    • That's pretty exciting that you have quite a bit of info on the car, (even back to '78!!). As long as those receipts definitely match your car (is the VIN listed? - a colour change might be a problem) then they could provide proof that your car has been registered on Australian roads in a previous life. And is not just some grey import for parts or racing with no Import Approval. Surely also the old rego number(s) in SA or wherever, and contact details of previous owners, meaning you might be able to trace it's background further if you were so inclined. I'd go talk to the NSW rego authorities next so you know what you need to do to satisfy their rego requirements. Hopefully they will be accomodating given what info you have. PS. I recall blank repro data plates for a 2+2 model being made available via this forum a while back, maybe still available? I know there are several styles, the 2+2 ones being slightly different to the 2-seater ones, and early and late versions. But a nice finishing touch.
    • We don't have the compliance plates, but we do have the chassis number. We also have receipts for work done to the car dating back decades as well as a sales receipt for the car dating back to 1978 for a second hand car sale (the car is a 77 model). So we have quite a bit of info on the car. It seems to me that the car was in for restoration work in the 90s at Chris Milton in SA, and possibly there may have been a finanical dispute and the car was recovered by the owner with partially complete work (the engine is partially built). Part of that work was the engine bay clean up. They would have removed the plates to do that work, and it seems in whatever happened they were never refitted and have been lost.  We have done a PPSR on the chassis number and it is clean... not listed as stolen or written off.  I agree with you that I need to find out what I can do rego wise before committing heavily to this car... otherwise it will become a race car I guess!! But if you can import a car from another country and get it registered... surely a car that has a clean chassis number and has been registered before in Australia can get whatever is required to be registered again? I will have to speak to some workshops that deal in this kind of thing.

    • When I first read the OP and it mentioned a clean engine bay I wondered about the car's ID and provenance. There was a much modified 240Z or 260Z on FB a while back with no ID at all, meaning the owner - or new owner, as it was up for sale - might have a battle to register it if even possible. But at least you have the VIN. Normally there would be a factory data plate with ID numbers, and an Aus-new car of that era also a compliance plate. No old rego plates? Any history at all? As in which state it originated? Before you go spending any more $$$ go talk to the NSW rego authorities and find out what they will need for registration. Some states are tougher than others.
