There were similar suggestions that I should use a Cobra chassis to mount my 250 Testarossa body onto but there was no way I was going to cut up a perfectly good ali body to fit it to a chassis that was too wide.
Memories a funny thing no idea what car you are thinking off that looks like this

Not a Kougar

As it happens, this particular car is for sale in the back of the latest edition of Classic & Sports Car. Priced at 60k I think.

I like the wide look - but being a bit more performance orientated, Id have to put the right size Wheels/tyres on - the sidewalls on those balloons will be rubbish in high speed corners.

Chassis number for the Scimitar registrar please?
