    All I can tell you is that it a Hybrid (Triumph front and Marina rear) Roadster kit
    which left the factory in January 1984

    You can download the build manuals for both Triumph and Marina based Roadsters from this site

    From the pictures it looks to be a complete kit.

    Supposedly the kit was made to accept a Triumph 6 cylinder engine etc.

    Personally I'm no expert on Triumph engines/boxes and do not know if the
    engine mountings may differ from one engine to the next

    I would hope that someone will be along soon to answer your questions

    Good luck with the build! I am in the process of starting a (re) build of my third Marlin. They are great cars.
    Are you aware that, if the car is not already registered as a Marlin, it will have to go through the government IVA test? If so, the IVA manual must be your bible....

    Cheers, Robin

    The hybrid kit normally takes either the six or four cylinder engines from the small chassis Triumphs ie Vitesse/GT6 or Spitfire/Herald using the same factory engine mount. Other engines will probably fit. The rear axle and springs would be from a Marina/Ital.
    Ben Caswell probably not the last word on anything here!!
