Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

Bert's blog.

This is how my Dutton started his Dutch life. As you can see the British license plate is still on. Based on my research the Dutton moved from the UK to Holland in the summer of 2012. Does anyone recognise the car and may be knows the UK - history. The donor car was  Ford Escort Mk II from 1978, also based on my…

Hello Dutton owners!

Here I am, also a Dutton owner!

Since a few weeks a Dutton owner. I started to look for a Donkervoort, Westfield, MK Indy but after a look at my motorbikes and Bank account I decided to start "low profile", in fact low budget.  

And I bought a Dutton Pheaton S3, 1978, with Honda CBR 1000 engine.

Nice configuration but I have to spend some time on it to get it on my quality level.

So I will.

Autotest, one year on.


Been out playing again today. This is significant because it's almost exactly one year since we wheeled the Phaeton out for its first Autotest. You may remember, or even refresh yourselves by revisiting my old blog post, that both Steve and I were truly shocking that day, and various things went wrong with the car. We were last and second-last by a long bloody way on the 2015 SDMC July Autotest.

Fast-forward one year.

Other than…

Upgrades, mods, jobs and stuff.

Hi all,

We've kinda hit quiet time of the year for Autotesting as clubs get stuck into organising rallies and things like that instead, so I've revisited a few of the things I'd like to develop on the Phaeton.

1. Double width triple ARB kit - Bought ages ago but not fitted. You may remember I had to scrounge some bushes from a guy to do an event as I noticed the bushes were stuffed the day before, and he only had double width ones. So I had to fit these in…

I have a complete front window screen from a B+ I broke up a few years ago [chassis rotten] it is complete with frame, glass. hockey stick side brackets and the thin top fame that I assume holds the roof to the frame. Free to take away or in a weeks time its off to the skip. Also have both full length front wings which are in ok condition which are also free or off to the skip.

Sorry folks the curse of the Phaeton has jiggered the weather!

So I get my S3 MOT'd and taxed again this week and just after I get back from the garage the summer descends in to permanent monsoon (certainly near Kendal it has !)

Been a bit of a mission as our last adventure (Rose & Thistle road rally last August) ended on a transporter with a suspected cracked alloy sump covered in oil and further frustration that the steering kept weighting up on the twisty bits. 

Have to admit I shut the garage door on it and got my tinkering…

having problems with my speedo again. dugh. bought a new cable fitted it. had wrong sized screw cap on the back. so made a clip to hold it in. it worked for a couple of miles then died. so to cut a long story short. the cable that snapped had a bigger square drive on the end. so the new one is just spinning in the back of the clock. the speedo is a icknield. so what can i do now. i thought all speedo cables had the same sized square drive.....argh :-(
