Default Coupes ?

Might not DNA see a 250GT Tour de France as a logical development ?

Are they still going to market the convertible?

Also wonder what happened with the outsourcing of the molding of the SWB that was supposed to increase quality of bodies? Did that actually happen?

That Tour de France GT looks bloody gorgeous! Interesting it has the chrome trim atop the sill - kind of vindicates it's use on a SWB as some have already done. neat and tidy

The sill trim is exactly what I am intending to do. Thanks for the picture.

I emailed Chris just after Christmas. Looks like the development of the 275 convertible is on hold for the time being. I read in another thread some time ago that "some" grp work was being outsourced but being finished off at Tribute.I think they are busy supplying existing orders.
Probably best to contact Tribute directly for an up to date answer.
I did talk to Nubodi earlier in the new year about painting my Triumph Roadster but they are very busy and fully booked with builds / paint until August.

Ah OK -thanks. Didn't contact Tribute directly because I'm not looking at purchasing anything at the moment so would be wasting their busy time - was more curiousity tbh. Are you going to build one?

Not sure how this project managed to get from the top pic to the bottom one, I guess there's no motor fitted in the first picture.

It'll be a real shame if the body can't be made to fit the donor as well as it does in the first picture as it was turning out to be a great looking car.

It looks to me as if the bonnet isn't pushed closed in the 2nd picture. The bottom front of the bonnet has been removed, it was going to be fixed to the body with the front bumper, hence the higher closure line.
It does look very close to being finished. I would image the windows could be a stumbling block but of course no problem for the convertible version.

Default Rebodied Z3

Possati Z3 lancia.jpg

Looking out for Z3 kitcars:

Here is an original and unusual Stefano Possati B32 from Italy, with a Lancia Aurelia radiator grill. Built in about 2013. It was a Z3(M), but with Coupe door window glass. Searches produce few close up photos.

It comes from the Mille Miglia Design group: http://www.virtualcar.it/mille-migli...efano-possati/

That is truly hideous.

What happened to the 275? It looked so close to being finished.

I hoped we might be seeing a prototype on display at Stoneliegh but that looks unlikely now.

Not sure where "Old No 7" and the 275 convertible project is at the moment.

That conversion looks like a spoiled dream. Cannot believe they pursued it to the end.
