It's all most ready to go after a complete refurbishing.
We have recently been in touch with a man in Australia that has chassis No 3.

So an update on the original 9 cars from our perspective.

No 1 Not seen or been in contact, gentleman posting as RTH on the thread.

No 2 In our workshop together with one of the 3 continuation cars of Ray Rowan.

No 3 Located in Melbourne, Australia. Have had recent email exchange and pictures.

No 4 Driftwood sold it to Australia some years ago. Believed to be still with the buyer/collector.

No 5 Located in the UK and have been to visit and seen it in recent years.

No 6 With Norm Marshall as per his posting.

No 7 Believed to be in a Japanese museum. Advan colours. Can find pictures on the net.

Nos 8 & 9 As per other more recent postings uncertain.
