Footnotes

  • Haydn Davis's Burlington Motor Company has been responsible for a number of traditionally styled kit-cars (and a Jeep lookalike) over the years, but its Arrow sports car was somewhat unusual in that it was only ever offered as a set of paper patterns and plans, the purchaser being entrusted with the entirety of its construction. The ubiquitous Triumph Herald chassis was the intended basis, as is the case with the example offered here. Being a Triumph-based kit-car, the Arrow is eligible for clubs catering for both types of vehicle. Spares are both cheap and relatively easy to obtain. Over 6,000 sets of Arrow plans were sold and it is estimated that over 500 cars were built.

    We are advised that this particular Burlington Arrow was constructed between 1985 and 1987 using a Herald chassis, strengthened at the rear. The engine is a Ford Cortina 1600GT cross-flow unit equipped with a twin-choke carburettor and four-branch exhaust manifold. An average fuel consumption of 30mpg is claimed. A tonneau cover, hood, side windows, spare wheel and tool box containing the jack and spanner are included in the sale. Finished in British Racing Green with brown interior, the car is described by the private vendor as in generally good condition and comes with current road fund licence, MoT to June 2014 and Swansea V5 document.
