    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.

    I have spoken to the seller, he confirms that the car is a LWB, and as soon as I get pictures from him I will upload them - I forgot to ask what the V5 says .................................DOH

    If it hasn't been SORNed historically it doesn't need to be.

    My car rested in my garage for a few years.
    I didn’t SORN it, and never got any reminders.
    After I did all the necessary mechanics and got it MOT’d, my local post office said I would have to go to local DVLA office.
    At first Tax was refused because they wanted me to pay the several years back tax, as I had allegedly failed to pay the past few years.
    Some 30 mins discussion later, luckily I had all the necessary documentation with me, I walked out with a new tax disc.
    I beleive it helped enourmously to have the full paperwork.

    But, what if the previous owner had not SORN, surely they would have to prove the vehicle was ‘off the rosd’ Not the buyer?

    My Locust had not been taxed before Sorn so it was not sorned. I taxed it in our PO no problem. My S1 Landrover was laid up before sorn and taxed on line no problem.

    Looks like it's got the KN Diamond wheels I've been searching for since I bought Brum!

    For sale, posted by DC on request from Jim Carter, please note SGs comments at #6 above :

    For Sale Marlin LWB Roadster Light Metallic Blue NOK 970R

    A one owner/builder car, it is located at Corlton, near Rugeley, Staffs

    This Roadster was built from a 1.8TC Marina donor and has been dry stored for many years in a heated garage.

    The V5 is in my name and correct as a Marlin Roadster.

    The car has never been SORN’d and the DVLA lists it as untaxed since 1992

    I will need notice of viewings as I need to shift a lot of boxes to enable me to get the car out of the garage, which is why you only see the “historic” pictures.

    The general condition is good, it has a Double Duck hood and has been covered with a dust sheet all these years – but I guess it will need a thorough checkover, new fluids, etc.

    I would be happy to haggle at around £1500 Contact Jim Carter tel 01889 575990

    Two more old pics have surfaced :
