What's so special about this car??
Up until two hours ago, I didn't even know of its existance...
Ant, as someone who actually had one in 1966, I can tell you.
Nothing special. Mine was about 140 bhp, LSD, fibreglass bonnet, doors etc. Minilite wheels. It was a pig to drive, too large a frontal area to be competitive, (Anglias could drive away), but you could always aim about 18 inches over the grass, and never touch it.
Most of these engines would do about 40000, then eat the pistons.
Jim clark had a quick one, but with full double wishbone front end.
Once had the throttle stick open on a fairly sharp bend at 110, even though it had the regulation double springs.
Nothing nice at all, and the Ford/Lotus engine was not good.
