    Unfortunately it is registered as a Triumph GT6 in Red.
    Quite clearly it is a Marlin Roadster in Silver.
    You might get away with it if you never present the car for an MOT or get stopped by the police.
    However, the insurance companies are now getting wise to all this so if you were to have an accident and they want to wriggle out of paying money then they simply say that the reg docs are wrong, even though you have insured it as a Marlin Roadster.

    Do not bank on policemen not knowing about kit cars. Sat in my Locust one day a nice copper came up for a chat. He was a mine of info about kit cars, and so are a lot of police. So a red GT6 registered Marlin would be blindingly obvious on ANPR. Unless it has a Triumph chassis, then maybe a body change is possible?

    There is a lot of it about, Dutton Cobras for one,'50s Series 1 Landrovers with coil springs and V8s. On ebay there was a kit car advertised 'no reg no docs' they are going on another car! It came down the next day. Be sure your sins will find you out!
    Just thought, if the new owner gets the old reg can't he get it re-reged and someone has no reg and problems?
