It's the chassis that counts and that it remains unmodified. That's also the reason you don't need an IVA test. The DVLA regs identify it as the original car, despite the replacement body. Also the year of manufacture remains that of the donor car, not the rebody date, hence the exemptions. That's my understanding anyway, don't quote me !!
