Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
Hi All - Though new to blogging, I'm not new to the DOC and have been a member (off & on) for the last 14 years, while I've been to proud owner of a lovely orange (red?) Melos 1.3
Sadly, it's now up for sale as I no longer have the motivation to drive it and want to sell it to an aficionado who has.
It was meticulously built by a retired engineer in 1987, with full instrumentation and a superb interior. I've done 6000 miles in it since 2004, and it has been maintained by a professional mechanic.
We replaced the engine (oil leaks) in 2014 and the gearbox (noisy) in 2018. It comes with 2 spare gearboxes (!) and full wet weather gear, bought new and fitted by myself but little used.
Over the years I have replaced the battery, starter, alternator, radiator, brakes, etc to keep it in good condition and it has always been super-reliable. For most of its life it has been used at least every month, and has been to Stoneleigh numerous times.
It has been SORN'd since July 2017 but always starts and runs easily. I reckon all it will need for its MOT will be adjustment of the brakes.
Examples like this rarely come to market, so get in touch quickly if you're interested. I live a few miles from Lincoln.
Price? - It's always hard to value cars like this, but I'm hoping for offers over £2500 - it's a lot of fun for the money!
I'm unable to upload any photos to the blog, so please e-mail me and I can send you some. Or come and see it....!
