You guys have me thinking...

I bought my Manx already registered special construction, with plates and clean title etc. It's registered as a 1963 special construction, the year of the VW floorpan. It had a VW Engine installed, no clue if the engine serial is on the title- I'd have to double check when I get home. I've since torn out just about all the running gear to install a Honda V6. Do I have to go back to CHP to have them change the title to match the new motor? I wasn't planning on it... I figure since it's been through the process and already been placed in the DMV system I'm free to do whatever.

No, the drivetrain VIN number physically appears on the engine and transmission case somewhere, that's the only number they care about. Also, I'm pretty sure that the whole VIN tag thing didn't start until later, so if you have an actual 1960's drivetrain, there's probably nothing on it, so don't worry about it in that case.

It needs to be trailerable. The procedure now (well, 2014) is VIN first, then SB100 certificate. To get a VIN, you need to have a chassis that the CHP can attach it to.

This is a change from the early years when you could get an SB100 certificate with nothing.
