Very nice :thumbsup: Ref the year , your car is 1977 , as production of the 20 series car ran until the end of August 1977 , then the 40 series cars began being made.

My car was built  in August 1977 , but not registered until April 1978 , and i always say its a 77.

You may already know this, but just incase you don't ,  but as your car would of been built during August 1977 at the very latest .  its now 40 years old and you can apply for the taxation class to be changed from plg to historic , and therefore not having to pay road tax as of 1st April 2018

There seems to be a bit of an issue with cars built in 77 and registered in 78 , but with a date of build certificate , it should be ok

The certificate can be got from Harvey at toyotaenthusiasts.com , who are recognised by the DVLA

II have my build date certificate and will be applying for mine when I renew my tax at the end of this month

Thanks for that, sounds good. 


Although isn't the tax for these cars really low anyway? I'm just presuming of course as I don't actually know, mine is SORN at the moment. 


What is is it normally?
