Whatever About it being unregistered, I’d say all duties and vat were paid at the time .
There was no way to fiddle the system out of import duties.
This happened because cars weren’t released from the docks without everything paid upfront ,unlike now where dealer pays the vrt upon registration.

No. It would get an age-related plate.

This was the case with this truck which ran on trade plates and was unregistered for years.

It’s been awhile, years infant, moderatorships revoked and all . Nice to see some familiar names still here.
Looking forward to pics of the OPs car. Stuff like that is always intriguing.

I assume the tyres will be shot , the brakes probably seized ,and maybe a few rubber items under the bonnet perished, but other than that it should be more or less perfect ?? , I mean under cloths in a dry shed ,so completely away from rain and sun , and presumably put away before it had any chance to start rusting or corroding ..

Dear God! This alfa beta lad is a marketing genius. The car will be worth a fortune with all the hype this thread is generating.
There'll be lads fighting over it.

Reminds me of the old 'Big ED loves Mona' ad campaign.
