As I understand it, if you can prove that it was manufactured before April 1st then it's tax exempt, alternatively wait until next year and there is no question.

According to the DVLA web site ( https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-exempt-from-vehicle-tax ) at the moment:

"Vehicles made before 1 January 1978 are exempt from 1 April 2018."

Unless anything changes between now and then, on 1st April 2019 I would expect that would change to

"Vehicles made before 1 January 1979 are exempt from 1 April 2019."

So as I read it, the only way your April '79 vehicle will become VED exempt this year will be if you can prove it was manufactured before 1 January '79, not 1 April '79. And if the change in date means that your vehicle should have an earlier registration suffix, the DVLA may choose to give you a replacement registration to match the manufacture date.
