Here's the catch....

Build as a demonstration for marketing in 2015 by a fantastic body and paint shop, it is quite literally half restored. An exercise in showing the level of work and attention to detail in a restoration, directly compared to the unrestored original. 

Last on the road in 1985 the donor car was very heavily corroded, it had to be very carefully transported. Once stripped down to a bare bodyshell a jig was built and the right hand side was deconstructed and media blasted. The structure was then beautifully reconstructed using new, genuine panels before continuing with the same treatment onto the outer panels. All carried out with incredible accuracy and attention to detail it was prepped and painted to an exceptional standard. Hours and hours went into making the work indistinguishable from the factory original.

The running gear, drivetrain, interior and trim are all yet to be completed (as is the left hand side!) making this a very unusual project to tackle.

Now, what to do with it in the future. Road car? Race car? An eye catching display piece? Who knows......
