Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
My mate and the cars we bought BT 136 and BT 137 both blue in the yard outside Dutton's factory, early days

and is that extra bracing on the roll bar?
interesting to see the Dutton factory fitted the ally side panels to the car before delivery.
i do like the early Duttons and the Btype is a nicely proportioned car. a little narrower than the B+ and its variants (3" overall i think) and shorter as well by another 3" (mostly in the boot area) although i believe the wheel base is also shorter.
there were only a few hundred made and a good few of them are abroad now (or the log books are) they do still come up for sale. and if i had room i would get one. probably fit it with a suzuki swift 1300 and RWD SJ410 gearbox......
I know..... i was saying someone argued with me.....and told me i was an idiot to claim a chassis number for the Btype started with BT....it was interesting to have an original buyer of the Btype to post the chassis number.
i knew i was right....but i was then said to be a pretend know it all about Duttons. turns out i was right and there is photographic proof.......the point i was ineptly trying to make.........(on this very forum as well....!)
All B Types are centre punched with their chassis number STARTING BT in the same place on the chassis , I have BT 035 so whoever thinks they were not stamped BT is a complete ----- Dave , I have also identified several B Types for their owners ,all have been marked BT
I know someone who will give you a very good argument about B type chassis numbers......told me i was an idiot to insist they started with BT......
Tried searching BT136 on this site - Result! TJU 381N still around in 2015.
John, do you know the registration of his car? I will check our records to see if I have any info.
