that it was registered by someone that lived abroad
and brought it in under the lighter rules that apply
when moving between countrys, it has exemption
"T71C Flyttsaksfordon" in the registration papers which
apparantly gives it exemptions against various
swedish rules. (Rules that forced a lot of cars to be
modified with non original parts that often had a bad fit, look etc.
I haven't been to inspection since I bought it but the previous
owner told me to make sure they know it's a "flyttsaksfordon"
should any concerns arise during inspection since there AFAIK are
rules that otherwise demand three point belts in the back seat from
early 70's, lap belt is allowed only in the non-existant middle seat so
that's not applicable to a camaro, three point belts are needed in
the front (does not need to be 'roll-up' model until '74 if i recall
correctly, and they probably need some kind of markings to
be approved at inspection (if they are checked at all) , the jungle of
rules can be searched on www.vv.se
search for VVFS (Vägverkets författningssamlingar)
or check with you local inspectors so you don't get rejected at inspection due to the belts.
Note: I'm not 100% sure about the correctness of the above but
that is as I interpretered it when browsing through the rules
concerning another old car some time ago, anyway it is good to know
these things ahead of time if it becomes an issue during an inspection
to be able to discuss it with the inspector.
