celes1 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Special Saloon Space frame.

Good images Spec-R that show what amazing work Cyril Malem achieved fabricating this one off chassis and F1 race car chassis's in the 1970's.

When will you be starting the restoration, I would imagine the bodywork will need to be done before the chassis work is started, so everything is aligned. A lot of dirty work to come, but will look great when done.

As some of the other forum members indicated, the chromed/plated suspension parts would certainly look good powder coated or nickel plated and alleviate any metal weakness that is caused through possible chroming. We are all looking forward to the stage by stage procedure of this refurb on this very rare race car.
