Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
I've owned 'Peggy' since 2011 and we've had many adventures together but sadly moving house means I've lost my garage space, so it's time for someone else to enjoy her. I've spent a lot of time and money improving and maintaining her, and I believe her to be among the best built and condition examples of the model. Weighing around 800kg and with a standard 110hp, not accounting for the modifications she feels very lively. Loud in both colour and volume, Pegs is a lot of fun! I’ve just put her through MOT with no advisories, so she’s ready for the summer.

Forgot to add a price! I'm looking for £2500.
Nice car. I think you might have a few more horsepower than you claim as the cam on its own is rated as +12bhp and the EFI was 104bhp initially, I think, plus there is the head work and exhaust.
I hope that your sale goes well.
If memory serves ( it rarely does these days) the carbed Pinto was 105bhp, the EFI was 115bhp and the Twinky was 125bhp.
Sorry, I was wrong about the EFI, it is down as 114bhp in my notes - I just didn't use them!
The original 2L Cortina Pinto engine was 98 bhp and when the Mk1 RS2000 was created it was the same engine but had 100 bhp - with the extra 2 bhp coming from fitting an electric fan. I remember that from the original road test (that I now have a copy of). There were a number of other carburettor variants, some more powerful and some less powerful (e.g. Transit), with the Mk2 RS2000 (105bhp) and the Sierra (103bhp) but I have seen 109bhp also mentioned for the later Mk2 RS2000.
So I still think you have under-claimed there Ed.
best of luck ....seems a very fair price.
Be sorry to see you Duttonless Ed, Make sure you introduce her new carer to us looneys :)
See it's up for sale on the eBay again.
Had a feeling that might happen. Don't really know why the chap was so coy about it, it was only at the end he asked to fill in the trader part of the V5. Good luck to him, I'm curious to see what it makes on auction.
