2B For Sale


Recommended Posts

Reluctant sale of my stunning and highly individual Robin Hood 2B. 


I'm the original owner/builder. It's all correctly tested and registered on an age related plate, and with 'Robin Hood 2B' on the V5. Currently has 12 months MOT, and just 5500 miles on the clock. Never raced or abused, and always garage stored. It's in immaculate condition throughout, and always draws a lot of attention and compliments. Meticulously detailed with many unique and custom features - There's really very little you could describe as "standard", and I think it's reasonable to describe it was one of the most unique and immaculately presented examples built.


The base kit-spec is a mild steel chassis with stainless panels, front wishbones, and wide rear arch kit. The donor was a 1986 Ford Sierra 2.0GL


Although it isn't used much, I've kept it taxed and MOT'd, and looked after and serviced accordingly. For example, over the past few years I've done work on the brakes, suspension, and a new exhaust. After 20 years of ownership though, life moves on and it seemed like right time for a new owner to enjoy it.

Edit: The exhaust in these pictures is not the one that's currently fitted - I replaced this 5" exhaust with a a 7" repackable stainless exhaust last summer. I'll also try to get some pictures of the side screens at the weekend...

my apologies for being late to the party, but is this vehicle still for sale?


Sorry for the slow response - I haven't checked back here in quite a while.

Technically yes, though there is an interested party deciding one way or the other as we speak. I should know later this week.
