Guest's review of Dutton B Type

★★★★☆

“Great fun for way under Caterham/Westfield money. Best...”

Written on: 08/03/2008

Good Points
Different. Cheap compared to pretty well anything comparable. No car tax if pre 1973. Easy to modify using Escort/Cortina parts, ie quick rack, uprated brakes etc.

Bad Points
For some, expensive for a few steel tubes and some aluminium sheet and bits of plastic. But if you think like that then buy a Mondeo.

General Comments
Great fun for way under Caterham/Westfield money. Best looking of the Dutton bodywork, especially the rear wheel arch area.

It's a bit unfair to score three stars for performance because it all depends on which engine is fitted and its state of tune. I've owned two Duttons, one with a bog standard 1200cc Triumph Herald engine (one star performance, if that), and another Dutton with a 175bhp 2000cc Fiat twin cam. The latter could spin its wheels on a damp road in third gear, a definite Five star performer.
