Ever since I bought my 200 Fixed Head Coupe in 2009 I’ve been kept an eye out for others of the same type.

Over the years I managed to put pictures to 8 of them. That’s 50% of the production.

Does anyone have details of any other 200 Coupe’s not listed here?

BMX278Y Not Taxed since October 1996



A420JKP Not Taxed since May 2012



FCC38Y – Exported to Germany



ULC915X – No details on DVLA website



A463TYR - SORNED



TVP919Y – SORNED since 2012. Has 4.0 V8 Conversion



AFX853Y – SORNED Has 2.8 V6 Conversion



Racing Car – No details of registration number. Has 2.9 V6 Conversion

I don't know if mine (the racer) started out as a 2.0 or a 2.8 still trying to find more info about it when it was a car.

I didn't know it was yours! It definitely got a 200 body. Does it have two sets of engine mounts?

not the racer above, this one. also the guy before me had a 2.0 cosworth turbo engine, so it had custom mounts.

Your black Fixed head looks like a 280 as it has twin fuel fillers. I take it you don't have a chassis number for it?

No Chassis number I can find frown

so if it has twin fuel fillers then it was a 280, nice to know.

Not sure that is always true. My 280i has only one fuel filler.

Series 2 FHC shells have a single filler Marcus, all the Series 1's have twin fillers except the 200 which is odd.

I had totally forgotten about this thread I started. Since 2016 another two cars have emerged.





Both being restored.

That's 10 cars out of 16 accounted for. The internet is a great thing.
