Question Question about modified cars...

Is it legal to convert an old VW Beetle sedan to a convertible Buggy, in India ?



Thanks in advance for your answer...

its not legal in india unless and until you get it endorsed on your RC book which is issued by the RTO.
actually legally speaking even the change in paint has to be endorsed. but people tend to overlook it.

whats your plan?

I plan to import a fiberglass Buggy bodyshell to India and mount it on a VW Beetle chassis already registered in India.
How to proceed with RTO to drive a road legal Buggy based on the VW chassis ?
