Writing that refurbishing a leather seat of a 404 Pug is the same price as a Jag's MK II one did not bring me many compliments… Nice new avatar, Mike! Congrats.

I understand the 1979 Martin Bros. CC 007 is up for sale. 150k Euros. Only needs electrics to get it going again.

Dont believe what is said in the adverts before checking! I seem to remember she has -or had- a Grp2 HTP when at Spa and was fitted with three DCNF's (#14). High standard of building. Owner was Paul C-G right?

I stand to be corrected but there never was a MKIII. There were facelifted MKIIs. And I think I know that car, it can run as Grp2 with the DCNFs and if its HTP says so it's the car that ran with MRL. Spice did enter a Capri as a GP2 in the late seventies/early 80s in the TT.

The advert states it's a new build from Ric Wood currently in GP 1,5 form and could be reverted either to Grp1 or Grp2. Raced at Spa Classic 2015 for the first time where I saw it. Are all the infos found in Jeremy Walton's book accurate?
Was Spice's GP2 a 3.0 Essex or the first try with a 2.8 Cologne?

Fair enough. I was just referring to the popular nomenclature.

I can't answer that one since my JW book is at home but yes I realise it's a replica. I was simply pointing out that it is based on known facts.

There was a Group A 2.8 mongrel ex Belga chassis entered in the '82 TT.

Yes James you're right again tanks for correcting me. Of course it was already Group A sorry for the mistake. About the lightweight shells made I read somewhere that Ford supplied MkII fist as Peter says then MkIII and sometimes compete kits to convert a MkII into a MkIII. Just hope this point hasn't been covered in one of the fifty pages of this fascinating thread!

The Gerry Marshall Triplex Capri was a MkII with the later parts applied when they became available. I believe the early CC cars were the same. In fact I also think I read somewhere that they were originally 1600 shells.

From Jeremy W's book the parts to convert a MkII into a MKIII was a request from the marketing department to promote the new model. Few differences in fact but the aerodynamics were improved. He also wrote that the complete body shells were said standard but much lighter when checked.

The MKII/III Autocar went for £ 58 650 at GW Bonhams auction if I'm correct.

Again, I don't think you could build it for that price. Someone has a bargain.
