new 6b

Post by agriffo2000 » Wed May 17, 2017 9:35 pm

Hello everyone,
this arrived today - CBR440W

Image


Not too sure what my plans are for it are! It has obviously been very well cared for in the past as it has a history file three inches thick and the car has all sorts of upgrades. Does anyone know the car or why it has an odd DVLA vinplate rather than a Reliant one.

Well done, Ade, it looks pretty smart :D

When you say it has an "odd DVLA vinplate rather than a Reliant one" do you mean that it's an odd DVLA plate, which bears a standard-format Reliant VIN (i.e. SCD19************) or is the actual VIN number non-standard as well?

It has a DVLA issued VIN (SABTVRO...) which indicates that it's been extensively rebuilt.

There is a receipt from 1986 which was for more than £4k which included new engine and lots of bodywork so perhaps this is when the change of vin happened.
