Thanks Wellsey for sharing these rare photos (and to Dave for uploading 'em). Seeing as weight reduction was the goal (Perspex windows and only one wiper) I wonder whether the front wings were fibreglass or cut-down steel ones to accommodate the smoothed headlight glass?

Hi, it wouldn't surprise me if the whole front end was fabricated from aluminium as there are no seam lines on the wings with a slight outward dish to them plus the grill area treatment. I believe a relation to the driver of this later car posted on the forum some years ago and might be able to shed some light on that.
