    I’d be interested to know how you have tax exemption, mine was built 1997, so been a kit car slightly longer than yours and is on a V plate but date on log book is date registered as kit so don’t think I can get tax exemption, maybe I’m wrong.

    Hi There,

    When I was building the car I used as many parts as I could that i could say came from the Donor vehicle. These were the drive train, engine and gearbox ( which I had already swapped for the Rover V8 on the donor jag log book ) and suspension and by doing so I scored enough points to enable "historic Vehicle" status and get the "J" plate assigned. This paid dividends later on ( in 2014 ?? ) when they changed the rules and it became road tax exempt.

    You might be in luck, the Government website (link) says:

    "Vehicles exempt from vehicle tax
    If your vehicle was built before 1 January 1980, you can stop paying vehicle tax from 1 April 2020.

    If you do not know when your vehicle was built, but it was registered before 8 January 1980, you do not need to pay vehicle tax from 1 April 2020."

    I don't know whether you can apply and see what happens?

    And you should be OK to use a black & silver plate if you so desire.

    OK, so having checked my cars details I find they are similar to those of Ted’s Sumo, although registered in 1998 the year it f manufacture is 1980 (although does not state when in that year). Need to look into this in more detail.

    Thanks for all the feedback on this
