Dutton Phaeton

First kit car I built in the 1970's. Ford crossflow 1600 engine and transmission - fun but leaked like a sieve!

These photos date from about 1980

Rear view - note the quarter turn Dzus clips that kept the boot shut - no locks!

In fact no locks to be seen anywhere!

TVR Vixen S2

Bought this in 1977 - loved it but cost a fortune to keep running. Had a Lotus Twin Cam engine in it for a while, but it kept smashing back axles!

Please excuse the quality of the photos - in those days textured prints were all the rage.
