Identifying Donor Car Used For My Kit

Recommended Posts

Hi I brought a Robin hood 2B 26-07-2016 The car came with no history as such. How can I identify the donor car reg year to get correct parts?


Car Reg on Kit is GIG7004


The engine is ford pinto 2 ltr


Kit was registered 1999

Sorry Richard, it would be almost impossible.

The reg number is odd....normally you would expect to see an age related plate

ie the same year as the donor, or a Q plate.

Your reg looks like a personalised one, and may have been put on by a subsequent owner,

not the original builder, so even if it was built by a RHOCAR member, he (or she!)

would not recognise it now.

Can you trace back owners from the log book?

Check your v5 again. Mine gives the registration date as 1997 but also a note saying declared date of first manufacture as 1985. The number pate looks to be NI and probably a personal one put on by a previous owner. An HPI full check may show the changes in number plates, mine did for my MR2

Thanks for all your help, registration number I did find a bit strange, You have all given me ideas of ways to establish the year of the Donor. I,ll post when I find out.

Many thanks, Richard
