The rotten or damaged Vitara body is removed leaving a complete rolling chassis with front bulkhead, dashboard and seats all undisturbed. Apart from repositioning the battery it remains driveable throughout the conversion.
The new Arctic body and roll cage bolts onto the original chassis mountings making a very rigid structure. The front section pivots from the Vitara chassis bumper mountings. Full details of this straightforward conversion are provided in the Arctic assembly manual.
This simple conversion disposes of the rotten sills, rear floor, wheel arches and doors and results in a vehicle with a virtually rot proof solid body combined with superb, reliable running gear of the Vitara.
As well as offering off road style, capability and comfort, for everyday use the Arctic is a durable, safe and versatile vehicle, capable of carrying loads and doing the daily commute.
With cheap readily available spares, your Arctic will be a serviceable, reliable vehicle for many years come.
Registration of the Arctic is simple as it retains the original unmodified Vitara chassis and running gear therefore it is IVA exempt.
It is important that an appointment is made with the DVLA to arrange an inspection of your completed Arctic to ensure your chassis and engine number correspond to your Logbook. Following inspection, the DVLA will then change your vehicle identity, but you will retain your original registration plate and you will receive a new logbook from DVLA. The Arctic can then be taken for an MOT as normal.
Insurance is best obtained from a specialist broker for converted vehicles and often the Arctic will be less to insure than the donor. Over the years, NCF Motors has built up an excellent relationship with insurance companies and can therefore recommend contacting Adrian Flux Tel: 0800 505 3000
