very neat... wonder if it can be shipped across the pond?
looks neat and could be a good option to somebody with a good chassis and drivetrain but a roached out body

Neat, but I'm sure someone could find a spit for 3 grand. Unless you can fit a blown 454 under that hood...

Nose of an AC Ace, tail and floors of an MGA. A very ambitious project.
Statement at bottom of page: " If you require the above process to be completed by us using your donor car (this includes us stripping the donor and disposing of unwanted parts) we can carry out this procedure for £600."
That seems cheap!
Done with quality work I think it would be a nice car.

I like the Spyder "German Style"



If I could find one on the US East coast in LHD I would be really tempted.

I posted on these about a year ago. The are based on the Herald and not the Spitfire. (unless Gary changed things, #$@$#!!! work computer blocked his site) Heralds have a longer wheel base and outriggers in the rockers. You could do Spit but it would be a ton of work. On the upside, Stifire/GT6 parts will work. If anyone is seriously intrested in purchasing one of these please contact me. I really want one. So does my MG driving neighbor, bcliff. We figured we could get 6 kits into a container and ship it to Detroit. It would cost right around $2500 per kit, including shipping. The guy who makes them said he would discount them if we bought in bulk and said he could load them. (his shop is near a port) He also said he could come up with a few RHD racks as well.

Edit: My bad, it based on the Spit. If anyone is interested, they'd still fit in the container!

Triumphguy,you know this is the first interesting thing I have seen in a while. It is totally do able and cool looking. The price and container deal is not bad either.This is tempting as I live close to Chicago and Detroit is also okay. Any one else got the gears going in their heads? Have a 1980 spit frame sitting in a barn that I was going to weld up tubing on and make a little Lotus 7 type roadster out of. Even if we needed to add some length to a spit frame we could cut in half at the center and add wheelbase.I need to do some research on this project.Will get out my Herald-Vitesse manuals for measurements.Any one who wants to talk more please post or pm me.

Hi,
I am new here ....I was just checking my website stats and it showed a link from here to my website and I thought I better say hello....

We have been producing the SAMMIO SPYDER for a few years now and following on from repeated requests for a Spitfire version , we are in the process of creating it....kits will be ready from about April / May.

Dave and others , this may be of interest to you guys...

We have also teamed up with a guy in New York state , John Cheshunt , who has a background in kit cars and wants to offer my packages in the U.S. He has a few ideas of his own but as far as the Spitfire ( CORDITE ) version is concerned , I believe it will be offered pretty much as per my website.

John can be contacted directly on info@bigbellybanks.com .... tell him I sent you !!

Has anyone ever had experience with the Vincent Hurricane kit? It sure looks good.
