RP4ish should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Looking for Royale RP4 details

Hi folks,
I acquired*a Royale RP4 clone basket case (I'm assuming it is a clone as it is missing a Royale ID plate) and I am hoping a kind soul can help me with some assembly details.* Mainly:**
1) the diameter and material of the coolant*transfer tubes from the engine to the rad.
2) the fastening mechanism to attach the glassfibre rocker bottoms*to the chassis.**
3) has anyone had luck purchasing the book "Nowhere to Hide" from royaleracingllc*dot calm?

Also, if anyone happens to have info on this particular car I would love to hear from you.*
Particulars:* A good copy or an unconfirmed f100 car.
Location: Was raced in western Canada* (mostly Alberta) in the 70s and 80s.* Was sitting in a garage in SW Calgary for close to 20 years.
Engine:* Dodge Colt (Mitsubishi 4G32) 1600 cc. Logbook indicates it also ran a BDA
Transmission: Mrk 8 with Mrk 4 internals
Chassis: Brazed semi monocoque

Many Thanks,

I possess a copy of 'Nowhere to hide' & if you want a copy I suggest you contact the author Paul Lawrence direct as he self-pubishes. I will PM you with his email address.

The production records in the book show that only two RP4's were exported to the USA (none to Canada) when new. Chassis RP4/11, the last example built in 1970, was sold to Eric Hauser. Chassis RP4A/2, from 1971, was sold to Bob Smith.

The semi-monocoque chassis was made from 16 & 18-gauge mild steel, clad in NS4 aluminium panels.

Hope that helps!

Thank you Gentlemen,

Yes, Alan has been very helpful! I guess I posted here as I don't want to "wear out my welcome" with him.

I will contact Mr. Lawrence!

And I'll check out the Royale Facebook Page.
