on the DVSA list. If you have this then you will comply to the engine age emissions. So if buying from the US then factor in having to pay for certificate back in the UK.

    Yup i have a ‘67 289, really pretty, and i have an engine age certificate that corresponds to the stamp put on it by the assessor. This is on top of the original date code and casting number.
    I think pre aug 31st 1975 is the visual test.
