I recently picked up this tub Seller claimed it was formula vee / as far as he knew. I bought it with some spares and have started the process of trying to figure out what it really is . The confusing part to me is the monocoque chassis. I cannot find any formula v or super vee with this design . The main hoop and much of the suspension arms are nickel plated , the tub is buck riveted together/front inner mounted shocks are dated 1971 decarbon shocks/ rears are also decarbon/bilstien . there was a builder tag on front left side of tub but it is gone . I did uncover a scca brass tag with "73fsv02" under roll bar padding

The car was abandoned with 2 other cars in a garage and the house was auctioned . 30 years ago. I bought it from the son of the buyer at the auction. no information is available about the previous owner .

Open to ideas from the forum . thanks in advance more photos are available.
