licensing imported car

I have an imported 67 camaro that I purchased from the eastern states.
I have the import papers , but was wondering if I can modify the car ( With engineering approval ) before I try and license the car here in Perth
Thanks

I have to rebuild it anyway as it has no engine or gearbox and the cars fully stripped
It's going onto a rotissery for a full rebuild

I bought mine like that.....and fully stripped and rebuilt it...in certain ways its the way to go......imagine buying a car for 30K and then having to do a full rebuild on it.So buying a roller is sometimes better

From personal experience in WA, if you can licence it easily then I would get it rego'd first and then do your re-build! otherwise you will get turned inside out for any mods you make to the car and will need an engineers approval for the lot.

BUT, if it doesn't have a motor or box getting it licensed may be a little difficult anyway so might not make that much of a difference

The only problem with this is your car will not be "legal" and you will either end up with a yellow sticker or even worse, find yourself in an accident and in a whole pile of ****e!

Its only an issue if your mods are not disclosed, I have just found it is an easier process to get mods approved on already rego'd vehicle than to go the big bang approach on a new build.

Ok just found this out. An imported car has to be regoed STD Than you do mods You cart rego a modified import in NSW. SO. That gets tricky if you have a modified import. I should add to this I'm talking about a first time rego after its regoed , you can mod it and get the modified car regoed year after year
