Okay, here are some text to pics. Hope to finished next year as a Cobra 289 Sebring race car clone (if you take a look from 10 yards away):

Nobody knows for sure but I guess the age for chassis and body something between 28 and 32 years old. Former MGB running gear sold :-) and bespoke front and TVR Griffith 500 rear weldet in incl. tunnel tubes for stiffness. Front got Jaguar XJ6 hubs, vented discs and Wilwood Dynalite Calipers, MBG Steering. Rear TVR Griffith 500 hubs, vented Ford Sierra Cosworth discs and calipers, Cosworth diff and drive shafts. Rover 3.5 bored to 3.6 liters, omega forged pistons 10:1 comp ratio, balanced and tuffrided bottom end, Holbay 111 camshaft, small block chevy solid lifters, steel push rods adjustable steel rockers, twin valve springs, std. heads, main bearing stud conversion, shot peened H section rods, polished and drained valley, external oil feed to lubricate dizzy/cam drive gears, electronic ignition, quad 45 dellorto DRLAcarbs. This is mated up to a 5 speed LT77 gearbox. Body needs many modifications like flared rear fenders etc.

Lots of GRP work, but some metal too. Made some brackets for the TVR rear anti rollbar and used a Triumph GT6 front bar for the front, that was the best option to lengthen it. Had to fabricate some brackets for the front bar too. I did not want to weld them to the bottom wishbones.

Thanks roverman. In ground effect? Not at all I think.

Yes, bodies are available in the US and UK.

Kind regards
