Hi all, I have this parked behind the house, it was an R-reg 1300 dolomite. We're expecting to be moving house sometime soon, so before it goes to the scrapman, does anyone want it. It's near Cardigan in west Wales, which I admit is a long way from most places, but if anyone's near enough to come and take it, or bits of it, away then they're welcome to. It was running when it was parked up, but that was quite a while ago. Sorry but I don't think I have the time to remove any parts and post them.

The boot floor's missing, which where the brambles are getting in. Don't think the rain actually gets in though.

Well I started off with two Dolomites, this one that was a runner, and a 1500 W-reg red one that was complete but I never had running. The red one rusted first, and was cut up and scrapped, but the mechanicals were all kept, plus a few other bits. The yellow one is still complete, barring the bits that have rusted to the point of falling off.

What bits were you thinking of?


Also needing to be saved, '59 morris minor for serious restoration(out of shot), Renault 19(red one), Skoda 135(black one), and the others should be identifiable.

Just adding some more photos, proof I think, if it were needed, that the shell is beyond saving. However if would be nice if some of it was to live on.

That must be a strong contender for "Most Rotten Dolly - EVER!"

Oh alright, maybe I can post a few bits :roll:

This one, front nearside wing?

It's a bit grubby and the plastic needs re-glueing a bit at the back, but the chrome/stainless is all straight and undamaged.
