Ron Shentall at this address... [email protected] has got a mould for them, don't know if he would produce any, might be worth a call?

First pic was taken at Lazy Sunday 90 ish, was built by PFF and was the one he got a ticket for because the Rozzers said the screen was too small or at least I think it's the one.

The front was originally developed/ created by Kris Brown while he was working at Jagos . Later Stuart Holmes of Might Minor owned the moulds butI've no idea where it is now.

Hey Charlie!

That one of Pete's looks like it's at a Custom Minor Club Meet - looks like Biggles Cal Looker behind it?

...and the last pic of the black and flamed car, behind is Russ' fiat-powered 4-door 948 SMM - what happened to that?

And for that matter, Russ Smith....

The black and flamed one was named Thug.

The yellow later green coupe was started by Chris Palmer from Oxford, Pete Levitt bought it unfinished

I built mine in the late seventies, can't remember where I got the front from though.


I called my car "Minor Modification"
I sold it to a pr*ck who fired it for the insurance!!

...and I always thought they were meant to be more of a 40 Ford front end than willys....

TBH I was never really convinced - preferred the standard Minor front....
