Yes, Mine has the Cossie MkIX motor, the CR transmission, Lotus wheels, A front and rear ARB, special ratio shocks, lower suspension and so on. It has been much more developed than the GT. I found it in San Jose, Ca. about three decades ago but have never been able to determine it's history. Ford DID develop one or two like this but who knows if this is one of them. It isn't a fireball by todays standards but was competitive then. I plan to install a bolt in roll over bar and fuel cell and run it in the VARA vintage races-- It's about time that FORD has representation in the small production classes other than the Lotus Cortina sedan!
I have a 'rescue' that the PO butchered that I'll fully develop later.
I used to own Performance Research in SJ and roadrace a Lotus 7 so I have lots of goodies left over.
The GT was equivelant to the Sunbeam alpine 1500cc in size, weight and Hp and will run in the same class. I think I can beat them (presuming I can drive well enough)
BTW, which BB are you referring to? I've got a few of them here also.
YOU can build and race your own car
