Congressional Legislation Would Allow Hobbyists to Buy TurnKey Replica Cars

URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT
 

Congressional Legislation Would Allow Hobbyists to Buy Turn-Key Replica Cars

Legislation (H.R. 2675) has been introduced in the U.S. Congress that would allow companies to produce turn-key replicas for customers nationwide.  The bill would enable enthusiasts to purchase a completed replica car, while still providing the option of building a replica car from a kit.  Lawmakers will vote on H.R. 2675 if there is enough support for the bill in Congress. 

We Urge You To Contact Your Member Of Congress (contact information below) Immediately And Ask Them To Co-Sponsor H.R. 2675

  • Companies currently sell kit cars either as a box of auto parts or as a rolling chassis minus the drive-train components.  Generally, these kit cars resemble classic vehicles produced over 25 years ago.
     
  • H.R. 2675 would provide companies with the option of selling replica cars to consumers as completed vehicles, while still selling kits to enthusiasts who prefer to build the vehicles themselves.  Enthusiasts would also still have the ability to build specially constructed vehicles that don’t replicate older vehicles.
     
  • Many states have categories for these replica and kit cars, and allow them to be titled and registered by the model year that they most closely resemble (ex: ’32 Roadster, ’63 Cobra, etc.).
     
  • H.R. 2675 would remedy the current “one-size-fits-all” method for regulating car manufacturers and enable smaller companies to produce ready-to-drive replica cars for consumers that prefer that option.
