Wasn't there a thread on here containing information on eBay log book sales?
 
Abit of a resource for people who come across a freshly rebuilt car at auction with suspiciously little historic paperwork.


It was my suggestion, it got shot down by some members probably already driving tax/mot exempt MPI sportspacks.

I've given up trying which I'm sure a few certain members will be pleased to hear.

He has now scrubbed his name and reg from the photos of the V5 and taken off the 227 from the reg to disguise it.

If you look at the last page of the log book it already says:-

'Rebuilt - Assembled from parts some or all of which were not new' by DVLA under the 'special notes' section which can not be removed, so any buyers would know it will always be a 'bitsa' rebuild and valued as such.

 

With brand new Mk1 Bodyshells now available from Heritage any Mk1 log book will be worth money and as it is easy to spot a new Mk1 shell, i don't see a problem if a few more Mk1's get built around a V5 in a legal way for road or motorsport use. They will always be valued less than an original shell car but you still need £10-12k for the new shell to begin your totally rust free Mk1 project rebuild.......

 

So if the logbook already says that, the previous car was a flat-pack job?

 

Makes no difference obviously as the new one will also say that.
