Title: Bulldog Mk 5, best way to sell it?
Post by: bill gates on July 23, 2022, 11:15:45 AM
I have a Bulldog Mk 5, was only on the road to & from DVLA testing station, it passed & was registered with log book & 6 months tax, which one had to purchase when registering.
It then returned to my garage, where it was stripped ready to be painted (this took five years for my professional sprayer mate to get round to it) by which time I had lost interest, so there it sits, painted but never fully competed or reassembled (I only did the bare minimum to get it through DVLA test in case changes were needed.

Any ideas of the be best places to advertise? Been out of the kit car scene for so long, don't know if a specialist magazine, ebay or somewhere else is best?

There are still magazines around there is a kit projector page on eBay. Sorry to hear you have lost interest in the car.

Well, I put it on Ebay as I got an email from them saying free listings & no selling fees (they still charged me £15)

Has provoked responses from a few people and has had over 450 views. Makes me want to keep it & get it on the road, but in reality, I don't think I ever will.

All peeps were concerned about DVLA registration. I remember getting it registered for testing just before the new SVA tests came into being, so although DVLA could not test it until after SVA came into being, it was tested to pre-SVA standard? However V5 log book clearly states SVA 05 02 2001.

The paperwork shows it was DVLA inspected and passed on 05 January 2001. Am I right in thinking SVA started from 01 January 2001? (somebody posted it was 1999)

It is not registered as a Pilgrim Bulldog, but a unique name, DVLA were happy with this & also happy to retain original donor number plate. V5 shows 'SVA 05 01 2001' and also Model as unique name and stating kit car. Date of first registration shows as when Ford Crappy donor car was first registered in 1981.

It must all be ok? DVLA even taxed it, which was a condition of getting it registered, along with insurance.
