    Hi John, thanks for that info, it's one more off my list !

    if you can look at the numbers/letters on the chassis plate you should get a date
    from it - and I'd like these numbers too please, as and when you get a moment.

    The kit was bought by an M Stent, who had planned to fit a 2L Pinto but due to ill
    health he sold the car incomplete to G Thorpe in Jan 2015 - the rest you know

    The only pics we have are the one from G Thorpe and the one you sent me, so when
    summer has arrived, please get your camera out

    Sorry my plate does not have the date numbers only the T4 - 056 number. As for the history of the car I have mots for the car up to 2011. as you say the car was originally built with a pinto and gary put the 2.8 v6 in that the car now has though this is in the process of being replaced with a jag aj30 motor. Will put some pics of this process on the site as well. (Any one interested in 2.8 on Carb with 5 speed box in good nick running nicely). Will send some Pics from sunny Northumberland.

    Hi Dave,
    I think you might already have my details, but here they are just in case.

    Marlin Cabrio - B773BFJ - T4 149 JGKR 9803 MWV8

    Collected the kit on 10th March 1998, passed SVA at the second attempt on 1st September 2003.
    I never tire of driving my Cabrio, it always puts a smile on my face and makes me feel 20yrs younger to boot!
    And I am sure i am not alone in that sentiment.

    All the best Mike

    Many thanks Mike, I didn't have the full numbers, and they're useful as
    the production timeline is now becoming clearer

    Glad to know you're still in love with the car !

    Dave,
    My car has T4 054 on the chassis plate. No other info.
    Reg is L462 ETT
    Can't advise on build date as I'm the 4th custodian, but the V5 claims registration in April 94.

    Jim
