    The M Type has been on sale for a good few months and we’ve had more interest in it as a spares provider rather than a complete car. One or two contacts from abroad but unfortunately nothing has progressed so far.

    The picture below shows the K chassis in its shot blasted state ready for powder coating which should be completed later this week .

     

    K1 Chassis ShotblastedJon Langley’s future son-in-law (Stuart) is an MOD certificated welder, who TIG welds chassis part time for a company near Radstock called Caged Laser Engineering Ltd

    ( https://www.cagedlaser.co.uk/ )

    They have a chassis sized shot blasting container and we locked Jon in it on Sunday morning until he finished stripping the chassis.

    Caged are responsible for Caterham, Westfield and many other car company roll cages and chassis. They also produce chassis for this company:

    GTO Engineering

    You too could own a Revival 250 and here is an article explaining just how reasonably priced they are: https://www.carscoops.com/2021/11/gto-engineerings-1m-250-swb-is-the-ferrari-classic-you-can-crash-and-not-care/

    250 Revival on JigAn F40 Revival might also happen in the future, so maybe keep your piggy bank close for now? Caged do all sorts of fabrication, but their mainstay appears to be cages and half cages for all manner of track day and racing moderns. I did see jigs for Minis and Mark 2 Escorts which I guess the rally brigade buy through 3rd parties never knowing who actually makes them. Caged can do all sorts of fabrication, so if you need something they might be able to help.

    We hope to have the K1 on a rolling chassis in the coming month or so and will then advertise it on here and elsewhere for someone to take it to completion.
