I will soon be the proud guardian of the SAMMIO/RIBBLE marque.
I would not be able to do this with out the blessing of Andy, the help of Chris at Tribute and of course Lloyds bank
Gary started it, Andy improved it so I am (with the help of Chris) going to carry on this upward trend.
The bodies have alway been resonable and value for money but it could be so much more with an investment of time and money.
We all know the efforts Andy and Mac put into the Navigator.
The Ribble Colani and the Ribble Pilot CV will cease production.
The G-46 is being reviewed but the Pilot and Navigator will continue for now but will be replaced with a single kit sold in a LWB form for the Herald, a SWB form for the Spitfire, a bonnet for a 4 cylinder engine and a bonnet for a 6 cylinder engine, keeping it all simple.
The first thing to be addressed it the schuttle panel (the bit the windscreen sits on) on both the Pilot and navigator as it's off center and needs sorting out. On this note if theres enought interest we will make a "repair" panel available.
The main improvment will hopefully be the addition of a fiberglass inner floor/rear baulkhead for the LWB Herald version improving the build time and a better finished look.
In the next few week we will be releasing a new Kit the "A1 ALPHA" designed for the Triumph Spitfire, we have the buck and the mould are being done as we speak, so all we have to do is build the prototype. Some pre-production photos and infomation will be listed later along with a build thread.
This will be followed by a whole new SAMMIO SPYDER .
Things are still very much "in the air" and it will take a while to settle down but when we finaly take full control the name will revert back to THE SAMMIO MOTOR COMPANY.
We are based in Swindon, Wiltshire.
