    Vincent...thats the Kit i was thinking when watching the rear of the car. the rest looks individually made.

    IMO its a modified vincent-kit or a complete homebrew, using a triumph (herald/vitesse?) chassis.

    by the way: the car is NOT registered as marlin!!!

    IDM.Re, open gearbox. Not in a marlin, but in an MG PA. You need a rubber gasket all round and around the bell housing or water pours in. Most Roasters have gear lever extensions, which could be tricky. The gearbox does look good polished though.
    Could be an expensive bag of problems? Tyres 700x14 6Ply Firm ride!

    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 :

    I seem to recall that the blurb with the photos referred to it being based on a 30's Alfa --- I recall it was quite a high priced piece!!
