Pro-Hobby Street Rod and Custom Vehicle Bill Reintroduced in New York

By Washington, D.C., Staff

Legislation (A.B. 476) has been reintroduced in the New York Assembly to create a vehicle titling and registration classification for “street rods” and “custom vehicles.” This bill is based on SEMA-model legislation.

The legislation defines a street rod as an altered vehicle manufactured before '49 and a custom vehicle as an altered vehicle at least 25 years old and manufactured after '48. Under the bill, kit cars and replica vehicles will be assigned a certificate of title bearing the same model year designation as the production vehicle they most closely resemble.

A.B. 476 currently awaits consideration in the Assembly Transportation Committee.
