Default Coming soon ... Formosa 236 CM

I'm currently modifying a body so that it can be used on an early Locost chassis ... It'll be 93" wheelbase with rear seating position as is standard with a 7 style car .... Only suitable for the narrower live axled cars , which I know limits donors a little , but I won't compromise my narrow styling to accommodate wider donors at present ....

When you think about it there are quite a few donor options with the Escort rear axle. Locost, Locust, Early Westfield, MK, Dutton. The early, narrow Triumph based Robin Hoods and probably others.

You've done a great job on this one Gary. The facebook photo's and info show just how well the concept works. Similar to my 250 Testarossa project with a Locost donor but this time the body is designed to go over a Seven chassis ! The seating position in my TR was basically bolt upright, where as in your car far more laid back as per a Seven style car. Its on my bucket list of car builds to do !!

Its an Evanta DB4 Barchetta. They were going to build 99 examples but I don't know if they ever did. It was a replica of a one off Aston Martin prototype.

It shares a very similar outline, even the wheel base is the same as Gary's new car at 93" !
