Re: V12 2+2 Coupe converting to DHC - Feasible?

Jay Lenos car certainly had some extensive work done, I think the American Laws must be easier regarding modifications.

I'm still looking into it, and haven't given up on the idea yet. If it looks like the paperwork can all be sorted out then I'll go for it.

Re: V12 2+2 Coupe converting to DHC - Feasible?

How is it that countless replicas from Lynx to Challenger, or Realm to Suffolk, Proteus et al don’t have Q plates? Some are based on 4-door Jag donors, some on Es, but all are more altered than a decapitated 2+2? A decapitated 2+2...I like that! :bigrin: However I do agree it seems odd that a fibre...

Re: V12 2+2 Coupe converting to DHC - Feasible?

This would definatly be classed as not useing the original unmodified chassis/monocoque and 5 points must come from having the original or new and unmodified chassis, monocoque bodyshell or frame..... I cant see any other catagory that it could be registered in and not get a Q plate....but im no ex...

Re: V12 2+2 Coupe converting to DHC - Feasible?

Thanks for all the reply's so far, keep them coming! Of course the car would need to be correctly registered, I'ts something I hadn't considered and need to look into. Resale value really doesn't come into it, but of course most buyers know exactly what to look for and would always be able to tell t...

Re: V12 2+2 Coupe converting to DHC - Feasible?

Hmm, value for me doesn't really come into it as the car isn't worth much as it is anyway. It's more about finding a potential way to realise my life's dream.

A bit of a strange question from me unfortunately, but one I hope someone can help me with. It's fairly long winded and apologies in advance if I don't seem to make much sense. In a nutshell, I want to know if a V12 2+2 could be converted to a DHC. I've had a quick look into it and understand there ...
