Dunno if it's properly registered but if anyone's looking for a spare chassis....

It's deffinately not MK3.

If not scratch built it'll be based on a MK2 chassis.

Really??? Thought it was MK3 as the raked windscreen, door frame and the odd triangle shape formed by the windscreen bar between the door hinge and the wheel arch match to my GT3. Though it does seem to be missing some chassis members around the engine bay.

And potentially a 1275 A-Series+ as the interior looks to be MG Metro.....

No, deffinately not an MK3 of any guise. I'm 100% sure its a chopped MK2. Wink The layout of the rails in the floor are the give-away

Have to say it doesn't look like a mk2 chassis either.

Mk2's don't have the stepped up section where the rear radius arm pivot is.

Didn't think the mk2's had wooden trailing beam rear suspension !!!!!!!

Looks like one for Dave to work out.....

(Still waiting on insurance fiasco.....don't ask !!)

The stepped crossmember behind the engine is reminiscent of a Mk1...

I've got to be honest - looking at it as a whole I think it is a scratch built that has taken styling cues from Scamp and Gecko.

From the photos it looks reasonably well deisgned and built.

Could it be a Metro subframed Mk 3? The frame would certainly have to be wider to accomodate the Metro subframe,and If I am right,I think the very early Mk3's had a bit of Mk2 about them in the rear suspension area.I suppose the one to ask would be a certain Mr.McLean.
I've just had another look and it is a Metro Subframe in there,so that might be why it looks a bit unlike the normal Mk3.,who knows? Consult the oracle.
