NAPIER CAR CHASSIS NUMBERS & MOT TESTING The newer style computerised MOT test requires clear sight of a VIN or in our case chassis number visible on the car. Napier Cars hardly ever have a chassis number visible Of even stamped on the car if the original chassis plate has over the years been lost, some cars are lucky enough to still have their original a chassis plate which solves the problem. If any car owner has this problem arise it can be dealt with in several ways. One could have a small chassis plate made with the chassis number on it and lightly affix to the car. The other alternative is for DRG as Napier Car Registrar to supply a certificate quoting the engine and gearbox number (which is usually easily visible) and the chassis number of that car and a copy of the delivery record, which would normally be accepted by the DVLA. Should one wish to make a replica of Napier chassis plate DRG can supply a suitable template of both the S F Edge and the later from mid 1912 D. Napier plate.
