This is mainly for safety reasons as the Impact
Assessment shows that vehicles first registered between 1978 and
1987 (broadly 30-40 years old when the regulatory changes need to
be made) fail 33.7% of MOT tests. For vehicles registered between
1960 and 1977 the failure rate is 25.3% and for pre-1960 vehicles is
14.8%. There are also approximately twice as many vehicles in the
1978-87 age group involved in personal injury road accidents
compared with 1960-1977 vehicles.

I fear that they are trying to outlaw the modified car though, but if they pass an MOT then there should be no problem.
