    The only steel monocoque I know of would be a gto-tech one. They even re make the hubs and uprights!

    Based on the Healey in the background I's agree Chris. It's what he was planning on building when I bought the Hawk kit from him.

    I hope there are not people getting interested in this project, thinking it'll be in the normal kit price range.
    It's got to be three figures and then some?

    It's a little vague as to what's included and there are no pictures of the suspension. I assume that is as per the original car?
    Do we know if this is a scratch built, restored or a GTO Tech chassis?
    A GTO Tech chassis was 50k Euro last time I heard.

    'Project' is probably better than 'kit'.

    You'll notice the stiffener on the underside of the front clam? As an original would and should have.

    Re: Unfinished Kit For Sale

    This is a reply to an email sent asking for more info from Phil Hotham

    My Stratos is a genuine stratos It was built by Marchesi in Italy for me on the original Jigs and tooling and the fiberglass parts where also produced in Italy .



    All the suspension also came from Italy . I have fitted all new AP calipers and discs the brake disc bells I had produced which are correct to the original group 4 cars , tandem stratos pedal box I have a new stratos steering rack , full set of instruments ( gauges ) group 4 dash board , new heater box , blower , full set of Bilstein shocker’s and eibch springs , new gears which are dog gears from Italy , the gearbox is half built , I have drive shafts new CV joints etc.



    The Dino engine is stripped which I have a new Arrow crankshaft and conrods , new forged piston set and all the parts

    To build the engine . There are all the front to back cooling pipes , radiator , weber carbs and manifold , windscreen etc



    There are also all the lights and mounting frames which are all correct



    There are loads of new parts which I have collected that I have not listed I think the car is about 96% complete

    I also have 2 eibach anti roll bars on order which should be delivered in the next weeks or so .



    I also have a Nova and heritage dating certificate documents so it can be registered onto a V5c log book .

    With a stratos chassis number on the documents which is 1974 .



    I have 196 k in the car as it stands



    If its of interest to you a could send you photos of the suspension front and rear hubs etc .



    Hope this is a help and thanks for your interest .



    Kind regards

    Phil
