Default Links to useful info for Sammio, Ribble & Miglia builders...

Welcome to the "Sammio Builds" section of the MadAboutKitCars forum.

I hope the information in this thread will provide a better understanding of the various builds in this section…

Brief Company History

2010
Gary Janes (Forum usernames = Lancelot Link, El Primer & The Shadow) started the Sammio company in Poole, Dorset.
Together with Mike Hughes (mikmiglia), Gary developed the initial range of Sammio kits (Spyder, Chevaux, G-46 & Cordite).

2012
Andy Powell (Username = AndyP57) bought the bulk of the Sammio range.
Whilst Gareth Davies (GazDavies) took over the G-46 kit.

2013
Andy renamed his company "Ribble Kits and Classics" and production moved to Preston, Lancs.
Mike set up his own company, "Automotive GRP Solutions" in Poole to sell the Miglia Speedster.

Note:
The Speedster was developed from a Sammio Cordite kit, which caused some "issues" at the time.
So it was at this point that a separate "Miglia Builds" forum was set up & treads transferred from here to there.

"And so it came to pass that two new kit car companies rose from the ashes of the original one."

2014
Mike Moore (mickey1mo) of Replica Rides in Swindon became the new Ribble/Sammio owner.

2015
Chris Welch (Tribute Automotive) announced Tribute will be the new producers of Miglia Speedsters from 2016.

As you can see there has been a number of significant changes over the years.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

2016 Update
All my original posts on this thread have now been edited/updated in an attempt to reflect all the changes above.

However, for full details of current prices, lead times, etc. you will need to contact:

Mike Moore
Replica Rides
Unit 3B, Darby Close
Cheney Manor Ind. Est.
Swindon
Wiltshire
SN2 2PN

www.replicarides.co.uk

At some point the original Sammio website will be updated, but it current reflects the previous Ribble ownership.

www.sammio.co.uk

Historic Sammio Model Range:

Sammio Spyder
This was the original kit that started this whole section of the forum off.



It can be built using either a Triumph Herald, or Triumph Vitesse donor car.

It remains the biggest selling Sammio model by a country mile (150+).

Note: This model was renamed the Ribble Pilot for a while.

Current Status: - Body shells and bonnets are available.
( You will have to sort out your own internal framework / support structure. )

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Sammio Chevaux
A variation of the original kit adjusted to fit a Citreon 2CV.



Current Status: - Body shells and bonnets are available.
( Again, you will have to sort out your own internal framework / support structure. )

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Sammio G-46
Based on a Reliant Scimitar SE5.



Current Status: - Unavailable.
( As a significant reworking of the original moulds would be required before production could resume. )

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Sammio Cordite
Based on a Triumph Spitfire.



Production of this particular kit was halted following the take over of Sammio by Ribble.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Ribble Navigator
The original Sammio Cordite body shell was then re-worked and relaunched as this new model.



Current Status: - No longer offered, as moulds were destroyed.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Future Sammio Model Range:

There is a lot of ongoing development work taking place for the next generation of Sammio kits...

A1 ALPHA
Triumph Spitfire based.





Current Status: - A demonstrator should be available in time for the 2016 Stoneleigh show.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Leighton
Citreon 2CV based.





Current Status: - Being developed for both 3 & 4 wheeled options.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Moss Monaco



Current Status: - Customer car being built with a view to taking a mould when completed.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I think that brings all the basic information up to date, but other areas still need a bit of updating.

So bear with me as I try to improve this thread as best I can, cheers, Paul.

Can we get Mike's advice thread linked here? Pro fibreglass and paint advice could be a suitable title.

My egg crate style grille came with the kit when the project was owned by Gary Janes. I don't know whether he had them made or did them himself, Miglia Mike might be able to shed some light on that one.

2016 Update

I've just finished rearranging this thread in an attempt to bring it up to date.

Is there anything else you think I have missed, or other things I should add / include?

Cheers, Paul.

Just thumbing through the build threads link would be great to know how many continue, hoping builders just gave up posting rather than building.. There's a lot from when I started that just faded out I know a high percentage of kits don't get finished by the original builder..
