  • Roadster for sale, spares or repair?

    One of our members in the East Midlands has a Roadster for sale. It is 1.3 Marina based and is currently in bits awaiting a rebuild. The registration is LUY 496 K, but it may still be registered as a Morris Marina, so the resulting rebuild would have to go through IVA, maybe, or used as a trials car perhaps? The chassis number may be 2415, but it's hard to read. The current owner has several projects in hand and has neither the time or space to continue with this one. If you have an interest in this, please contact the Membership Secretary who has the owner's contact details.

    It seems that the DVLA, have very limited knowledge from a simple search.
    This could be extremely problematical, and an IVA May be essential, in my view almost impossible for a Roadster designed decades before a an IVA was conceived.

    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
