1982 Madison Kit Car
Offered from a deceased estate; only one recorded keeper according to the DVLA but no paperwork; not run for some time; kept in dry storage; in need of recommissioning
The Madison Boat Tail tourers were designed by Neville Trickett and were inspired by the Auburn’s and Packard’s of the 1930s. They used the chassis, engine and mechanicals from VW Beetles and Ford Cortina’s and appear to have been produced between about 1978 and 1990 with GRP panels all round.
This example is a relatively early one, having been registered in 1982 and is the rear engine Beetle based variant. It has obviously not been used for a considerable time and there are no records of MOTs online or in paper format. Experian does not mention any previous keepers, so it is plausible that the deceased owner may have had it since new, using it very little and covering very few miles. The speedo only shows 930 miles, but bidders will need to satisfy themselves on whether that is genuine or not!
Sadly, solicitors dealing with the estate have not been able to find any paperwork relating to the car and we have chosen to photograph it in the same condition it was found in the garage, thick dust and cobwebs included – to show a true reflection of condition and under use. Underneath the dust and cobwebs, is a complete black GRP body, a 1,776cc engine with a big webber carb and some exciting looking, potentially rumbling side exhausts.
