  3. Looks like Swallow Doretti Chassis 1292 sold yesterday at Bonhams auction in California for 131k. Supposedly the last one made, and a nice example for sure. https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/24811/lot/100/?category=results&length=90&page=1 Cheers Dan P.S. This one goes up on the block on the 31st: https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/AF18/Auburn-Fall/lots/r0383-1955-swallow-doretti/700905
  4. Hello I am new in this circle and I am a great fan of the rare Doretti roadster. Therefore I have collected some photos of this car from some owners and from the photo database flickr. Now you can find a calendar with 13 motifs of Swallow Doretti cars here: http://tinyurl.com/doretti2020 If you are interested in, you can buy it. Kind regards Thomas

  6. As part of the restoration of my Doretti I am changing from drums to discs on the front. Aside from that I will be retaining the standard early car suspension and running gear although I have got some Alloy hubs and will be using (slightly) uprated springs and adjustable shocks. Road use only intended. I believe that I could use either the Tr3 dscs and callipers or the Tr6 versions but that the latter option is preferable as the calipers are cheaper and more readily available. (I have both types of caliper mounting plates available so that's not a consideration). I just wondered whether there are any other issues to take in to consideration in making the decision between the two disc/caliper options? Any advice on this point will be welcome.
  7. Does anyone recognise this Doretti with an unusual side exhaust? Ken Yankey

  16. Hello All, I need a bit of technical assistance which I'm hoping someone can help me with. I've recently replaced the front wheel cylinders on a Swallow Doretti and I've bled the system. I'm 100% sure that there is no air in the brake lines but I can't get a firm brake pedal. If I pump the brakes, the pedal firms up but if I release the pedal pressure and put my foot on it again, the pedal will go to the floor. I think the problem is due to the fact that I have had to adjust the front brakes all the way out, and the rears were pretty much the same. The brake linings have plenty of meat left on them, but the drums (which look quite aged) don't have a lip around the outside (which I would expect), that makes me think they've been skimmed fairly recently. I can't see any leaks around the master cylinder (single Girling type) but I can't say for sure whether I have a master cylinder problem or if I should replace the drums and fix the adjustment first. Any thoughts? Does anyone have the wear limit for the drums so I can measure them? Thanks in advance.
