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.

TG87/1 was a continuation car with a 2.8 litre Hart engine built by Ray Rowan for David Render. Only ever used in hillclimbs, some evidence of this can be found by searching on www.resultsman.co.uk

It had full Toleman style bodywork with a plain red paint job.
