This is interesting, a left hand drive Jowett Javelin. 

I wonder where this might have started out its life?

Bradford ?

Sorry, 75% of Javelins and Jupiter’s went for export, a lot would have been to Australia , New Zealand, South Africa etc, but some did go to Canada and a few to the US. It does seem an odd thing for someone to repatriate though, the value would never cover the cost, maybe it came in a container with a couple of E-Types or something.

A mate of mine bought a Hippo here in the UK and drove it full of stuff and A framing a Hilux to Portugal. The French Police stopped him from using the Peage saying he was a danger to other motorway users coz it only did about 35.  The Spanish weren't too happy about the A frame so wouldn't let him go until he left the Hilux. Took him about two weeks all in.

3 wheelers seem to be some peoples cup of tea, so how about a Zhenhua Ztr 250 ? It's  "uk road registered as a trike so can be ridden on a car licence"

It's only 250cc but has a rear tyre that  looks like it came off a drag bike.  MoT expired May 2019, and sold as spares or repair

As a taster.....

I've got a 250cc twist and go scooter that goes nicely, but can't imagine how this is going to cope with all that bodywork weight

I went shopping every week where that was built growing up!

They used to have pictures of the assembly lines and production facilities as well in the Morrisons thats on the factory site now.

This appears to be a really good* idea.

Five bags, sounds like the seller bought it, drove it, then shat his Grundies. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AUTOGRASS-CLASS-7-RACE-CAR/224364815062?hash=item343d2f62d6:g:ICcAAOSwjyRgMBMT
