I suggest you visit the Jago forum & see what they have to suggest.

 

At worst, one of them might want to take it off your hands as a spares car.

Has your uncle in law not got space for a while . what exactly is the problem with getting it registered? Be a shame for you not to be the one to sort it after your efforts so far in bringing back from the edge of the bridge

Problem with getting it registered is when it was designed you just needed an MOT.

Now everything on it has to comply with current regs, which are very strict.

It is worth money to the right person, if you can find him.

But even then he will pay less than I offered for the axle.

I know of a totally knackered kit car in a field. It's on a Q plate, it has a V5...

I have known the owner for 20 years...

He is also on here...

Not that it is has anything to do so with your Jape obviously ...


Is it a Jago?

I hope this all works out for all concerned.

 

Just a singularly unhelpful thought, but isn't it odd how Escorts used to be taken apart to help make kit cars, and now it seems kit cars might get taken apart to help Escorts?

 

Sorry............

Amazing isn't it? Scrapyards were full of Mk2 escorts and Minis when the kits were sold, I think the chaps said the donor was bought for £50. Even the mankiest Mk2 would fetch 50x that these days surely.

I've read all this but I don't get it.

You've put in tons of work so far so why was it sold? Because you have to move it or that it's going to be do to register?

Would it be easier to register if you had imported it from France maybe........with no reg docs but a receipt from the farmer?

It is clearly not new so some means of achieving registration must be possible without IVA surely?

Just in the interests of closure - has the Geep now moved on pastures new with its fresh owner?

 

Because I'm a nosy glipe, was the project stymied as a road-going project due to IVA rules, or did life just happen and it needed to go?

 

None of my beeswax, I fully recognise, but I thoroughly enjoyed this ongoing thread and the Herculean efforts put in to make this little bathtub live again - all concerned should definitely accept some mighty pats on their collective back, regardless of the ultimate outcome.

Byebye little soljah! off to pastures new today (which seems to be official shite redistribution day judging by others posts!)

 

Byebye.jpg

 

It was rather reluctant to start, and we got almost to the point of giving up and pushing it onto the trailer, but it finally realised it was going to be going to a loving home and decided it would cooperate after all. Drove it up onto the trailer and it was stapped down for transportation to the abode of another shiter, who can reveal (or not) in due course.

 

The reason for sale was that I wasn't able to transport it anywhere myself due to having a post-97 licence, and the prospect of getting onto the queens highway legally was slim-to-none. My options were therefore:

 

1. Ring it and (knowing my luck) be the one person, ever, that the DVLA catch doing it and get sent to prison for a hundred years

2. use it for offroading, necessitating getting lessons, doing th test to get B+E entitlement on my licence, a trailer and a towbar, costing a minimum of £1200 I suspect. Then i have something I can use half a dozen times a year, when family duties allow, and which isn't really a very good tool for the job when I get there.

 

Option C was to pass it on to someone with more skills, knowledge and space to use it properly, and hopefully get it on the road legally, and put the £1200 I would have spent on option 2 towards buying something else thats a bit down-at-heel - but has been registered in the past - to work on at my leisure but with the prospect of being able to drive it on the road one day after securing an MOT.

 

I've got 2 kids, one who is 5 weeks old, so spanner time is very much limited by that currently - its not off the table forever, but now is probaby not the time to 'pop out to fettle the Geep for a couple of hours, dear'. Boring? Yes. Realistic? Yes, also. Any this time, that wins.

 

I enjoyed bringing it back from the brink and turning it into a functioning vehicle with the prospect of a future, albeit with a new custodian. I learned a lot along the way which hopefully can be put to use with the next project, whatever that turns out to be, and I've not ended up divorced or imprisoned (yet) as a result.

 

fin.

You’d done a good job on that, getting it running and driving again so in a way it’s served a purpose for you. Onwards and upwards, or something!?


So, who do we know with a Fronterra?
