Its rumored the shell was found recently in a lockup in Essex, how true, who knows, TBH I dont think it would be that hard to build a replica, on the assumption you can find a decent Mk1 tranny.
I do know the mechanical were robbed out to rebuild a GT40, Not Unexpected really with the value of genuine GT40s
Of course, later, there were another 2 Transit Supervans built, and a Renault Espace, all 3 were built around F1 parts
Alan Butcher bought that from fords for £1000.
Used to be parked outside his house in hornchurch, essex.
The engine that ford used was a refurb, but at the time, was still worth the same amount as the van cost.
The steering column was made up of about 12 rods, and 11 knuckle joints.
Barry Lee was the main driver for fords advertising at that time.
Glad to hear it's now running, who's dyno did you use & what was the torque figure? You are to be congratulated on managing to build a car that weighs exactly 800kg, not one under, not one over. Uncanny.
