But if you've used the engine, gearbox, transfer box and both axles (including suspension) that's enough points isn't it?

 

No.

Although the Department for Transport letter above is interesting & certainly implies that different rules can apply to certain vehicles.

Anyone else fancy assisting the recovery of the Jago to my house this Saturday (9th December)? Tea, Coffee, Biscuits and pub lunch on offer for any willing volunteers. Plan to meet around midday and have it back by 3pm if possible.

 

PM me for details.

I'm late to the party here, but I have built a few* Kit Cars.

Looks in good order to me, not too difficult to fix.

Needs soft or hardtop to be sensible = expense.

Not reg = hassle and expense.

There are many scrap available, some with documents.

 

Please bear me in mind if you decide to break it.

Am distant from you I think, but can offer £150 for the rear axle complete if it could find its way towards Manchester.

 For higher price there may be a tag on the diff nut with ratio on, could make it worth more to me.

If no tag you could take the diff out and count the teeth.

I've got a pair of trolley jacks, hammers, screwdrivers and whatnot, foot pumps, a spare battery on charge, a can of pez, carb cleaner, towrope, socket sets including long bars.

 

What else might we need?

Sounds about it I think.

I've got a big 3 ton trolley jack, fully charged spare battery, jump set with electric tyre inflator. If you want me to bring anything? Sounds like you've got it all already though!

Just thought, if you have spare points, or condensor that are to hand could you bring them along Dan? I'll be over the moon if we can get it to run.

I've got at least one set of points and condenser for this engine in my toolbox. It's old but I know it works. Came off a mk2 Cortina 1600E. Which is the same lump as your one.

 

I'll bring you that gasket set too, I bought it for my Pinto, opened it up without checking it was right first and found it was actually not for a Pinto! Too late to return it so you can have it.

      Yesterday I was in hospital having surgery on my ankle so rather than rest like the surgeon said I have arranged to go and collect my new car.
      I have been awake all night in pain so what could possibly go wrong! Luckily it's only a couple of hours round trip so I reckon I can do it, if I get really tired on the way back the accommodation in my new car is positively palatial and I can rest up on the heated rear seats.
      Can't wait!

      A strange day yesterday where both me and Mrs Cheeze both bought cars. She is getting a 65 plate Civic which she says she will keep for 10 years - hopefully.
       
      I got a Jaguar XJ6 4.0 Sovereign for significantly less than the cost of her Civic. I'd been keeping an eye on it on Gumtree the last month and the price had been creeping down and I managed to get it a bit cheaper still. With a bit of googling it appears it went through the Morris Leslie classic auction in August. I paid a bit less than it went through there at.
       
      Surprisingly Mrs Cheeze likes it and my Dad loves it. There is some rust on the roof and a giffer repair on one of the arches but it seems solid. Scabby bits here and there but nothing terminal. It has done 59,000 miles and only seems to have done a couple of thousand in the last few years.
       
      It drives nicely but doesn't change up as soon as it should I feel. It isn't going into third until 30mph and fourth isn't until about 75mph. You can induce it to change up by booting it and backing off but thats not ideal. I need to check the fluid level. If it is still doing it after that I'll get a gearbox service done on it.
       
      It is surprisingly small inside. I went to pick up my big mate last night in it and even with the passenger seat right back he was struggling. He managed once I had reclined it a bit.
       
      Some pictures. The pictures flatter it.

      So at least a bunch of you will recognise my much hacked about Invacar (AC Model 70 actually to be technically correct), KPL139P from my blog thread.
       
      With the arrival of Dollywobbler's former spares car the decision was made to return that to the road rather than KPL as it was in far better overall condition.
       
      So since then she has donated her engine, brakes and gearbox to TPA.
       
      It seems a shame to just throw away the leftovers though. Given the repeated comments we've both had from people saying we should stick a silly bike engine or something in it, there seems to be interest in some madcap projects.
       
      I reckon with a roof chop, custom front end built and a suitably mad engine you could make a truly epic 2/3rd scale replica hot rod with it. I however have neither the time nor resources.
       
      The chassis will need a couple of repairs due to water having got trapped beneath the floor, but is overall sound. Sound and utterly over-engineered for what it is.
       
      She already has a V5C present and in my name, so just needs a (Class III) MOT to allow you to change the vehicle type to motor tricycle and tax class to historic.
       
      I need the garage space back, so if anyone wants to take this on as a crazy project, it's all yours.
       
      It has tyres that are holding air sufficiently that it can roll for loading purposes just fine.
       

       

       
      A pair of somewhat dodgy doors can be had if required, I just need to swap some bits over before I'm done with them. Rear windscreen is missing, windscreen is present and serviceable, and I have good door glass available if you want it.
       
      If you're thinking ditching the body, sticking a roll cage on and making a crazy off-road buggy that might be immaterial...plenty of suspension travel and compliant springs...that could work actually...
       
      If you're interested, let me know.
       
      Really not looking for anything for it, but if you'd like to contribute towards the camper and Invacar restoration fund anything will be appreciated.
       
      I'd rather have it out the way sooner than later to be honest, but if you're interested but cannot get it picked up until a given date I'm sure we can arrange something.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone
