I meant a test other than MOT, or will it indeed need just such a test?

As far as I'm aware, if kept within the rules then it shouldn't require full BIVA testing, but may need to be inspected and it's best to build to BIVA standards just in case.
Remember NO alterations to the chassis. Best to keep as much of the driveline, suspension, steering and brakes, as standard as possible. Obviously no sharp edges etc, and you need to keep to, or exceed standards that were applicable when the vehicle was originally made, on items such as seat belts, glass and lighting.
Steering and brakes are areas on older vehicles, where the 8 point rule and BIVA can come into conflict. To keep them as originally built, means that building to BIVA standards is impossible, but that shouldn't affect anything originally made from the 70's on.

Getting older but no wiser! Just using bigger hammers.
The answer to most problems, fire and lots of it.

As Olds said..it's going to need some sort of test..unless it was simply left registered as original ? But those days are coming to an end? Shocked

Ok thanks for the explanation appreciated i am largely in the dark and certainly negative in attitude when it comes to these Tests, i really should get my act together and do the research on what is what! at least then my ignorance on such matters wont be as obvious.

yep, could well need an inspection by sgs if dvla are anyway unhappy, (only sending the minimuim required, photo's etc)
once documents are all updated it will then need an MOT.

I have downloaded the IVA book and saved the detail pages off the GOV site, and plan to inwardly digest it, it looks to be changing in september this year.
  My Devon will be stock chassis and body and i think i need to do more research before i decide on the mechanicals  to avoid complications.
