Members Car: Jan

This is the Robin Hood Superspec which was owned by Jan Ilston. Sadly Jan is no longer with us, he passed away with a brain tumour in 2011 & is much missed. He was one of our first members, highly thought of, and a valued member of the club. Bought already registered, his was one of the best Robin Hood builds we’ve ever seen, it used the Rover 2.0T series engine mated to a ford MT75 gearbox. As you can see it has the titaniun body panels, which Jan was probably better known for polishing than he was for driving the car – particularly if it was raining. Following his death the car passed into his family & I believe was recently up for sale, if you are the lucky person who bought the car then please come & join us, we’d love to welcome you into the club & the car back to the club!
