Did you declare that as un-modified despite its pre-67 wings and alloy wheels?
Alloys on the exemption of:
"in respect of axles and running gear changes made to improve efficiency, safety or environmental performance"
Because the bigger, modern alloys are substantially better performing than original steelies.
"changes of a type, that can be demonstrated to have been made when vehicles of the type were in production or in general use (within ten years of the end of production)"
I reckon people would have slapped on pre-67 wings on their bug when it still was in production.
Either way, I think he's safe.
