    Looks like they have made a lot of progress since I saw it mentioned last year/early this, nice to see they're serious about supplying kits, so who is on the lookout for a monte now...? Trouble is they tend to go for over 4k now, but I guess you could part it out to get some money back on it.

    Totally awesome, I now also own a US model, a Lancia Scorpion, actually #20 in the production order. One magazine called it a watch pocket Stratos.

    Ah yes, but would you want to butcher it to have a 037 replica?

    Maybe there is a market for Criag et al to produce an 037 version of their chassis.......

    Not #20, it is still fairly rust free, which is unusual for this part of the world. If I found a "parts" car, now that would be a different story.

    That is I suspect the problem now as there are likely to be few of them left as parts cars, and any with the chassis ok, will be used as restores and priced highly as such.

    That is why having a solution such as the Stratos replicas may make sense, rather than starting with a an old chassis.

    That's funny, I just received an email from them (on their mailing list) with the youtube link above. I'm looking forward to seeing it in the metal...and glass.

    Never confuse activity with progress.

    There's such a minimum of the original Monte tub left for a proper 037 conversion Peter. Whatever rust is left in the very small tub wouldn't be much to tackle?
    For example; every 'new' group 4 Escort shell built these days, nearly always needs a small amount of restoration before any fabrication begins, and there's a lot more shell to restore.
