Hey man dont pack up and go. Im in Delaware so cant speak for NJ . This April I did my altered 47 chevy pickup as an antique=no more insp ever . However i have talked to other guys who were not able too because lane inspector wrote altered on insp form. There are definate guide lines but it boils down to who you get in the lane and how they look at your ride. If NJ has a never go back again type catagory thats the one you try for . all the rest are the same. De antique tags are for parades ,shows and getting parts or repairs. I did not get the cheaper antique type ins as I wanted to be covered when ever I drive it. which is when ever i want.

NO hotrodders in N.J? Born and raised in Matawan, only 10 min. from Englishtown. Paul Blevins used to run C/M with a 57 Chevy wagon AT 10.40 sec with a small block! I registered my 66 Chevelle with antique plates.

racer,
Don't feel bad. I posted almost the exact same question here a few months back, and got no responses at all...
Anyway, I will be going through the same thing with my Willys. I have a certificate of origin from the manufacturer, and thats all. If you go on the NJMVS website, there is a passing reference to "specialty vehicles". You will need to call Trenton, and they will send you a packet of information & forms that will start you on the way.
If you already have a title, and just need to register it, should be no problem. If you are like me and don't have a title, then it gets a lot more complex. I think New Jersey rivals California in the motor vehicle red tape department.
You may also want to check out the Crankshaft Coalition Wiki as advertised on this board. I posted a little more information on it there.

Hope this helps,

Steve

Thanks Steve. I have only a hand written receipt, so I think we are in the same boat. If I find anything on my end I''ll let you know. Thanks again Steve

When i registered my Chevelle with QQ plates i did not have to get it inspected, but that was 10 years ago. It might have changed by now.

nope, no inspection required. and if your car was originally manufactured without seatbelts -u dont need seatbelts, if its a 20' s car manufactured without directionals -u dont need directionals etc etc etc.
