  • Under current New York law, a historical motor vehicle is either a vehicle manufactured more than 25 years ago or one which has unique characteristics and which is determined to be of historical, classic, or exhibition value.

Overview: A.B. 152, which is a version of SEMA model legislation, would create a vehicle registration classification for street rods and replica custom vehicles and provide for special license plates for these vehicles and was reintroduced in the New Jersey Assembly for 2018.  A.B. 152 defines a street rod as an altered vehicle manufactured before 1948 and a custom as an altered vehicle at least 25 years old and manufactured after 1948.  The bill allows kit cars and replica vehicles to be assigned a certificate of title bearing the same model year designation the body of the vehicle most closely resembles.
