Agreed. I have sent the FBHVC response to Mike (the DVLA rep for the London Owners club) so we will see what he thinks.. When I spoke with him yesterday I got the impression he had been successful in getting age related plates recently but maybe I was mistaken...
I will discuss with Mr Edmunds a little more and feedback..
I feel there is a lot of confusion above. looking on DVLA website it seems they have different procedures for 'rebuilt cars' and for 'radically altered, and for 'reconstructed classic' and for 'old' vehicles.
They seem to interpret 'reconstructed classic' to be a coming together of lots of old components to create a fresh vehicle. In that case it seems reasonable that they do not allow new components.
If we are trying to register an 'old vehicle' then I think a few new components are allowed.
There is confusion regarding terms such as 'rebuilt' (do they mean re-assembled?) And what does 're-constructed' mean?
Also what is a component? And what is a major component. I would interpret a petrol pump as a component, a new diaphragm as a part, and an engine as a major component.
In another section they make it clear that any car given a Q plate will need an IVA test, and I think that requires such things as anti-lock brakes!
I give up! Have spent the last 3/4 hour trying to get a post past the blinking spam filter, and failed!
