Dynacorn shell

(1/2) > >>

Wattever:
Hi I'm from Canada. I've got a 69 Mach 1. Numbers matching. I used a dynacorn shell for the body. Have taken all the vin identification off the original body. Can it be imported into Australia?

69candy:
Are the old numbers on the new body? If so I would think you could

AussiePhil:
Hey Wattever,
I read a little about importing cars into Australia, wow! Complicated!
IMO!
I think you need to get Legal advice, technically it should be registered as a kit car under modern Vehicle regulations.
Good luck, hope you can get your car imported.
If anyone knows Barney would know! Barnett468 may be able to help?
Cheers Phil.

67FBGT:
All depends whether in the state you are shipping the car to, the authorities consider it illegal to rebirth a car with an aftermarket body shell or not.

It brings up the whole circular discussion about whether a rebodied car is substantially still the 'original' car it always was despite a very major part having been replaced, or whether it is now in fact a recently made low volume kit car utilising all or most of the components and the identity from a car of an earlier era and being presented as that same car now repaired.
Tricky.  :bolt:

AussiePhil:
Hey Wattever,
What is the resale value like in Canada.
May be easier to sell it there.
Save the hassle and purchase a car here!
Adding to the import cost these days is the asbestos check cost!
Cheers Phil.
