Burlington Motor Company Arrow

1980 to 1990 

The Burlington Arrow was the brainchild of Haydn Davies. The idea being that paper plans of the Arrow would be provided for a small fee (around £30) and customers would build the Arrow from the plans out of plywood. 

The structural basis of the Arrow was a Triumph Herald/Vitesse/Spitfire ladder chassis on which the plywood body tub structure would sit which itself was then covered in a thin layer of sheet aluminium. 

The whole concept proved extremely popular due to the low cost of the plans and the overall low build cost of the Arrow. Utilising the mechanical aspects of the Triumph donor a completed Arrow could be on the road extremely cheaply. Plans sold in their thousands and many Arrows exist today and can be seen at various kit car shows.
