1972 Davrian Mk 5 For Sale

Davrian Mk5 for Sale
Reg XUO459K
Offers around £6000.

First bought 1971
First registered March 1972

Bought by me 1978

The car is fully road going with a MOT until 6 November 2018, but is now exempt from MOT
Road Fund Licence rate is £0
For many years it was off the road in a garage and hence the mileage is only about 33k.

Phone me on 01297 678932 to discuss the car, or send an e-mail through this web site


998 imp engine with wills rings and large port sport head with R17 cam and multi hole camshaft sprocket.
It has not been adapted to run on unleaded fuel - I use additives.
Weber 28/36 DCD carb on what I think is a Mangoletsi inlet manifold.
Stainless Steel Exhaust manifold and silencer made by P D Gough copying Janspeed examples.
Oil cooler fitted with a thermostat.

Standard imp transaxle.

Standard imp suspension front and back with for some reason 1 half shaft the thicker size.
Spax adjustable shock absorbers all round, the front with adjustable spring platforms.
Revolution 6 X 13 wheels.
Brake servo fitted. Still using drum brakes
Front radiator but no heater.
2 Individually switched SU fuel pumps.


I am selling the car because I use it so little and am finding it more difficult to get in and out!

Although it is a MK5 I am fairly sure it has a MK6 nose and I had a MK7 bonnet (with air outlet) adapted to fit.

All windows except windscreen are perspex.

The headlight pods do not have a raising / lowering mechanism, I just put my arm through each wheel arch, lift the lights and insert a nut and bolt to keep them up.

The seats are trimmed in leather.
