Sabre bodied SS1

The VIN is readable in the photos Mike. I’ve saved it to the pictures folder on Dropbox under #0076.

210170FB000076. I can’t see the engine number but 2101 is 1300cc.

Coupe body on a 5a chassis.

The coupe chassis of ARF109D is heavily modified - I think I have some pics too from when Dave Poole and I visited.

Coupe body on a 5a chassis.

Apart from the width and length, the floor is totally different between coupe and GTE.

Trial SS1

I’m not sure a trials car needs the rigidity a cage provides - maybe the question was more to do with localised strengthening to prevent cracking etc?
