Ebay Advert..is this legal

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Sylva-Phoenix-Project-with-V5_W0QQitemZ280467739627QQcmdZViewItemQQptZAutomobiles_UK?hash=item414d2e13eb

Have a read through the add (sounds an interesting car)....I wonder about the legality of using a V5 from a different car, isn't this ringing ??

a) it's illegal to sell a V5 separate from a car

b) as you say, using the identity of another car is illegal.

Unless this is a rebuild of a car that he has a genuine V5 for, he presumably has the V5 from a Sylva Star or Leader or something and is implying you can just use that for this new car.

Ask him if the car is already IVAd and registered; if not, shop him.

EDIT: If it's a Stuart Taylor kit, then it isn;t a Sylva (even though that's where the original design came from)

Can't remember seeing a Pan European winning races either, but should be interesting in the car.

I'd think it would be illegal to run the car with that documentation, but I bet there are more out there who have bucked IVA/SVA and are sharing the roads with us!!

The Pan Euro is very nice than you very much but yes, it's still ringing.....

Pan European

I was at Stuart Taylor's place a few times I saw his development work on the engine. As you say a great puller with a overdrive top gear, but the carb sat about 10 inches above the engine as is used a double choke system, not a pretty site.

Personally I'd be more concerned about the woefully inadequate engine mount shown in the last photo on the auction page. Someone else on the road having a not-quite-properly-registered car is mildly annoying. Following someone on the road when their engine falls out is likely to be more emotional...

The double weber system that they developed was (in my opinion) a way bad idea! The bike carbs are fine and a little modifying of the airbox renders adding webers unnecessary.
