Hallo to you all! I am posting this on your forum as the rally and show season is upon us again. Our 1956 Trojan 'Toraktor' Mk1 was stolen from our garage here in Kent in 1999. It hasn't as yet been found although the Police have said it will turn up somewhere if we keep on looking. SOMEONE MUST know where this is as they are too few now to just disappear. It was in restored condition with some of my own improvements not to be seen on standard models. These included; New bonnet which did not have the holes for exhaust and petrol filler and the front was not cut out for the grille as I couldn't obtain the correct mesh. It was fitted with the later 'NEWTON' engine, basicly the same as the Clinton but with pull type recoil start and different petrol tank. Newton engine is BLUE and marked 'Easy Spin Starting'. I fitted proper little ball joints to it to improve the steering and it didn't have a cover over the belt and chain drive as I never got round to making one. The bodywork was all new mouldings and the seat was fitted direct onto the rear part and NOT adjustable. So it differs substantially from original. I am attaching a couple of photos. If anyone should come across this I wouod be grateful to hear from you. All responses in confidence of course. SOMEONE has got it somewhere! Also stolen was a 1935 pedal car which was recovered when one of them tried to sell it to a local Motor Museum. The Police did then put some 'names in the frame' in connection with this and these people appear to have had connections in Lincolnshire, Somerset, and Cornwall. Many Thanks for reading this.
