Default Sammio workshop & hq

The new SAMMIO web site https://www.sammiocars.com is now starting to generate some new business and I am now getting some very strange looking vehicle's through the workshop for repair or re-commissioning .

Here's the latest to arrive.







It's a OPUS HRT with Ford running gear and a Ford 1200cc pre-crossflow engine and box.
It's been in a garage un-used since 1984, but now the proud owner, a young looking 79 year old (who has owned it since 1983) wants it back on the road !!!!!
Although he has asked me to try and fit a step so he can get in and out easier!!!!

Wow!

Over 30 years sitting in a garage.

Makes my build look quick.

Good luck, Paul.

Default Bit of an ugly duckling!

I hope Aero Screens a revised boat tail rear end and cycle arches are part of the refurb!......could be made into something quite pretty.

Great video...

Google tells me its an Opus HRF...

http://www.statim.co.uk/OPUS%20HRF.htm

According to DVLA is was last taxed in 1986 so it lasted 19 years on the road, not bad, eh!

Goddamit.....Having read the Blurb I had not realized the Elan`s were handed over by Clark or Chapman!
Might explain the Colin Chapman Signature I had on my S4 Elan......wish I hadn`t swapped it now for the Peugeot 504 34 years ago!!!!
