Where's the Hyundai?

Default Swb targa

As Chris and Dan are intent on building every version of every pre-64 Italian super car, I'd quite like a targa roof on my SWB.
Presumably the Z3 front hood locks could be used with a bit of re-design to the roll bar mounts ? No idea about fastening the rear of the roof - perhaps something from an MR2?

I have an available roof section on my 'broken' mk2 MR2.....



The above is what happens when you can't decide between the front or back boot space on the MR2, so you put the spare wheel in the middle!!

Vandalism or the result of a drift idiot trying to drive home on other people's space-savers (illegally btw) and the wheels coming off?

I like that. Looking at it, it's based on a TVR Sagaris or T350

I wonder what a Maserati a6g/54 would look like with a 250 swb front end from the a pillar onwards. The grill that's slightly angular . From the side the bonnet shape looks similar

What about something that is a mix of 2 or 3 tribute kits blended together ?

For example: A Kobra front with 250GTO headlamps and vents (Kobrarri).




The rear could be a modified Z300S (with a Lyonhart K style rear diffuser) and LED rear lights for example.





You could end up with many different mixes and have dozens of different models.

I like it - the rear end could use smart car rear lamps
