Default If only in the US!

I have always loved this car since it was first introduced. It never came available here in the states.

I am currently starting a scratch built that will follow the concept of the Phantom GTR using a Ford Contour as the mechanical donor. I have found most of my glass donors such that I won't have to have any custom made.

Two things I am curious of on the GTR. Was the Honda front suspension moved to the rear and steering eliminated? What was used for front suspension?

Also wondered if you could tell me how many pieces the body is made of? It seems that there is an outer shell and a cockpit tub. Are the door jambs a part of the shell or the tub? Are they bonded together or does the tub bolt to the chassis then the body bolt onto the chassis/tub?
