Hi All,Im newish to the site(had to re register ,but didnt post much previously)....... Anyways,Im looking for a new toy to play with,and was thinking maybe a scamp,but TBH I dont really know what I want! Have built/owned lots of cars and kit cars over the years so maintenance isnt an issue,TBH I am becoming less inclined to work on stuff anymore,just drive them!Ive been looking at various scamp models,and a bit confused as to whats what,and prices seem to vary,hence me coming back here! Whatever I get I will put my mark on it in some way!

Model types? Empty Scamps

Post  red_leader on Tue Aug 21, 2012 9:54 pm

Normally Mk2 Scamps are the cheapest due to a quite a few were made and still survive but they are the least good looking.

Mk1 Scamps are the oldest and most traditional. There are relatively few tidy Mk1s. So they are more expensive than a Mk2.

Mk3 Scamps are the most recent and look Ok, are more practical than a Mk1.

What you buy will depend on how you plan to use it and what for.
For every day use a Mk3 would be good.
For the classic look chose a Mk1.
A Mk2 would be cheapest but most adaptable to be modified to be as you want.

Good luck
Chris

As above.

The main thing you have to look out for, whichever model you go for, is that they are correctly registered.

The V5 must have Scamp or "made from parts" , history is another thing, past Mot's etc.

There are a lot of Scamps out there with still the original donor car details, ie Austin Mini 1000 or similar.

Good luck in your search.

So MK3's ,although 'later' are tax exempt? I agree about the MK2 looks. Very practical, but not exactly something that I can convince SWMBO that we need,unless its reasonably cheap! Whereas a mk3 looks ok.I saw a mk1 scamp at Detling a few years ago,looked good done army style. As for use,I dont do many miles at all nowadays,and in fact havent had a car for about a year (first time carless in over 40 years!)so looking for something to use that is practical/fun/easy to maintain (I was brought up on a-series engines,even though they were in-line in A35's and A40's!)

Please stop the MK2 bashing! They're my favourite Scamp shape and give lots of scope for modding/personalising Laughing

Being tax exempt depends on the age of the donor vehicle. Under the old rules it was possible to keep the registration of the donor vehicle and just amend the manufacturer & chassis details. Hence my MK2 built in 1996 is tax exempt as the donor was a 1972 mini van.

And don't forget the infamous Pea, Q or Hop. Along with John Shelley's and yours Chris i think they take some beating in the MK2 stable.

Now I thought it was fag packet and box of matches!!

I realised the aerodynamic design of my Mk2 when I put a pair of Winguard wing mirrors on the front end of the frame and when you worked the windscreen washers(which were some 2 feet behind them)the mirrors got washed as well.................I think that's what they call vortex.
