GT40 replica build South Africa

The chassis looks like the early KVA chassis. The front suspension was the complete front axle from a Ford Cortina Mk3. The rear suspension was either Granada trailing arms or fabricated trailing arms. When you are ready to roll get rid of those tyres and get some Avon cr6zz. the cooling with one fan looks a bit inadequate. Good luck with the project.

Hi Etienne I also have the same car and also want to upgrade the front and rear suspension and steering . I would love to know what you are going to do .I'm struggling to find a good solution for mine ?
Cheers

I know of at least 1 KCC in South Africa that was upgraded to full trailing arm suspension (rear) but that requires a lot of fabrication skill and effort.
Not impossible, but lots of work. Basically building half a scratch chassis.

I don't know where you are based but Mick Sollis can supply Southern GT front and rear chassis upgrades.

I have known of this car for 3 years and owner was nice enough to wait for me. Kept it quiet for fear of losing it. A lot has been done such as powder coated chassis, ceramic coated headers, engine is freshly rebuild ultra responsive, all cooling lines, fuel lines, brake lines, bushes, rod ends and ball joints are brand new.
