I first purchased the
car in 1987 from a friend of mine, who at the time owned a wrecking
yard for Z Cars. The car had been written-off by an insurance
company after it had been involved in an accident.
I purchased the car as
a rolling chassis, with doors only. The purchase price was $1000.
Unfortunately the left hand front rail was sitting in the
transmission tunnel, so it did need a lot of work.
Unfortunately I don't
have any pre-build photos, but the following pages will let you see
what work was done etc. The first time it turned a wheel in anger on
the track was 1988.
I hope you enjoy. Drop
me a line if you have any questions or comments
