I was just getting insurance quotes and was told that they have been seeing many FFRs come back as a "2018 Assembled Vehicle" rather than a 1965 Roadster. The agent also said that the insurance costs are significantly higher if it is registered as a modern assembled vehicle.
Also be aware that your local SOS office probably will have had very little experience with the process. So it's to your advantage to study and know the process thoroughly so that you have everything they need. I've found they were appreciative that I did my homework and had everything. Finally, be aware the process isn't completed at your local SOS office. They have little/no latitude in the process. Everything for assembled vehicles goes to Lansing and they complete the process.

It looks like you start with a TR-54 and and a scheduled inspection. The owner fills out the top of the form including the year. I'm assuming that if I put 1965 that they will disregard it?
This is the TR-54. https://www.michigan.gov/documents/TR-54_38480_7.pdf. You can enter 1965 if you want. But since it hasn't been previously titled and the Assembled Vehicle process assigns it the year it was titled, it won't mean anything. I don't think you're going to win this one. You say "scheduled inspection." It's not real formal. Any law enforcement officer can complete the form. Typically you would contact your local jurisdiction and they will send someone. In my case, it's the Oakland county sheriff. They have a couple guys in our local substation who are trained to complete the safety inspection, and they come right to the house. Usually within an hour or less of when I call. At least that's how it's worked for me. If you know a LEO, often they can arrange or do it themselves.
Approval letter 4/11/19
Meeting at my house to apply VIN 4/29/19
I would suggest calling if you haven't heard back two weeks after the approval letter. I did, and was provided with the cell # of the agent that it was given to. I called him, and he is stopping by tomorrow AM.
Michigan has some of the highest rates in the country. Recent regulatory changes by the state will hopefully lower the rates in the next year or two.
