|39 chev||I am trying to register my newly built T-bucket right now. I am a licensed inspection mechanic,so I know the requirements.I passed enhanced inspection on July 11,and sent paperwork in that day.The paperwork was sent back on Aug 8,saying I needed a cover over the gas tank,and a seperate filler neck. I made a stainless cover for the tank,and resent pictures on Aug 9. I am still waiting for my VIN and title. I can't beleive it takes 2 months to do 20 minutes worth of paperwork.It's job security for those drones in the DMV to drag everything out as long as possible. They could care less about satisfying the taxpayers who pay their salaries.|

Mine was titled as a "specially constructed vehicle" but I did not need fenders.

In case anyone following the thread wants an update. Last week the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania approved all the required paperwork and gave me a VIN plate and registration. My advice to anyone struggling with the state DMV is to read, read and reread the inspection requirements and just give them what they want.
PA sent two inspectors to my shop, twice, to take a closer look at our unusual vehicle, take pictures, measurements, etc. Seven weeks later they sent me a list of items that needed to be modified (ANSI laminated windshield, tank filler location, cover over gas tank, wiper switch location, bumper height, muffler and header heat shield, engine cover). Once everything was corrected, they reinspected the vehicle and processed my paperwork. The two guys I dealt with at the DMV were very helpful and were just following the rules the state legislature dreamed up. Our cart is so crazy I am a little surprised they passed it, but every line of the PA code is met, so there was no choice but to issued us a VIN.
I trailer the cart everywhere it goes and never go more than 30 MPH. It is a fun around-town promotional thing so no-worries about me rolling over and killing people.

I just received My Street Rod plates, Registration, VIN plate, and title......
My title states it is a "Special Constructed Street Rod".
I thought they were two different catagories in the PA street rod vehicle code specifications but I really don't care now........
I am waiting for a warmer day so I can get a state inspection sticker to complete the four month ordeal.....
The person who rejected my truck because they said they "could not see the engine compartment" sent specific instructions on how to mount the vin plate.
It said, "If it is a vehicle without an engine compartment, the vin tag must be attached to the firewall".
Good luck to all the rest. Whoever has to go through this.

|John(Maynor)Hodgen||Hey 38 mag....do you have a build thread on your rod? I've been researching doing homemade bodies out of recycled car parts. I'd like to read thru yours if you have one. Yhanks--John T.|

Pennsylvania inspection law hassles?
I got this a special construction title and a street rod plate for this car, the only pre 1948 part on the car is the radiator shell. It has a Speedway chassis and I built the body from 3 junk yard car roofs. It went through the enhanced inspection and I had to submit the paperwork 2 times.
