Fraser Replica

Post by fgbrown »

hello Impers

This in Hamish who arrives next week to accompany Daisy the Rally imp ( the green one!)
Hamish previously belonged to Tom Blackwood and before that it was raced by Jim Mckenzie who built it as a replica of the 60's Fraser Imps.
I intend to fit metal boot, bonnet and doors and race it next year in HSCC series.
Hopefully Daisy will have a trick engine and gearbox fitted so I can do hillclimbs and sprints.

Why would you fit steel doors and bonnet when all the other hscc cars are running glass doors

I was going to ask the same question Col.
Lighter is surely one way to go faster?

He doesnt say steel though he says metal so maybe its aluminium?? thats lighter and I suppose slightly stronger? maybe, and like how the Lotus Cortina had in the sixties?
Could be Titanium aircraft metal these days? now that would be a first 8)

I take it if your re fitting steel panels your going to race in the 70's series ? If so won't you have to loose the webbers too ?

you are all correct...its the pre 66 Historic Saloon series. I can keep webers but have to have steel doors etc. I even have to have a dash and window winders.
no great shakes but it does look sorted with the GRP items. fredster

If you have to have metal panels and interior it's not the HSCC series you are looking at.

It would be a shame to alter such a nice Imp.
One of my all time favourite builds on here, lovely car.

hi
to race in the CTCRC I have to have steel doors and lids.
but it would be a shame to spoil a pristine looking imp.
maybe I should race in HSCC ?

Is it a friendly series ??

It's what your Imp was built for!
