Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
My facts are 100% correct as told to me
maybe I have been unlucky and come across a lot of liars and fantasists but heard the same "story" many times from multiple sellers
never mentioned anyone on here did I ,thou it is very easy to trace people once you have a ebay name or email address and link it in with other things
police have access but using the system for friends/personal use is a VERY big no no (you know data protection an all that) and can lead to very serious charges and prison time and since all they have is the dvla data and the club has access to that its all a bit pointless
I think people have a habit of exaggerating things if it suits them, especially ebay sellers :)
I have also found that people are more co-operative if your nice to them and to be fair if your dealing with someone who purchased a dodgy car in good faith then they are victims that need to be dealt with sympathetically.
Hi Rob, I would love to see some pictures of your cars, they sound very interesting, this is said purely from an interested engineers point of view and with no other agenda ( its terrible that something like that has to be stated) I wish we could all just get on with sharing our projects with each other.
Well said Paul
Leggy with black gel =scorchill not Dutton cars
some had Dutton numbers some didnt
will see if I can dig out some sierra pics from back in the day
at the moment they are at the back of a unit with 2 other cars and 4 unbuilt kits in front of them and one or two spares !
Pickup is fairly basic as the chassis rails taper in nicely so guy just copied the rear end an placed it further back where the tapers matched so on the join you have double width chassis
4x4 is basically 2 chassis on top of each other with the Dutton being on top
not really "interesting" engineering more good solid "blacksmith" engineering
Ahhhah ....... Blacksmith engineering is always good ;-)))
mine is a scorhill....a 1997 car....dutton chassis number and a really dodgy chassis mod. (done by the factory allegedly)
Mine has a Dutton chassis number and was registered in 1991. I'd suppose that mine was a Scorhill as my number is later than yours Dave. I am assuming that Scorhill numbered them in order as they sold them but that might not be the case, they might have been manufactured well in advance and numbered at that time and then sold out of order.
In "The A-Z of Kitcars" it says that when the range of cars were sold off to Scorhill and Eagle, then the Legerra, Beneto and Melos were kept by TDW under his Partex banner. So when did Scorhill get involved with Legerras?
