(1) Any motor vehicle manufactured prior to the year 1949, or designed and manufactured to resemble such a vehicle and which has been certified as a street rod may be registered as a street rod under the provisions of this section. However, the provisions of this section shall not apply to any vehicle with a registered maximum gross weight over twenty-six thousand (26,000) pounds.
