Built up vehicle report

I'm coming close to the end of a sand rail build so have started to look at what I need to do to to get it on the road.



As the 'kit' is based on an unmodified 1303 chassis, and retains enough original parts, I'm hoping I dont need an IVA and can just complete the V627/1 built up vehicle report.



I have the V5 but no receipts. I bought both the chassis and zzr1100 engine from eBay for a couple of hundred quid each. At the time I didn't really think about receipts. The eBay history doesn't go back far enough for me to contact the sellers.

the * says, Receipts for replacement parts must be produced to support applications. So I'm presuming I dont need a receipt for the chassis or any part from the Beetle?

That looks very smart.

It is a while back when I built my VW beach buggy, like yours it was only a body swap. I filled in the same form, sent it, a week later the police came out to verify the chassis and engine numbers (they were particularly clueless) and the DVLA sent me back the new V5 with is still called a VW Beetle! oh FFS with only the change of colour different. Looking back I wouldn't even have bothered and just told them of the change in colour, as the whole exercise was a prefect example of pointless paper shuffling. For the insurance it was down as a VW beachbuggy, was stupidly cheap

There is no way a IVA is required.

Get it finished and enjoy

Thanks

The main thing I'm questioning is that I dont have the original registration or a receipt for the bike engine. So the 'origin' box is blank. It also says,
"Receipts for replacement parts must be produced to support applications"

Is this likely to matter?

So if you go to ebay does it not show your purchase history?

Yeah kinda what I'm saying is your going to go through all this and get a V5 back that just says it's a green VW Beetle with an 1100cc engine. Hardly worth the bother of dealing with the DVLA in the first place was it? Personally I'd be more focusing on getting this 40+ year old beach buggy you bought like that, road tax and MOT exempt. Looking back on my old buggy, the only reason I didn't use it very much was that it was a lot of money to tax, MOT and insure just to use it for a handful of days a year when such a basic car could be driven. Pity had I kept it I'd only have to pay about 130 a year now.
