Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
Following the publication of Dutton Torque I received the following message:
"I have owned a Canterra (Registration NOT999R) for some time now. The story with this car started back in 2006 when I tried to buy it, but the then owner backed out of the deal, making some claims on various websites that he did like it to go to the Netherlands. Much to my surprise it ended up some 3 months later with a kit car trader in the south of the Netherlands asking a hefty 3750 euro for it.
Then in 2014, it suddenly appeared for sale all the way up north in the Netherlands. I didn't take long to seal the deal.
The Canterra is patiently awaiting its restoration as I finish of my beach buggy which I have owned for over 34 years. I would be interested in finding out any history of NOT999R and would appreciate if a notice could be put up in the DT or on Ning. The picture attached is of NOT999R, taken by Jeroen Booij of the Maximum Mini books fame.
Many thanks in advance. Hans Sipkema"
Nice to see such a rare car and what a story
it belonged to a gent from blackpool for a while but spent six months in one of my lockups as he couldnt keep that and his melos at home.
That is "pig ugly" to quote a local phrase. One for Graham to practice his chain saw skills with.
maybe thats the reason he only made 6...
i wonder if it would have worked better as a soft top...
See, you lot have no artistic licence !!!! Put a white Starsky and Hutch type stripe over it with a set of Woolfies shod with big General Grabbers ...... The Dogs Danglers :-))))))
Almost forgot the important part..... A nice Jag V12 under that very long bonnet.
the one that was in my lockup would have been 2004/2005 time but i was pretty sure it was a pinto . wasnt the screen from a mk4/5 cortina?
