AndyL Alerted me last night to this announcement from Dave Watson on the IOCGB forum regarding the problem that owners of late 1959 built Isetta's have had in proving there 1960 registered cars were actually built in 59 and thus qualify for MOT exemption.
After much time and hassle and back and forth with the DVLA i can now confirm that all UK built Isettas with a chassis number LESS THAN 321958 are eligible for no MOT
This is based on the glass`s guide and is the only document the DVLA will recognise.
I have tried arguing but all on deaf ears I'm afraid. Contacted Glass`s and they don't really want to know either.
So, if your Isetta falls into the above category please contact me off line and we should be able to get the date changed on your log book.
As my chassis number is lower than this I'm hopeful of getting the manufacture date changed on the V5.
Many thanks to Dave for all his hard work on this and a raspberry to those Rumsters who told me mine was a "1960 built car, deal with it!"
