    Yes, the car was sold to an enthusiast, which is a good outcome.

    The gearbox is standard as far as I know. So is the diff i.e. not an LSD. I don't know what size the crown wheel is.

    John, has this been sorted?

    I believe that Myerscough will have finished their rebuild of this car by the end of the Summer term. It has a freshly rebuilt pukka engine ready to go in as well.

    Agreed -this is a very exciting project that is worthy of a magazine feature and shows such as this http://www.raceretro.com/

    It will be great to see a piece of British motorsport heritage brought back to life and I feel that considering the build has been done by students to the best of their ability makes it all the more special.

    Hi all
    Just an update for you. A new group of students will be continuing the project starting in the next 2 weeks (week commencing 19th Sept).
    As you can see from the previous pics the cage has been added to as there was no diagonal in the structure.

    This term will see the students carry out the final shell prep on the outside ready for it to be painted over Christmas.

    Also John supplied us with a Moto-Build built race engine that needs a quick once over then that will be put in during the final stages between new year 2017 and June 2017.

    Wow -that's incredible! It looks like it would have done going through the factory at Cowley Oxford in '83
    Great work, guys

    Hello, sorry for the lack of post on here recently, we have been very busy with our course work. Here are some recent images of how we have progressed with the Maestro over the past few months.

    The college are struggling to source a replacement Scuttle panel (that fits at the base of the windscreen).
    Does anyone have one (or a shell that's being broken for parts and can get it off)?
