Coming soon ... Formosa 236 CM
 
I'm currently modifying a body so that it can be used on an early Locost chassis ... It'll be 93" wheelbase with rear seating position as is standard with a 7 style car .... Only suitable for the narrower live axled cars , which I know limits donors a little , but I won't compromise my narrow styling to accommodate wider donors at present ....

When you think about it there are quite a few donor options with the Escort rear axle. Locost, Locust, Early Westfield, MK, Dutton. The early, narrow Triumph based Robin Hoods and probably others.

You've done a great job on this one Gary. The facebook photo's and info show just how well the concept works. Similar to my 250 Testarossa project with a Locost donor but this time the body is designed to go over a Seven chassis ! The seating position in my TR was basically bolt upright, where as in your car far more laid back as per a Seven style car. Its on my bucket list of car builds to do !!

What are they????

Based on what

Lucky@LeMans 22nd August 2020 16:15

Its an Evanta DB4 Barchetta. They were going to build 99 examples but I don't know if they ever did. It was a replica of a one off Aston Martin prototype.

Thank you .. never seen one before

It shares a very similar outline, even the wheel base is the same as Gary's new car at 93" !

looks good!

A good deal to be had here if its still available, rolling chassis complete with the body as shown above.

This has real possibilities. A LOCOST frame and a that body!

Price?

I guess not :icon_biggrin:

Is that English Pounds or Euros? :icon_cool:

Mister Towed 4th December 2020 16:44

That'll be British pounds.

There are options on the basic bodyshell - head fairing deleted or moved over for left hand drive, choice of bonnet style, etc.

Here's the website in case you haven't seen it -
