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...

Hi Vern, this is the best one I have on the car:

Hi Steve, do you have any pictures of how the front suspension was set up?

Today I have been stripping the brackets off the diff and axle casing, think they were welded by "blind phew" plus they were all over the place, not in line odd size holes and not square to each other. Thought things were going to well.

Steve if you go A series get a late 1300 Morris marina /Ital they were the strongest a series made with screw on canister oil fitters virtually a Cooper s engine block and great to tune also the gearbox was triumph believe it or not so you could use the whole unit. Cheers Andy

The old gent who I got this car from, told me, and gave me the paperwork, that this back axle has been fully overhauled and only done maybe 60 miles ! so yes that may be reused.

Cortina and escort rears are a touch to wide so BMC would be the best option.

Go A series keep it original and unless you can find a ford anglia van rear axle stick with BMC. I would however revert to triumph front set up cheers Andy

1600 MX5 engine and box is a good unit. You'd probably need to go to a Ford back axle. Still think I'd stick with the BMC running gear just to be different.

I'm leaning heavily towards MX5, because I just happen to have a 1600 engine and box with the electrics stood in the garage and one on the drive.
