SEMA-MODEL STREET-ROD/REPLICA VEHICLE BILL ON THE MOVE IN IOWA

A version of SEMA-model legislation that would create a vehicle registration classification for street rods and replica vehicles was approved by the Iowa House Transportation Committee and will soon be brought to the floor of the House for a vote by all members. The bill defines a street rod as an altered vehicle manufactured before 1949 or a vehicle designed to resemble a vehicle manufactured before 1949.

The bill defines a replica vehicle as a reproduction of an originally manufactured vehicle with the substitution or addition of parts to update the vehicle for purposes of safety, performance or reliability. The measure also allows street rods and replica vehicles to be assigned a registration designation bearing the same model year that the body of the vehicle resembles.
