Many years ago - when the Spartan was built, the rules were much less rigid and it wasn't always necessary to change the log book.
However, times have changed and it can now cause problems. But, I believe, if you have some documentary evidence showing it is a Spartan (like old MOT's with the correct number plate and Spartan on them) you can get the V5 changed. I guess it won't be easy or hassle free though.....
