John D Wood should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The body off pic is one of Derricks. As we ran 1300cc we wanted to loose a load of weight, Space frame was chopped off just in front of the batteries, we had trailing arms to a ford english axle, the body was laminated to the roll cage with the back struts, of the roll cage, supporting the top of the rear shock absorbers.the cockpit sides were ally boxes foam filled so it became a spaceframe/monocoque hybrid, the body could no longer be removed in one piece. the doors were just half doors.

The Corvair....

I'm trying to trace the body off of the Corvair super saloon. Some say it's hiding at a motor dealers somewhere in Leicestershire.....

I know the history bit that Gerry bought it, and broke it up so it wouldn't be out there beating the pants of of Baby Bertha. After all, it was a McLaren M8 CanAm car in drag!

So... anyone know?

DB Motors were involved with the car at one time, it may be worth contacting Martin Dilkes and see if he knows anything...

I've heard a similar thing Rob, I think the body is now black and the current owner has something to do with building V8 engines.
Good luck.
