    Strato polonez from Poland

    Hello all.I'd like to show you my Stratopolonez replica design.We build everything from scratch, having at hand the original components of Lancia Stratos crashed during the Polish rally in 1978 by Andrzej Jaroszewicz.We took the measurements and built the frame, suspension for Gerry from HawkCars.The engine is from the Alfa Romeo 164 3.0 v6 12v.
    I invite you to facebook on https://www.facebook.com/polonez2500racing a lot of stories about three Polish Lancia Stratos and lots of photos from the construction site.

    Impressive work! Imagine having access to a crashed Stratos!
    The rear suspension can't be standard Hawk can it? The lower rear cradle was wider in the Hawk, with shorter wishbone?

    It's running an Alfa 12v Chris, so the dimensions of the (lower) chassis rails have to be wider than the original Polonez/Ferrari engined Stratos. Hence the use of Hawk suspension.
    It's very similar to what I'm working on now.

    Very interesting, a replica of an FSO Polonez that was used to re-home the running gear from an original Stratos, driven by Andrzej Jaroszewicz that crashed (and was totalled) on the 1978 Poland Rally. Looks really good

    The Stratopolonez was before its time, when you think about similar cars that were to come? (6R4, T16 etc. 6R4 mostly)

    It just seemed such a bonkers thing to do at the time. Great ingenuity.

    That's an interesting project you have there, Its impressive. The LB that I am currently building is going to end up in the polish colours, Red/ white roof etc.. never have managed to find that much out about those cars. so I am intrigued.
    Keep up the good work.

    Seems the Polish Department of Sport bought three Stratos. Wasnt Andrzej Jaroszewicz's father the prime minister at the time?

    It is one of three Lancia Stratos, purchased in 1976 by ​​the Department of SportFSOOBRSO. There were two Lancia Stratos rally, and one Stradale.These cars drove Andrzej Jaroszewicz, who previously drove a Fiat Abarth 124 Spider.

    You would think that it would have been a worse accident to make it not worth repairing Tom?
