There is a lot of interest in this car and people are keen to build their own replications. Here we can help you. We now can fabricate the rear space frame off the car. If you are interested in a rear space frame let us know, front space frame will be available soon.
After six months of gathering technical information and data, plus two trips to Australia to look at a genuine examples,many thanks to Gerry Duyvestyn and Nick Watson. We made the first incision, and now have the cockpit ready for typical rust removal that is associated with a car of this age. Aswell as rectifying previous repairs before our ownership. This will be a showcase to show the skills and competence we have as an Automotive Engineer and Restorer. The car will be actively used on hill climbs, both sealed and unsealed, aswell as track work and other car rallies. I have so far removed both the frt & rear sections of the car,with the rear section I also removed the rear firewall completely.The floor of this car is in a badly repaired state and I need to fabricate new floors as well as repair the rear cross member below the rear firewall.I have the boxing folded ready to go around the firewall that the spaceframe will attach to & have the tubing for the rear framework sitting in the steel rack. I am hoping to be able to display the project with engine and gearbox fitted to a partially built rear subframe attached to the cockpit.
Here we can see at the recent Ellerslie Concours d'Elegance Classic Car Show the Lancia 037 Recreation at the Lancia Register of NZ stand.
We displayed the modified body shell along with the rear space fame chasis jig. Also we displayed the engine and gearbox configuration that we intend to use.
Allan was busy all day as there was a lot of interest in the car.
