it is hard to tell from that pic but my educated guess would be a euro. The bulkhead is the same shpe as a Pilgrim but hasnt got the sheet metal on it. I believe on a euro the panels are fitted to said bulkhead by the builder.


Dont hold me to it but I would definatly say a euro 427

Looks a bit like a Viper but again the metal panels are missing from the foot wells, any chance of a better and bigger picture.

If its a Euro or a Viper is it worth buying?

Apparently Vipers require a degree in welding


And GRP work


Oh and suspension design might be useful as they might need to be re jigged.


Other than that i've heard nothing but good things about them :D :D

This one probably isn't a Cobretti Viper, but Bob Busbridge of Cobretti will almost certainly be able to help.

As has been said Osgood isgood toooo.......

Believe me Harry,
You could be looking at a Sheldonhurst, DMS, Mark Phillips, Cobretti or a Brightwheel. They all look the same!

What you need is someone like Osgood or Bob who knows how they go together.

You'll need a lot of determination and confidence.

Sorry to say you will need bucket fulls of both to complete that, don't want to put you on a downer, but that is a mammoth task. :( :(

Harry, just replied prest the wrong knob and the lot disappeared, as Den said Bob Busbridge is your man (Cobretti) the only one now producing this mark. Two pictures of a Granada based Classic replica Viper attached, could be four :rolleyes: !! Your chassis looks a little different re the front cross-brassing, few panels missing at Martin says, The body it with out doubt Viper and may I say very well matured and seasoned!! But looking through the mold looks quite presentable better than most. Not to well up on Granada based as mine is Jaguar but will help where I can. Go to the Viper forum on this site where there is load of info for you there, hope this helps Osgood.

I know of no problems with regard to the suspension. My Viper may have the wrong size springs (and god forbid, shocks) but the suspension is fine, unless any Viper owner can prove me wrong...

Where did you hear about having to re-jig the suspension?

Nothing specific, i've just heard lots of viper owners whining on about how theirs is a 'proper' kit car where you have to build your own parts from solid lumps of metal rather than just bolt a list of parts together like some other, err 'better designed' kits .

Eric,

I wanted to finish my car while i was still young enough to survive the G forces. (Where the hell have the finger, tosser and thumb smileys gone???) :p :p

Perhaps if swmbo can be pursueded the NEXT one will be an ultima, or perhaps a GD T70... More work and less 'Lego'

And you think she will believe you eh ?????:confused:
having been conned once my experience, although small, suggests you wont get away with it a second time mate...........:D :D but all credit to you for trying

Grease Monkey

You might be right, there may not be enough brownie points in the world for this one.

The only solution would be to sell the GD to finance it, in which case it would have to be the T70, as it would have to be topless. :D

In a few years perhaps when Cobs not nimble enough on the corners.

Hi Harry
Is this the one that you didn't buy in the end?
Looks like our front end with the attachment for the cortina subframe.
Hell of a lot more metal on 'yours' tho.
Cheers
