    I'm sure that wouldn't be allowed! However, the crashed car could be rebuilt (with contemporary parts) and not fall foul of the IVA - after all, it would then be a restoration wouldn't it?

    There have been a few of those on ebay recently, various kit cars with no v5. 'Uncompleted projects' obviously stripped . A 'Dutton 7' being sold by a dealer which was actually a well known Locust7 replated.

    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.

    Most of us have seen kit car, and classis V5 docs, for sale openly on ebay and else where, with and without chassis or parts of the car. Whatever. I would not condone anything illegal, but it is up to the individual how they see the( rebuild) of any thing. As the saying goes each to his own.
