According to Steve Hole on Total Kit Car the moulds were owned by KAD fibreglass.

Their website isn't currently working but you could ring them for more info, etc.

Default Oh no...

So my fave car was always the Cobra. My wife's is the Healey.

Now if there was a Healey Z3 rebody we wouldn't have enough room on the drive !

And as I haven't built my Kobra yet (kit on order) then the Healey will have to wit
