Building a convertible?

What's the story?

YBX 98 - the monocoque 100E's registration - is showing as taxed on a silver 1961 car, I assume not the car shown above with the separate (103E or similar) chassis.

If it were, Rick, then the Registered Keeper is doing themselves out of the benefits of having a pre-1960 registration? After all, the Pop chassis will have a dateable chassis number stamped on the left front frame leg?

Is the body made of cardboard? It certainly looks like it. What is the springing on the front? I cant see any. Has he chopped the crossmember and welded the R/S engine mount to it. Where are the 100E parts?

The engine looks like it could be 100E (ie it has a waterpump I think), and the seats, but the rest looks like a mix of 103E chassis and pieces of cardboard - presumably the latter was used during a mock-up phase to help build the body from something more substantial, or at least rain resistant.

As so little 100E remains, I assume the reg. no. that's still lives is on something else. Or is pending cancellation. Or maybe the blue 100E was re-assembled ...

It would need to have an original un modified chassis suspension and axles to qualify for tax/MOT exemption for historic vehicles.

I was mistaken about the chassis. I though the crossmember had been cut but enlarging the photo shows it more clearly. The engine mount is going to be/or already attached to the angled chassis brace. The is probably why it is sitting so far back.

Hi
Might make it a bit prone to lifting the front end if too much right foot is applied at the start. On the other hand perhaps that engine doesn't deliver enough power for that.

But why dissect a car just to remove the engine, gearbox, and a seat. Isn't that a bit overkill?

Agreed, it would certainly result in the car not having a chance of going back on the road.
