GT4 Lightweight - 1972

Name: John Bonnett
Location: Whiddon Down
Reg: UXJ 228L
Model: GT4 Lightweight
Year: 1972

I have built up a steel skeleton GT6 body frame from scrap sections and fitted aluminium panels that I have hand formed using traditional methods; English Wheel and gas welding. I have taken a bit of licence with the bidywork, particularly the rear end and bonnet. In the interest of lightness it is being powered by an uprated 1500 Spitfire enging running on twin DCOE40s.

To be continued........

Update - My raison d'etre was to build a lightweight GT6 that would be pretty and handle like a Lotus 7. The result has exceeded my expectations in every department. I absolutely love this car.
