Not come across this one before. I can't help comparing it with my own Mk1 though (no longer actually mine but you know the one), which is about the same age.

The kit was bought shortly before mine, put together and registered within a month, thus avoiding VAT and Car Tax which were both introduced that April. The local VLO must have been really on the ball, unlike Hertfordshire who took 3 months but at least gave me a nice registration number in compensation. The chassis number on the V5 isn't a Scamp one, which would have been in the low 200s (mine was 00238 IIRC): it seems to have been created - at a guess 73 from the year, 00729 from the receipt number, SYCC6 answers on a postcard please. If that "1 owner" is indeed true, the car beats mine by a year for the longest ownership.

Some interesting engineering there: I think the brake & clutch pedals have been shortened as recommended. The windscreen has been raised a few inches using Dexion, can't see if what's below it is structural or just a filler. That spare wheel carrier would have been a bit wobbly, and indeed seems to have broken loose at the base. Fuel pump at high level in the engine room = vapour lock problems on a sufficiently hot day! Speedwell wire-mesh air filter, just like the one that made parking in the rain such a problem for me. Is that the original engine? Pity the photo doesn't show the number.

Another Scamp from Shadeywheels same seller as recent 6 wheeler. Interesting to see how much this one will sell for.
