Bear in mind that vintage tax kicks in from the 30 year anniversary of manufacture date, not registration date. Think RF150 is the form you need if you want to just post it in.

I tried to avail of the date of registration rule,(car manufactured 13 November 1989) but on the tax book it said April 12th 1990 as date of first registration. Yer wan behind the counter in the tax office was just giving me the computer says no. Got onto Shannon, and they told me to get onto revenue. I didn't bother after that, tbh. I wasn't going to be driving the car in the winter, so it really would have been no advantage to me, save I could have drove it on the odd good days that's starting to appear now.
When is a Vehicle Classed As Vintage & Taxation of Vintage & Veteran Vehicle
A vehicle is classed as a vintage/veteran once its 30 years old from date of manufacture and a concessionary rate of motor tax applies – See List of Motor Tax Rates.

I think they usually go by the reg date unless you can (argue and) prove the manufacturing date. With VWs this could be done with a "birth cert" from Wolfsburg.
This is my experience with imports anyway.
