early photo Formerly owned by Ron Ottery (left), this car was converted for bike power by AJEC Racing in Gloucester. It was sold to the USA and quickly re-appeared for auction. The engine was a 1,000cc Honda CBR and the rest of the conversion kit is from Z-Cars. You can see some photos of the conversion here.

Robin Gilmour started restoring the car to its original A-series configuration, and sent us the top photo. Sadly he died in 2015.

The car has now (2017) been bought by @ldquo;Crazy Mike@rdquo; Kimball in California, who is continuing the restoration. Mike says: “It’s mostly gutted inside, instrumentation is a MotoGP type digital. Current plans are to re-hab it with said rear coil-overs, a fuel cell instead of the original van tank, some nice 12" tires/wheels and a supercharged 998 (I have other engine options, but the s/c 98 seems an appropriate and more period sort of combo)”.
