twin engined scamp mk1

Post  dylan on Fri Aug 26, 2011 7:20 am

hello all,

I am Dylan Doek en life in Holland.
I bought the Twin engined mk1 off e-bay.
We just got back from collecting the Scamp and made a holiday in Scotland en Engeland.
It was very nice, a bit wet Smile

I have a few questions about the Scamp:

-were can i find the chassis number.
-i like to have some detailed photos from the mountings of the windscreen. it seems there is something missing.
-does anyone know who started this built?


I have both engines running already, and made the first test drive.
It's a lot of fun driving the Scamp.

Hi Dylan, welcome aboard!

To try and answer your questions:

The chassis number could be anywhere - there's no standard place on Mk1s, it was up to the builder where it went. It might even be missing, especially if was originally fixed with aluminium pop-rivets. In which case you will need to get hold of a piece of aluminium, and some number punches, and make up a new one.

This picture (sorry, haven't got a better one to hand) may give you an idea how the windscreen is fitted: a simple frame made of steel angle, a pair of brackets at the bottom and a pair of bracing bars at the back. Originally the glass was held in with lengths of aluminium angle and U-section rubber extrusion, nowadays it's easier just to glue it in with windscreen sealant.

I'll try to get back with some more information after the weekend.

Hi Dylan,

Welcome to the forum.

So you have just got back from Airdree in Scotland........

How are Joe and Claire ?

I saw the Scamp at the IMM in Birmingham and thought it was a nice bit of kit.

Lots of nice touches, somebody has put a lot of time and effort in the way it has been modified.

Glad to hear you got the engines running, look forward to seeing pictures of the car on the road.

Or for a more professional look, one of these......

[quote]-i like to have some detailed photos from the mountings of the windscreen. it seems there is something missing.
-does anyone know who started this built?

Bob Lilley has taken some pictures of my Mk1 windscreen fittings and will be posting them on here soon,the builder is unknown,but when we saw this for sale at the IMM in Birmingham in 2009 we were told that it was a project by someone who worked at the McLaren factory,and seeing some of the levers and pivots that have been made I can quite believe it,we were also told It has 2 x 850 engines,and it was sold to a chap in Glasgow.
Keep in touch though,it would be great to see it on the road.

Just read this and thought of Fred Howard's twinny, do they have different rules in Holland on cars with two engines cos I am sure Fred could not get insurance for his so he had to trailer it to events?

At last, some pictures! If you can print them with suitable size and spacing, you should be able to view them as stereo pairs.
