Replica Car Program Finalized: Everything You Need to Know

Recorded On: 02/10/2021

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has completed a rule that will allow low volume vehicle manufacturers to produce and sell replica cars—vehicles that appear to be at least 25 years old. Replica car manufacturers and suppliers have waited since 2015 for the program to start, when the U.S. Congress passed legislation to establish it. Until then, NHTSA only had a one-size-fits-all regulatory framework intended for companies that mass-produce millions of cars. A panel of industry experts will provide an overview of the new program and practical considerations for selling replica cars, engine packages, or vehicle parts.
