    Hi,
    Not wishing to "diss" any of this, BUT, as the club knows the manufacture dates for all these kits ,,,,,, how is it possible (really and trullyo) to have a kit registered as 1976 when, as we all know the first kit wasn,t produced and sold until 1979 ish?

    I think its all down to mixed practice back in the day by the powers that be - how many roadsters had Q plates and how many were allowed to keep their original plate? Made no sense then and doesn't now - should owners take advantage? Of course!

    It all depended on the local DVLA office's interpretation of the rules and before 1998 when SVA was introduced some offices allowed the 8 point rule. Which allowed the car to keep its donor details.
    5 for the chassis
    2 for suspension
    2 for axles
    2 for transmission
    2 for Steering assembly
    1 for the engine
    Also it seems that when the SVA was introduced there was an amnesty on cars still registered on their donors identity, these cars had to be inspected and the V5 amended but allowed keep the original registration.
    Ben Caswell probably not the last word on anything here!!

    Gareth are you still there? - presumably 1976 is the manufacture date of your donor car. How did you get the manufacturer changed to Marlin?
    I've got a 1977 marina-based roadster, assembled and given a Q plate in 1986. I do still have the V5 for the Marina and it still shows on the DVLA site.
    Do you know if I cam just send the V5 off to DVLA to change it to a Marlin?

    It all sounds a bit dodgy to me.
    Manufactured date of Marlin chassis, build date of the donor, etc.
    but if you can get away with it, fantastic, but if DVLA change their minds, which they are prone to do, what then?
    Documentation, as always will be the key.
