Absolutely fantastic michiel, if anybody has a low moment with their build they only have to look at yours to be spurned on.

Would love to see it in the flesh sort of speak and I hope my build turns out half as good.

Hi There,
I sold 47 a while ago and now I'm working on a another GRP project. Quite different a Jensen 541R. Nevertheless, maybe you like this film from the new owner who is enjoying my build a lot. He also made some changes to the looks of the car. It has become a Nash now.

Regards,

Michiel

When you see cars built that well, they are more than just a kitcar... they are a marque in their own right.

It is a good bit of footage and the new owner clearly loves the car. I wonder what he paid for it?

Michiel - Thanks for posting the video link, the car still looks great.

Although I will still think of it as #47.

I'm also glad to see all the build photos have returned as they were all missing the other day.

Take care, Paul.

A fabulous bit of footage, and provides a bit of insight into you crackerjacks that like the no going back, open top approach to motoring.

That car is one of the best sammios out there, the footage does it justus and every thing the new owners says is true..... PURE SAMMIO DRIVING. It doesn't matter which country these cars are driven in they still attract the same attention from the public.

You must be proud Michel, be good to see what you are up to now.

I have been led to believe by a 3rd party it was around 25,000 euros ...

Just read the whole thread,

A cracking build and the colour is spot on in my opinion.

+1 on the paint. Wouldn't have believed that a semi matt brown would work so well. Looks like a patina bronze which I don't believe I've seen on any classic car before (or on anything else) but it works so well. Someone was very brave to choose it and must have been over the moon with the result.

The car was painted by Miglia and when the owner went to collect it , he felt the gloss finish in 2 pack was too much ..it didn't reflect the look of a classic car that he wanted . He took the car home and had satin lacquer added from memory ...... I think he did the right thing with that colour on that car ..

It is a very nicely executed build and proof that these cars can make the money that they deserve to be in today's market ....

That's a good price,

I wouldn't mind betting many many hours went in to that build, I know how much time I have spent on my old thing.
