See they have a seperate section in James Hales book and only 25 built and some went to Cyprus built by john Jackson a formula vee specialist garage back in the day.
Wonder if he is still around depending on how old he was in 1970 as a racing car specialist there may be some info on him somewhere.

My hustler Buggy didn’t have a V5 as it was lost years ago by a previous owner.

Do you have a name for the previous owner? Address?  That all adds up to the provenance

Many were turnkey cars but I doubt any company records still exist.

That may be significant, as a turnkey car would imply the date which they were constructed - if they only traded between 70 and 72, then that may help

The mudguards identify the car as a Jackson's Kustom Buggy, based on an EPC Hustler shell and only sold between 1970-72. Many were turnkey cars but I doubt any company records still exist. They were in Fletcher Rd, London W4.

Do I spot Mini van taillights? Cool!

when I applied for the V5 I put that it was on orange VW beach buggy.

Thats the bit that has caused DVLA to get snotty - it would never have been called a Beach Buggy until much later


I should have put that it was a white VW Unknown

I would have applied for with minimal information

Make + Chassis Number + Engine Number - the rest I would have left blank


If the guy said to mail the case worker, then that is indeed what you should do - But do it by letter - keeping originals of anything sent in your possession, as they do lose things

BUT . . . .

When you contact them, don`t draw it all out - make sure you include all the provenance, everything you have found out all in one hit as experience has taught me that when you talk to a case worker, if they have to ask anything back in return that has not been submitted, then a brick wall usually goes up, but if you can give the case worker every bit of info that you can, then when they come back for more info, you will be able to ask them to re-read what you have sent as the answer is already there. If you can think of a question you may be asked, to which the answer is "I don`t know or unsure" then you will lose the case, so do your research first and stick to it.

You have a chassis number, engine number and a reg number - stick to those, build up a rock solid case and then present it to them, because whilst rare, it is not unknown for them to back down and issue an age related number if they realize that they do not have a leg to stand on.

You only get one shot of introducing yourself to a case worker - be careful, be factfull and be methodical


Anything we can help with on here, you only need to ask   8)
