It's a S*mmio Cordite fitted to a Scimitar SS1 chassis Alex ... so , in a kind of estranged way , loosely related to your Formosa ..

The car looked great and was getting a lot of attention, I asked in the Jag tent and they didn't know who the owner was and said he just parked there

The pitches around there was all for Jaguars and I was only about 100 yards away and parked on the Jaguar XKEC stand in my XK pity I didnt get to have a chat with the owner it would have been a really good conversation going through his build and comparing it with my Formosa

Correct, Richard brought it from me and after giving it a tune-up, adding the stripes, he done a deal with his friend and current owner Len.

Len, uses it at every opportunity and took it to Silverstone.
He told me he was offered 15K last weekend by a Belgian gentleman but refused to sell it as he's to attached to it .
After all it is the only one ever build!! Well, possibly 1 of 2 as I now have the Belgian gentleman's details.
