Just get out your wallet.I'm sure you could go to the Fruit Farm and Stanley Mann will provide you with the basis for the rest of the conversion.

A number of years ago one of the big dollar classic car clubs did a tour through Alaska.There were 3 Bentleys.One was a coupe very similar to this one .It's body was metal and not the Weyman style coachwork.Very mean looking English car!

The Weymann system comprises an ultra-light wood framework with special metal joints so that timber does not touch timber. Small metal panels are inserted between the fabric and the framework to make rounded external corners. Straining wires are fitted to hold the doors in shape when they are stressed by acceleration or bumps. The frame is then covered with muslin over chicken wire with a thin layer of cotton batting used to span large open areas and over this a top layer of fabric, usually a pigmented synthetic leather, is placed. Any exposed joints in the fabric are covered with aluminium mouldings


These "special metal joints" just seem to be bits of aluminium flat strap in T, L and V shapes with appropriately drilled holes.



Maybe I should look out a mid-90's BMW 850 or 750 for a couple of thousand quid and have at it ;-) would have to finish my Modified first though.

I dont know, it's very cool, but I aint feeling it. Assdragger, bobbed fender disproportioned top, extended front, sidemount...it is a sweet car for sure but I cant say its on my wish list.
Unless it picks up chicks and comes with left hand steering.

Seeing it close up it had masses of "presence". It looked incredibly powerful with an impression of speed. To me, it was much more impressive than the Bugatti Veyron across the hall.

That car has been on my TOP TEN list forever. If I win MegaMillinons tonight it will be mine and free rides will be given to HAMB members. Bob
