Wow, a decade in storage? Good Gawd Man, how'd you do'd it!? :elder:

I think I only managed 2 years, but I worked on it during that time. Well, happy to see another Cobra back on the road! Keep us posted!! O0O0

I couldn’t get it registered in Va until they finally changed the process and included kits and replica it wouldn’t pass emissions
I was in a similar situation back in 2008, it took DMV 3 months to process my title and they still had it wrong. But the lady on the receiver in Richmond worked with me and pushed my papers through. 2 weeks later I was legal.

I think the replica law indicates that the vehicle must meet the emissions requirements of the year the vehicle replicates. Thus,1965. All that is required is the annual safety inspection. I have a long way to go before I can have antique tags on an antique that replicates an antique. o_O

In transitioning from Virginia to Maryland titles was actually a breeze. When I titled my car it was stated as 1965 Ford 2-Dr Roadster In Va., then stated in Maryland as 1965 Factory Five 2-Dr.
When I was in Virginia I had standardized plates and only required an inspection sticker.
In Maryland it’s classed as a Street Rod, no inspections required.

Ha but about ten years ago the rules for tags quite different and Virginia decided to re-title my car on their own I couldn’t get it inpected because of the emissions they changed it from a original cobra that was titled 1965 to a mustang built in 2003 when I bought it
