Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

I have a Dutton B Type fully registered, complete and a rolling chassis, modified for morris Minor front and rear axles.

it comes with a hood , windscreen and doors.

it is mostly dismantled and is in a rough condition, restorable but rough.

it need a good home, i have too much on my plate at the moment. any serious offers to rescue this car contact me...p.s. there is no engine or box with the car.......

i just dont have time.....i have my legerra in the wings and that is going to take at least a year...

claiming that fwd cars cannot be fun to drive is like claiming only the pinto engine in a car can be fun....

False wheel drive & fun - does not compute

I have just been out over the moors to source some Triumph front end parts for Daryl and myself. Pouring with rain, roads are flooded really bad. Great fun in the 300 BHP Saab with the traction control turned off. :-)

Panhard rod will be sussed out once the car is sitting on its wheels and leveled, about 3 years time then !!

Nice. Perhaps yellow drums?

back axle all sorted. new brackets, new gaskets and seals. Brakes will be attacked later. May add a little colour to brighten things up :-))

They sound to be interesting people ... in a good way!

the original owner is very............different! in a good way. Cross David Bellamy with Kenny Everett and your close. He had me in fits of laughter with his tales and his wife is barking too :-)  but all in the best possible taste :-). He is the mad professor from back to the future.

Hi Tony, he did achieve ! he drove this car over the alps and also a grand tour of Eire, all on a 948 moggy engine and box. Torsion bars were bolted to the side rails with a fabricated block. Now consigned to the spares bin. I did jump up and down on it when I got it home and it did work, once I removed the dampers. Now the dampers are free they are strange, my elder brother has hijacked them for his hot rod rear end. Strange people :-)

I've now unsiezed the friction? dampers, very strange things, they almost ratchet and rebound.
