| | Geoff's KVA Rebuild Log
It's been suggested that I should belatedly start a log of the rebuild of my KVA C-type.
I have been dreaming of one day owning a GT40 since I attended Le Mans in 1967.
It was only as KVA/GTD appeared on the scene, that I realised that it was a possibility, but still beyond my finances.
However, last year, the situation changed, and after discussing it with my wife, we decided on a budget, which would allow me to buy a basic replica. I wanted one that required finishing, tidying or uprating.
Tony Hunt warned me off, saying it would be an expensive way of doing things........How right he was, but all my fault.
After a month or two, I found 'my' car in Bristol.
One look at it and I was in love again.
Basically, it was roughly as I would have built one myself, and just needed tidying and one or two things changing to suit my views of how a GT40 should look.
It turned out to be a (So far) 11 month rebuild.
The car as I first saw it:
KVA - 302 - Renault 'box
