You would have to find out how this is registered and then check with the RTA in NSW.

Also when you call up the Roads And Maritime don't just ask the
person who is on the help line, make sure you speak to
someone who actually deals with Registration. In particular
Interstate Rego transfers!

Thanks guys.

Finances are in place. Car's still for sale. Just need to align the wife tonight lol (Valla at the weekend went a long way to helping with that)

QLD Transport and Main Roads has it down as a 1969 Manx Roadster. If all goes well tonight I'll get in touch with the RTA tomorrow

Great news mate i hope it works out for you. Were you up at Valla looking for
a buggy?

Id also speak with an engineer as well as the Roads and Maritime as i have just purchased an interstate LWB buggy which
was fully engineered and registered, but it needed to be re engineered in NSW.

Let me know if you would like the engineers details.

Was up at Valla (stayed at Nambucca though) but wasn't looking to buy.

Have an FJ cruiser I'm selling and was thinking of trading in for a Ford Ranger. Been wanting a SWB Manx for ever though and after seeing all the buggies at Valla just got to thinking why not buy something I really want :)

Pretty much got the OK this end so an engineers details would be good, thanks.

Next decision will hopefully be do I have it transported or road trip :)

We also stayed at Nambucca, and I towed my buggy up, it was our first time to Valla.

The engineer I used was Athol Mullin
Mullin Engineering at Cardiff.

Hope it works out for you, are you looking for a LWB or SWB.

Were you staying at the apartments just before you get to the White Albatross holiday park (that's where we were)?

Think we walked past you a couple of times lol.

Definitely after a SWB :)

We were in the last old Guest House on the road down to the Breakwall, I towed my Buggy up behind my
Triton, id like an FJ!!

Yeah SWB are awesome, I've always loved them, one day ill get one, but i need 4 seats at the moment so ill stick with the LWB.

How'd you go mate with the Roads and Maritime?

First guy at the RMS was helpful but was just reading off how to do interstate transfers.

Second guy in the technical enquiries was a tool lol. Sounded like I'd got him off his smoko or something and was telling me it would need completely re-engineering and the QLD cert would be useless as it would be all done under current NSW rules and pretty much hung up on me...

Called Athol Mullen regarding the engineering, awesome guy. Said that as long as the cars been regoed in QLD for more than 2 years and I have a slip for the date of the chassis shortening that its all pretty straight forward.

Cars been registered with mods continually since 1987 apparently so looks like it should't be too much hassle :)


on a side note I was also told that there's discussions that the modification rules might be changing to relate to the year of the car... so if you have a 60's chassis you only have to follow 60's modification rules making shortening the chassis possible again...

So does that mean Athol is saying he will give you an Engineers certificate for it as long as you can prove its registration and mod papers ?
