1986 YKC Romero



1986 YKC Romero

The company YKC Engineering Limited was born on 3rd July 1992 in Elvington North Yorkshire . They company began with the production of kit car and car kits . The brand name was YKC , short for Yorkshire Kit Cars .

In 2000, the company was renamed to YKC Sports Cars Limited .

Production ceased in 2007 and the company was dissolved.

A total of more than 800 units were produced.

The example we have here was commissioned / built locally by a classic car enthusiast who patiently waded through the DVLA's  IVA mire. The examination alone costing £450!

Ford based with the 2000 'Pinto' engine and ford gearbox & differential.

The vehicle's history file include invoices for thousands! From £5568.00 for the initial kit to £605.00 + VAT for a reconditioned engine to £250 for removing parts from the donor car.

There's no doubting that the construction of this YKC has cost thousands in money terms without getting started on the labour involved!!

At least the quality of the finished article goes a long way to making the commitment all worth while. We think you'll agree, it is a good build.

The car also comes with a guarantee ..... the fiberglass parts won't rust!

The vehicle will require a MOT test before UK use.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Don't forget. We personally collect FREE of charge around 90% of all our auction vehicles. 

So, if you have a vehicle which you would like us to re-home.... just make the call. 01751 474455

Thank you.
