Registering a uk car in France

Post by bdmorris » Tue Oct 08, 2019 1:39 pm

I’ve been in conversation with a French man who was interested in buying my cobra (correctly registered as a BRA in 1971 from the donor car). He now says he cannot register it in France and I can’t quite understand why not. ( his English is not that good) Does anyone have any experience of this?

I know (vaguely) somebody in France who has registered 2 Ginettas over the past couple of years.
His name is Terry Piner and he run's a company called www.frenchruralcottages.com I am pretty sure he would be happy to help.
The phone number is at the bottom of his webpage.
Good luck.

Thanks for that I’ll try that link - though I feel that the Certificate of Conformity maybe involved and that is the problem?

I know that a friend of mine that now lives in France managed to register his Pilgrim Cobra in France eventually but I know it wasn't easy.
It took him a couple of years.

What ive seen the last years is, that the registration date have to make sense in relation to the company providing/ building the kit car; the registration date based on the donor car is quite unique to UK and often THE hurdle in other countries.

I sold my last Hawk to nice chap from France - Jean Jacques - who was very clear on the correct registration requirements for export to France. I don't have contact details anymore but may still be a member? And may be able to advise? Good luck. Jerry
