Default Adios formosa

I was commissioned to strip the body from a 1969 MK2 Vitesse by John Knight of Cretas , Spain ... The car arrived a few weeks back , I removed the body and fitted one of my frames , pinned the body in place , made inner wings and radiator mounts and hung the bonnet ... This enabled John to have it shipped home as a single unit with all his parts wrapped inside it ... I also fitted the really nice chrome powder coated wires before she left ...

Gary - Congratulations on another car off to a new home.

How many Formosas (in all variations) have you sold now?
( Just curious really. )

Cheers, Paul.

+1 to thinking this thread was signalling the end of Formosa.

Yeh ...sorry about that !! About 20 , I think but not keeping tabs ...about half dozen in Europe , 3 in Norway .. rest over here .
I've done single RHD hump , single LHD hump , no hump , Twin hump supplied seperate and about to do twin hump fixed for a guy in Enfield ...not far from you !!
I have 4 builds active in the workshop , one being finished off by Dakota34 , the prelific S*mmio builder ... so 5 technically on the go ... provisional new build to start in February as well ... so its going ok .

I have guys prepared to spend a bit more money than previously too ..which is nice , my labour doesnt change but the quality of car and parts being used is going up .. 16'' wire wheels and aluminium interiors etc. are proving popular ..
