The idea behind me joining the club before buying a Dutton/project was to gain some knowledge and hopefully some good advice. I enjoyed my time with the Phaeton back in the 80s but always wanted the earlier cycle type wings and wished I take up that option when I bought the kit new. I'm now returning to this interest with little to no understanding of how rare my ideal Dutton is to track down, I'm just hoping someone can point me in the right direction before I make an impulse buy. If required I am very open to picking up a project and building the car to my specification.
Hi Adrian. Thanks for the welcome. My estate is complete and running (although it has just run out of MOT - waiting to see if I can get it mot exempt). I’ve owned it for around 9 years. The drophead is a project that I picked up late last year. It is complete but has stood for at least 25 years. It’s slowly coming together as time allows, I will try and add a build up thread for it at some point.
hi Adrian, will try to get some pics uploaded when i can, i was a member of this group a few years ago when i first picked up the Legerra but not had much to do with it lately due to work/wife commitments but i'm determined to get her rebuilt and on the road this year. I have just about all the parts i need, i think, the only obvious missing part at the moment is the Dashboard but then i'm not too keen on the standard one anyway so will probably make my own one. I'm also not keen on the hardtop either. the dimensions just seem wrong somehow so once shes on the road i might look at a redesign there too.
Hey! That'd be great. Damaged might not be the right word. It's more like corrupted on purpose? I attached you a couple of low quality pictures. The car came with a spare 7 nose, a pair of calmshell wings and two rear fenders, which were originally planned to replace the distorted parts. But I don't really want it to be a wannabe 7. Yet, it was planned to replace some parts by aluminium (like aluminium panels) and create some kind of individual design. But I'd be more happy to see that original Dutton face on her. Long story. To answer your question, it'd be especially front parts I'd be looking for.
