    There's Matt H's new Hawk with Stratos suspension, but that has many many mods:

    To get it on the road and enjoy without much more expense than a normal kit? You could then upgrade to the real bits over time.

    I'm with Norm, also if it was built in the 70s by Lancia at the factory then it's a Stratos, anything else is a replica, don't matter whether the chassis is correct or the tub is steel with correct suspension and engine, it's still not a stratos and never will be. If I had enough money to build one with a "proper" type chassis and steel tub then I would forget that push things a bit further and buy a real one. They are for some bizarre reason far more available to buy than a replica which very very rarely come to market.Im holding out for 100,000 for mine when I sell it.:-)
