He's also done continuation Cobra's in fibreglass? carbon, and used Kirkham's also. none built by AC at Thames Ditton. Shelby's pa...

My E Type had a brand new body from Martin Robeys and never went down the line at Jaguars. It was still an E Type and sold for top money.

In the case of this MKII there are several questions. 1. How much of the original Tiger shell is left? 2. How much of the MKII specific body has been lost (different scenario to even a stock mKI/MKIA) 3. Has the car been reparied/will it be restored so that it is safe to drive? I will start by sayin...

It was quite a special day for sunbeams. There was al...
