    It will be a while yet, the car will be on display at the Historic Motorsport Show at Stoneleigh, then we're moving to Devon so plenty to organise in the next few months. The plan is start up and test run by the end of the summer.

    We make a house into a home, after we have built it to a standard, not to a price! We like stripes on Scuds but NOT rear wings on 348s. We just like FERRARIs

    Looking great so far Bernard How did you go about making the body panels for this? Did you do that in house also?

    No, completed all the chassis/mechanical/fabrication in house, but the actual body skin was fabricated by Miles at Vintagecars. We became friends via the Fiat Abarth world and when I contemplated building this car, Miles was involved from the first day. Without a contact to produce the bodywork it would not have been a practical project. There are a few details that make the body unusual for a car of this type, these include tapered louvers on the bonnet, (every louver is punched with a different sized tool), Recessed bonnet straps and a fully enclosed undertray. The body cost was considerable but worth it.

    FANTASTIC............How long will the whole project take?

    My car, a Surtees TS5 Formula 5000 took two years to restore, and the work was farmed out to a professional! You are a true craftsman..............well done!
