    It says a new bodyshell. If that's the case, it's not the original car, it's a replica.

    That car is owned by a friend and his father (both called Peter!). It's atop-quality restoration and I don't doubt it's flawless. However, not much originality left!

    They're telling it like it is with this 'TOTAL' PCA car, so no problem.

    It's when something is presented as a piece of history, when all that's left is the V5c, or less...

    Wouldn't the Hawk stuff bolt up to the replica stratos tub? Excuse my ignorance on the Hawk cars for a second, but I thought the chassis was almost exactly like the original, it just used a fiberglass roof and body panels?

    Re: Stratos Bodyshell

    Some bits will, some won't, some bits need different sized bushings but why would you want to? If you've got a steel shell/chassis then where's the point fitting anything other than the right parts? Otherwise you're just devaluing the new shell?

    If was actually possible to fit Hawk suspension to an original Stratos or vice versa, you would have something that looked a little like this. Don't believe the hype!
