Marlin Roadster Kit Car Ventnor, Isle Of Wight
A fabulous fun car with classic looks and tons of smiles per mile, the Marlin’s design was based on the 1930’s Alfa Romeo but used British parts.
My Mark 2 Marlin took 2 years to build (not by me) and was registered in 1986 this short wheelbase Roadster has the Morris Ital 1700cc OHC single carb engine and Ital running gear.
Over the years many of these cars have been chopped and changed but this one looks like the one on the brochure. This is a rare original car with the correct engine, mechanics, seats, wheels etc as supplied in the original kit. Has a solid Canadian Oak dash and fly-off handbrake (for trials/hill climbing). Comes with new MoT and full years road tax, also build manual and paperwork.

Tyres are good with almost new fronts. New battery, timing belt, water pump, steering rack. Radiator cleaned and tested, new wheel cylinders/brake parts, flexible hoses etc and new oil and filter.
Paint is good but has been touched-up here and there and has small stone chips and scratches but nothing serious and polishes up really well. Everything works but it is 26 years old and not in showroom condition. Has been garaged for the last 3 years, and now it’s back on the road...Why am I selling it!
This is a small car and you will not fit in it if you are 20 stone, you must be agile and ready for an exciting ride. Unfortunately I’m not quite as flexible anymore and my wife refuses to get in incase we can’t get her back out again. So I’m thinking of something a little less extreme.
I’m offering it to some one on the Island first for £2750. If no one is interested here, I’ll sell it to a club member or on Ebay.
