Possibly why it doesn’t like starting.

Date registered
10 June 1981 from DVLA
and no previous MOT history.

Not too keen on that boot thingy
Looks like a good project for a keen enthusiast

How many Dolly’s V8 is there left?

There have been quite a few built, maybe as many as a dozen including this Vitesse dual plenum 3.9 Toledo which is still going.

Also saw this one at Long Marston dragstrip circa 2017, no further info, the owner was not in sight.

Image

Way back around 2012, I saw a very well executed Sapphire Sprint with a V8 offered for sale, but have never seen any trace of it since.

Phils, of course, no longer has it's V8 and the Stag powered car has been out of sight for years.

I think that red 2 door car is Neils (flying farmer )

Stag powered Sprint is back
Admittedly without its V8 in Stag or TVR form.

But the Stag engine was refitted to Lewis Kingston Dads Triumph.
Wonder it they finish it.

and it is not a Dolomite servo/brake master cylinder as well.

The BMC is probably a bigger bore, given that this type is more common with a 22.2mm (7/8") bore.
A Dolomite reservoir will fit (if you can change the seals).

I wonder what Lewis is up to these days. Used to write an awesome For Sale ad if I'm recalling correctly (happens occasionally).
