I am a newbie to kit cars and have just put a deposit down on a Robin Hood 2b.

According to the tax status on Gov.uk it was first registered in Dec 2001 and Manufactured in 1989 (assume that's the donor car. Fitted with a new Pinto engine in 2001 with twin 40 Weber carburettors. 

I have been told that it has been through an SVA.

Will have an MoT when I buy (being bought through a local garage)

What are the things that I need to check confirm?

Thanks

The V5 should say RobinHood 2B or similar  NOT Sierra.

Check what it says on the log book make sure it has had a sva 

If it hasn't had the SVA, it won't have a log book, no? 😉

I suppose I was working on the basis that if the V5 said Robin Hood 2B then at some time an SVA must have been passed in order for it to get its registration?

What’s the Reg and do have any photos someone on the forum might recognise it. Also good if you can get other documents such as build photos, Copy of any letters to DVLA or old MOT certs.

If it says that on V5, then I'd say it is registered correctly.

It is registered right looks like a sliding pillar if I’m correct there not the ideal suspension but it  all depends on how much it is up

Appears to be correct on gov site, but no MOT since March 2015 so I might be suspicious about a new MOT. Could be a friend of a friend MOT’ing the car so do your own checks on collection.

Thanks for all your help and checking for me. On the MoT side the guy selling had genuinely not touched the car for 4 years as it had been in his garage. So it all looks legit

      Hi all I'm a newbie to this forum. 
      Last month I purchased a 2b unfinished project from 2002, the model with the sliding pillow suspension. It was taken for the iva test but failed put in a barn and forgot about.  With the car I got failure paperwork and other documents, my intentions are to finish the project and enjoy it. After cleaning it up ang carrying out the alterations I'm going to book it back in. My question is how long are you allowed between test and retest as I know I won't get it right first time .
      Thanks all.

      Hello
       
      I am just in the process of completing a Robin Hood 2B that was given to me in a part finished state. I am progressing well and have just finished sorting the electrics. However, I have noticed that when I press the hazard switch the indicator warning lights don't flash. The indicator lights themselves work and the hazard switch lights up, I just don't know if the dashboard warning lights should flash. The indicator lights and the warning lights work correctly when using the indicator column switch.
       
      It is based on a 88 Ford Sierra 2.0L OHC, can anybody help please?
       
      Thanks

      The time has come to part with my Robin Hood 2B, Its been a great car and been upgraded loads since i got her, just time for something new now.
       
      The car has 0838 Miles on the clock, although the speedo cable was broken for a while (repaired now) so it’s more like 1200ish in total so incredibly low all the same.
       
      2002 Robin Hood 2B - Always garaged zero rust.
      Full side doors and wet weather gear.
      "Road Runner" has a smooth running 2.0 XE Red top Vauxhall engine with ZX6 bike carbs and Megajolt ignition (she’s fast around 175 BHP).
      Using a Type 9 gearbox with short shift
      Front double wishbone suspension uprated double spring rear (she handles very well)
      All round ford cosworth disc brakes drilled and grooved front discs (she stops well)
      Nice full size leather seats, custom dash using escort clocks
      Westfield silencer with multi branch manifold
      Fitted with a Thatcham 2 immobilizer
      The build quality is very good, not a show car but built safely and well. Fuel cost is about £20 per 100miles at motorway speeds.
       
      Looking for £5500.
       
      Call Alan 07956441132.
       
      P.S the wheels are all the same as the front ones, so not as in the picture. These were taken in May 14.
