I'm selling my 1939 Morgan to a German buyer - do I fill out the V5C as usual?

I'm about to sell my 1939 Morgan to someone in Germany. Are there any problems doing this? Will I have to fill out the V5C as usual? What about the number plate, which is original, can that go to Germany or has this got to stay in the UK?

You need to fill out section 11 of the V5C (notification of permanent export) and return that to DVLA - the new keeper gets the rest of the V5C as they will need that to register the car in Germany. The usual warnings about making sure funds have cleared before handing over the keys apply. There are lots of vehicles leaving the UK at the moment because of the current exchange rate.
