1983 Robin Hood

Cool Caterham or Westfield alternative with 2.0 Ford power; weather gear and throaty exhaust note included! Lots of fun

Dating from August 1983 this Robin Hood echoes the styling and ethos of the legendary Caterham 7 and is powered here by a fruity sounding 1993cc 4-cylinder with carb and RamAir intake mated to manual transmission.

Its not known if the date of registration relates to the donor car, or the Robin Hood itself – the history file includes only the V5C showing 12 former keepers.

The car looks cool, finished in red with black leatherette seats piped red, conventional 3-point seatbelts and small Mountney steering wheel with centre mounted gauges from the donor car. At some point, the dash and interior have been wrapped in non-slip material, but be aware if you wear shorts, it’s like sand-paper! The car comes with a hood and side panels idea if you get caught in a shower!

Starting on the button the car feels and sounds well, pulling away cleanly and manoeuvring with ease as we took these shots. Brakes look to be drum on the back and single piston calliper on the front.

The history file contains only the V5C and current MOT valid until June 2022 with no advisories recorded at 3,017 miles with the last MOT recorded in 2008 at which time the car had covered 2,962 miles suggesting perhaps 12 years off the road.
