Vintage tractor registration
« on: October 03, 2011, 06:45:47 pm »
I have an old International B414 tractor, this has a registration plate however the DVLA do not recognise it as when new in 1966 registration was apparently thru the local authority (not the DVLA which it would seem did not exist at the time). I am led to believe that I need to undertake registration to obtain a road licence even though the licence is free.

The DVLA has sent me a list of owners clubs to assist however there isn't one for International Harvester.

Can anyone help or point me in the right direction or offer any pointers.

Thank you

contact one of the owners clubs mentioned
photograph the number plate
photograph the vin plate
you should still get an age related plate     DO NOT ACCEPT A Q PLATE
possibly the number has been alocated to another vehicle    there has been some funny goings on with vehicle numbers
the owners clubs  should confirm to dvla that everything is correct vin plate and number  relevant to that age of tractor
good luck i am also going through the same process myself :farmer:

a q plate        they cannot determine the age of the tractor    not enough original parts to qualify for that year of manufacture        numbers do not match           and the big one it is not worth as much  if it is being exported it does not matter            where do you think all the stolen plant and equipment cars and lorries go :farmer:

Can I suggest that you try the David Brown Tractor Club, it is a very good website and active tractor club. They do help with a V5 for a tractor. If there is no International Harvester club (shame), the link is that when David Brown was aquired by Case Tractors, production was closed in Huddersfield and shifted to Doncaster, the International Plant.

There is an International 3 furrow plough on e bay at the moment, it is only at £80. It will fetch double that amount in scrap. If I had an IH B414 then that plough is a must have. If only for show purposes. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and your tractor will receive some nice comments with that plough on it.  8)
