1988 Dutton Phaeton III (Axel Folly ( The Crazy Frog))
Last updated Jun 5, 2008
I bought this in August 2005 off eBay. And still don't refret it. Current minor problems. I have to bleed the brakes once a week. Tacho has gone on strike. Problems with the gear change, I think this might be because the gear lever has snapped off and I'm using the wrong type of box spanner as a gear lever. Needs a new wiring loom as the electrics are, shall I say interesting?
Planned mods. I would dearly like to add some running boards on her. Not so much for the look but to keep the sheep and cow crap from throwing up all over me and the car.
And it would ne nice to get it into comp. spec. so I could run it around a few circuits and hill climbs.
2 litre Pinto engine, Webber carb, 5 speed Sierra, Triumph front end. The rest is sort of 1972-74 Ford Escort.
At present it has an old hard top held on with Duct tape. But this is only for the winter. I have my old softy moments. But. No heater. Bought a ceranic heater off ebay but it's still in the footwell.
