Shelby Tiger Prototype commonality with Harrington LeMans

Didn't quite notice it yet but when carefully checking Doug's Homepage today I found that the Shelby Prototype actually used a Harrington formica dashboard and a LL steering wheel:

Perhaps worth a story in the next cats whiskers :wink:

Great Article, is there any truth in the story I've read that when Lord Rootes test drove the car, he left the Hand Brake on!

Although he was still impressed with the Performance?
