Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
Spanners one is about, owned by the brother of another Sierra owner, who's name I have forgot at present. I did try to buy it from him as he has not touched it, but negotiations broke down about a year back. Will try to contact him.
I think the spanners one was a genuine pick up not a chassis cab. Thats the blue one he got for nothing.
Anthony Godden (on here) has a blue pickup or his did when we went to the Exeter Kitcar show back in 2013 (ah the good old days).
According to "the A-Z of Kitcars" there were only 7 pickups made and 50 Sierra dropheads. It didn't mention the chassis-cab version but there is a photo of a Sierra based campervan which looks like it might be based on a chassis-cab.
Beneto's there were 12. There was an unregistered (red?) one on ebay a year or so ago. One of the club committee had a blue one - was that Nick Chick?
I dare say the numbers are for kits sold, not cars registered, and some sound rather like estimates.
Hey, Steve Kerswell - get the angle grinder out and turn your Sierra estate into a pick-up, you've got a buyer!
if i was to build another car i think it will be a pick up.....had one before.....unfortunately they tend to be very useful for all your family as well.
Thank you James, I will put yet another idea in the raffle hat. Soon will have to shake it about and pick the result :-)
Anthony's pick up was a chopped down estate. If I went that way it would have to be stepside I think.
Sadly, the red Beneto wasn't registered, got sold to an escort breaker near Glasgow, stripped and then offered to the club for more than he paid for the complete car. I didn't have the funds or storage back then so couldn't recover it. As far as I know it was destroyed.
Nick Chick has one, Mark Young has another. Very few actually exist on the club records and I think those two could be the last registered ones.
That has been sorted, carbon fibre plates and epoxy glue. Good to have friends :-)
