re-vinning a car

ok, i know this subject has been done to death, but I'm looking at a mid 60's falcon project that needs a bit of work.

i've never had to get a car back into the system again so what am i up for? the vehicle rego lapsed in the 90's but still shows up on carjam. has some rust which shouldnt be too much of a problem.

what am i expected to have done mechanically for a vin? brakes will all need cylinders done at least.

other than that what's involved? I wouldn't be planning on restoring it fully, just doing the minimum to get it on the road, then doing it bit by bit as needed.

i'm not going to commit to this if there's too much involved at the start of it all to be worthwhile.

from what ive read its around $700 to get through the process??

RE: re-vinning a car

It aint all bad, depends who you get

down there i dunno mate, up here a mate put new pads and brakes hoses in a Mk1 go-tina and it ran straight thru but ive heard horror stories

the best bet is to go in with an open mind (and wallet)

if you want it done cheaper, send it up here obviously - spend a week up here sorting it perhaps?

main thing is DONT HIDE ANYTHING or else its all kind of red tape

learn the easy way - from every other bastarrrd lol

RE: re-vinning a car

thanks cuz, yeah i think you have to choose wisely down here from what i've heard. i'm just not sure how far they dig - i'm not going to try hide anything, but do they pull the brakes apart etc, or is that just for imported cars?

also how much history do you need? obviously a car that shows up on carjam has been in the system, then its just proving ownership? is that where the police letter comes in?

if i had myself sorted earlier i could have got your fil to A frame it up tomorrow lol!

all depends how the deal stacks up whther its even worthwhile.....

RE: re-vinning a car

haha im not looking for a 2010 morris oxford.

so basically the re-vin process is just a really thorough WOF inspection by a certified inspector? as long as all the necessary paperwork matches up?
