MOT rule substantial change!

Hi everyone, I have a 1970 tourer that was converted from a two door saloon, does this count as a substantial change in relation to the new mot rule, I surely can't be the only one in this situation,
I service the car myself and had resolved to have it voluntarily mot'd every two years as a safety check !
Any thoughts and comment from other conversion owners would be welcome.[attachment=0]image

If it was converted before 1978 (I think) and the change was registered at the time then you should be OK.
There is this section in the guide

• changes of a type, that can be demonstrated to have been made when
vehicles of the type were in production or in general use (within ten years of
the end of production);

Here's the full guide.

I think the weasel word there is “demonstrated”. It’s not enough that the change was made before 1978, owner needs to prove it was. Bill of sale as a tourer or something like that.
