Pickup cab wanted......especially if you can deliver; and especially if it has got a V5! but anything considered.
Please PM me.
Thanks, John.

The V5 stays with the chassis, so what you are asking is not really all above board...

Yes it seems strange to me. If you buy a new chassis, you are not given a V5 with it. If you get an old chassis from ebay to weld up, you do not get a V5 with it.
A chassis is like any other body panel, almost a service item; but the cab surely stays with the vehicle for all of its life.
Information is usually stamped or fixed to the bulkhead; not the chassis. Information for commercials is fixed to the passenger door card.
However, I am not disputing Bowies knowledge.

No luck finding a cab yet anyway. :(

A van cab would do.....I have got a cab back.

In order to retain the Registration number on a vehicle that is having a new standard chassis (different rules apply to a modified chassis) the chassis must
1. mirror the original and have the same spec
2. have a manufacturer specification sheet or receipt
3. use two other major components of the vehicle ( engine, axle etc)

That way the original number can be retained on the repaired vehicle.

Modified chassis and even converted vans/pickups fall into the modified category and have to adhere to stricter rules.
