Here is the auction: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Looks like it might be good and probably worth a look.

24 hours later and its gone up like a cat with a rocket up his a**e.
think this is begining to get out of my price range.
what i am after is an older dart that perhaps needs some work on it but still sound and useable.
ho hum, just keep on looking for now.

It took us ages to find our Dandy but it was worth waiting for, there will be one out there for you too. It's early season yet and tends to be quiet for Dandy's but it will pick up Very Happy

Post by wingnut1 on Wed 22 Feb 2012, 11:00 pm

you name it , ive looked at it, but still cant find me a dart.
to be honest a tatty dart needing some work or almost a full blown resteration would be fine.
welding and fabracation would not be a problem as i probably will have to raze the ride height to match my discovery.

oh well ,will just keep on looking

well done mike.

yes its one of those big nasty 4X4 things and shock of all shocks it goes off road as well !!!.

I tend to work as a marshal on rallies such as Wales rally GB and the bulldog classic rally.
sleeping in the disco (4X4!) aint getting any easier, especially when you six foot three.

SO.

that's why I want a dandy dart as its small enough to put up in a forest on the side of a hill in the middle of the night.
the reason I want one that needs work doing to it, is because I will need to strengthen the chassis and suspension so it will take the stresses and strains off road.
I may even remove the old chassis and mount the camper onto an army (sankey) trailer chassis as they are built like barn doors and would give me the ground clearance I need.

this may get me drummed out the brownies but I think it would make an interesting project.
if you let me stay a brownie , I may even write about it with some pictures of my exploits.

the bloke who owned it put it up on e-blag.
it went for £75.
it ended during the day and i was at work.
I BID A POUND SHORT (BIG BUGGER!)
the A frame had been cut off so it would have been the ideal one to use .
i want an old cheep one as it would be a big shame to cut a nice new(ish) one about.
