  1. Robin Hood 3A For Sale – 12 Months MOT On a C Reg plate 1985, SVA’d in 2006 Much loved and cared for Robin Hood, which I have owned for approximately 2 years, and regrettably due to a change in circumstances I have taken the decision to let her go to a new home. My hope was to keep this car for many years, hence the reason I no expenses has been spared and looks and drives perfectly! 2.1L Pinto, 205 Block. August last year, Bogg Brothers skimmed the head and thin head gasket, installed an FR32 CAM (still under warranty), vernier cam pulley on standard carburettor, unleaded head conversion, new cam belt, new cam belt follower (all setup by Bogg Brothers) – costing over £1,500 in July 2020 4 into 1 manifold, 5 speed type 9 gearbox with quick shift conversion, shortened sump (new July 2020, new alternator, new starter motor (not yet fitted), new radiator, new revotec cooling fan, new colling hoses, fuel pipe, new battery, 4x new tyres (July 2021), 5 spoke 17’ ford fitment alloys refurbed and powder coated, new shock absorbers (new rears also included in sale, which I have not got round to fitting yet), brand new nose cone, indicators, new cycle wings, rear boot professionally upholstered, bucket seats and a partially carpeted interior. All spare parts I have will be included in the sale. During winter/lockdown all the front suspension, roll cage and control arms were removed and professionally powder coated. MOT’d this week for a full summer of fun! A real head turner and will make someone a fantastic car to enjoy and play with! £3,995 Located in York: 07818530117 More pics to follow.

I can collect if localish to York, or i can send a courier. Please contact me on O773991554I Thanks, David

  5. Hi All, I have some seats from a tiger (i believe)... Due to the recent pandemic... they are now a tad snugg for me They are around 400mm in width, and when I offered them in my 3a looked fantastic. In excellent condtion, 1x seat (drivers) has runners. Was going to stick them on ebay, but thought i would offer them up on here first. Was hoping for 60 quid for the pair. If you are intrested my number is 07818530117. Collection from York would be preferred.

  7. Hi there, I am after a Weber 38 DGAS carb ideally with a Pinto manifold. All help greatly appreciated. Thanks David
  8. Hi there, I will change the oil and filter this weekend and check the spray bar. Thanks for the tips! I will keep you posted.
  9. Hi there, This is my first post! I recently bought a Robin Hood 3b, and following some work to replace the stem seals seems to have developed a knocking noise. I checked valve clearences and they are all good. When i was doing the repair i changed the spray bar to one i thought was new... I suspect this may be blocked! When doing some reading.... Allot of knocking is reportedly due to a blocked spray bar... Does anyone have a spare bar to sell? Or any other suggestions? Also i have a radiator leak... I am after a Cortina Mk3, mk4 or mk5.. radiator with the 90 degree bends at the inlet and outlet. Happy to collect or pay postage.
