Adios formosa
 
I was commissioned to strip the body from a 1969 MK2 Vitesse by John Knight of Cretas , Spain ... The car arrived a few weeks back , I removed the body and fitted one of my frames , pinned the body in place , made inner wings and radiator mounts and hung the bonnet ... This enabled John to have it shipped home as a single unit with all his parts wrapped inside it ... I also fitted the really nice chrome powder coated wires before she left ...

Gary - Congratulations on another car off to a new home.

How many Formosas (in all variations) have you sold now?
( Just curious really. )

Cheers, Paul. :)

Yeh ...sorry about that !! About 20 , I think but not keeping tabs ...about half dozen in Europe , 3 in Norway .. rest over here .
I've done single RHD hump , single LHD hump , no hump , Twin hump supplied seperate and about to do twin hump fixed for a guy in Enfield ...not far from you !!
I have 4 builds active in the workshop , one being finished off by Dakota34 , the prelific S*mmio builder ... so 5 technically on the go ... provisional new build to start in February as well ... so its going ok .

I have guys prepared to spend a bit more money than previously too ..which is nice , my labour doesnt change but the quality of car and parts being used is going up .. 16'' wire wheels and aluminium interiors etc. are proving popular ..

Good news, Gary, glad to hear business is going well for you.

Don't forget that you're selling a very desirable product and some highly valuable skills. For customers looking for the experience of driving and just looking really cool in a fifties racing car, but without a six or seven figure budget, they're going to be blown away by what you can create them for what's probably less than the price of a new base model Ford Fiesta.

Keep up the good work!
