Bout time you showed up!
Could it be -as driven by Rob Mason-
as opposed to built by?
That's my thought on it! To my knowledge, he only ever raced the one spaceframe Imp-powered Imp, which was the Ernie Woods car. I went up to Leicester with Woody to buy the car from the Leavers (who ran it as an 850) as a roller complete with a Knight 5-speed, and put Woody's 1-litre, which I built up from a blown ex-Homewood Bevan motor, into it.
The car was a bl***y good effort by the Leavers father and son for a homebrew, but lacked triangulation round the front end. However, Woody crashed the car at Brands, and I had John and Ronnie Woods (no relations) repair the car with a much-improved front end to the spaceframe. Then Woody broke his wrist, and I suggested that Rob could fill in whilst he was recuperating. For the results, see here
I've got (somewhere!) some pictures of Rob having at David Enderby's Karmann Ghia at Thruxton in the car, which I will scan and post if only I can find them! And remember, the KG qualifies for this forum because it was originally built for, and used, a one litre upright Imp, and later used an 1120, before it ever became BDA powered!
