    Lovely SWB Roadster with Alfa engine for sale.

    Logic has prevailed over emotion, and I have decided to sell my Marina based Marlin SWB Roadster. Reg CPY301L it will be known to some members as a beautifully engineered car with a gorgeous Alfa 1962 Twin Cam engine with Ford gearbox. It has pretty much everything, and nothing is bodged. Superb rigid plexiglass sidescreens as well as deflectors and quarter lights. Tonneau, Hood and cover, luggage rack and towbar with electrics. Alloy fuel tank, rose jointed tie rods, uprated lights, uprated brake servo, heater. Correctly registered as a Marlin and recorded as historic vehicle, so zero tax and MOT free. Offered through this forum to MOC members before going 'public' for a sale.

    Superb little machine that I had the pleasure of owning . Sadly had to let it go when our present wee hound arrived on the scene and not enough room for three!

    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.
