  • Treiumph based, it's a new one to me

    Don't recognise this one, need to check further.

    Seen for sale on t'internet, located in Spain, rebuild looks well done.

    Not one that rings a bell with me, either. Unusual treatment of the fuel filler and rear lamp cluster.

      Just wish there was some way of changing the dyslexic title to this thread !

      The closest I found (so far) is this, ODP 385G, which supposedly went to Spain in 2013, and nothing noted since.

      The side spare is not quite in the same position, and of course the car has new wire wheels, rear lights, and I'm
      sure a load of other improvements too. Now noted as sold

      DVLA still has this car, last logbook 2010

        Same seller also has (had) this, looks like an older Spanish reg issue (not the newer H series)

        Looks very much as though it was Q129 BHH, last known for sale 1995, DVLA says last V5 1996

        I'm putting this up on here for general interest, there does not seem to have been many posts of late.

        Tell me if no-one else is interested and if I should stop posting this sort of thing

                Thanks Alan.

                Just for you here's another one with an unknown (to me) kit number, this time in Canada,
                variously in New Brunswick (2017) and Moncton (2019).

                      Re: Treiumph based, it's a new one to me

                      Is there the equivalent to our DVLA site in the European countries where you can at least see if they are still on the road?

                        Looks like all Spanish cars have to be red!

                          Adrian, dunno, possibly worth a look...one for your spare time perhaps ??????

                          Robin, I just chose to do red, there are plenty of other Roadsters I am still trying to
                          identify.

                            Below is a link to the DGT.ES site where you can get high level information on a car for free.

                              I don't think this will effect all the other posts though.
