Which is the real M3/1101...?

I love the intrigue!

Assuming a LHD to RHD conversion would require a new bulkhead and floorpan, plus RH inner sill for gearshift mechs. This would leve a large amount of old useless tub. I say "useless", but didn't the learned Brian Wingfield once say if you had 30% of the original tub, then you had the original car? If so, we might have be left with either two 1103s.. SHOCK!

Didn't the blue JDC car come 3rd place at this year's Pebble Beach?

Too many questions and not enough answers!

It uses the same floor pan and bulkhead. It's more a case of what is left out such as the seat pans so there is no place for the "normal" gearshift to sit. The major change for the conversion is the steering column mounting and the rack mounting.

Just done a bit of digging and attached is a photo of the original chassis plate as fitted to 1101 showing it's original prototype number of XP103/1.

Also attached for comparison purposes is the chassis plate for 1107 which is in the form GT40/M3/1107. This type was used on all the Mk.III's except 1101.

Crikey, is it just me or is anybody else confused, just how many p1101's are there?. I bet the chap who owned p1101 in post 24 will be a bit miffed, I understand he handed over many quids for the privilege.
