Cheers,
Andy

Hi Dave!
Thanks for your message! You apparently owned many Duttons! I was wondering what you think about the Legerra?
Is this as fun as a Phaeton? Or does it feel heavier and seems more like a "normal" car? It's probably more comfortable?
I have experienced myself the comfort difference between the Phaeton S2 and S3. I'm myself rather tall and my S3 had a much more spacious cockpit. The S2 has such a narrow cockpit and is also much lower! My head is just touching the roll bar..

I am very pleased with it Dave, it has more than enough grunt to use on road in order to put a smile on my face. It is also very driveable right across the rev range using all five gears.

You are not alone I purchased my Leggy off Piston Heads as a rolling chassie and body, rear axle was tacked in with weld no springs  no engine, no gearbox, no loom, no seats or instruments. Still an ongoing project 4 years later but i ist now drivable on the drive way. Getting older does appear to have some thing to do with doing these stupid stunts.

Very good article Dave, Thank You. lol, I'll be thinking about the attempt to do it.

Hi Dave. I'm using a 1.8 silver top with twin choke carb running through a cross flow inlet manifold and adapt or plate. Although the legerra isn't up and running yet I'm taking the engine out of my old Rickmansworth ranger so I know it goes well. My aim is to focus on getting the car rebuilt this year and on the road, once that's done I might look at finding a 2.0 zetec and going bike carbs or possibly MX5, will see what's about nearer the time.

Not personally. We once had contact per email concerning another Dutton. I'm not yet involved with the Dutton community in Germany, since I bought the car last month (and yet had no time to work on it - it's a shame). But from what I saw, the most Dutton owners in Germany live in the northern part.

John, does it have to be an S1/2 Phaeton ?

At 17:33 on December 25, 2015, John Buckley said…
One running preferably
