    i dont remember the name of the other kit-manufacturer...but looks like somebody built a kit using a Marlin V5c to bypass IVA.

    It is not a Vincent , looks more like a special one off with a little bit of Riley looks, but it may well have been built using a MK 1 Triumph based Marlin chassis and running gear. There are several period looking specials on the road built in that manner.

    Pual Moorhouse says on another forum it's a new one to him, likewise Tony Dwornic [Vincent MPH] has said it's also not from him. Did it sell?

    This has already been discussed at great length on the Marlin FB page. It's intended to look like a Vincent but could be based on a Marlin chassis. It's quite a nice car and quality looks reasonable.

    Another 5+ days of bidding on the auction but up to £3,500 already. Could be going for chunky money. It will be interesting to see if it ever turns up to a MOC meet at Stoneleigh. After all we've already had Morgan's show up...

    A friend sent me details of this car on "Car & Classic" website. I sent the details on to Dave Cunningham and he replied saying he had known about this car for a whil,e and it has reappeared. He had contacted "C&C" for the chassis number but he does not know where to ask them to look as the bulkhead has been altered. David.

    Hi all, having looked at photos in as much detail as possible I would guess this is a one off and it does not look like it’s on a marlin chassis.

    I emailed Car & Classic about the car and got this reply:
    Hi Chris,

    Thank you very much for your email.

    After further investigation, it would appear that this is not a 'Marlin' kit car. We have amended the auction listing accordingly and would like to thank you for being a valuable member of the Car & Classic community, and for bringing this to our attention.

    Kind Regards,

    Chris Kishtoo

    Amazing how some of these threads run !

    I believe the car was a "copy/homage" to a Riley Imp (1934?...Google it).... in the same way that the Vincent MPH was.

    It could well have started as a T based Roadster but it's not obvious !

    Yes Tony, this one :
