You need to scan that and email me a copy, that is just a classic 1970's peice of bling, maybe even worth someone recreating the car lol, please someone shoot me now!!

PS was it a series 1 or 2 or does it even matter, it's a silver shadow now :mrgreen:

Maybe it is just me but it really reminds me of an Allegro vanden Plas. if it had been made earlier maybe BL would have stolen the guys work :LOL:

It truely is worse than I thought too, the design could have been done a whole lot better than that, Austin allergro vanden plas is too much praise.

The slot mags are fantastic. I'd love to get hold of a set. Ignoring the rest of the modifications, those wide arches have actually been done quite nicely, certainly more attractive than the Works racers, the recent Willpower clone, or any other attempts I've come across. Thanks for posting these scans, that car made me laugh out loud!

Groovy baby ! ( I think that's the right era ) I think the mention of aluminium , pop rivets and filler would suggest it wasn't buit to last

I remember John Brown Wheels, on London Road Croydon, just the place for a set of wide wheels for your Ford Anglia !

I like Wolfraces as well , very 1970's

I've driven past what looks like a nice orange Allegro for sale - must stop and have a look next week

Gosh! Well that goes to show that money and taste definitely don't go together! A sort of modern equivalent of the Docker Daimlers?
