I was hoping that other Vixen or Tuscan builds or others in use would post on here..

Especially competition ones.

Much appreciated!

Yes I thought so as well the engine has been fully rebuilt by Simon who used to be the race team engine man and now he owns the garage and builds TVR engines and repairs them from all over, if ever you are in Blackpool just phone the Savoy Garage and come and have a look around.

Such a very long shot ,but decades ago i nearly gained employment at a glass bending premises at Gallows Corner,Romford ,Essex.
I did some research into the company and they specialised in such things..

Other than that . that Reubyn chap who prepares TVR Racers will be sure to know of acquiring one..
Just found out that Ricky Evans Motorsport make laminated windows from blanks on jigs ,
Located Tamworth Staffs ..Carriage avaialble also..
Maybe they can help
Tell them that Llewellyn Imp Motorsport recommended them to you.

Is that possible?

However, we have been able to follow the history of the car here for many years and that was/id great. Thank you very much! Let‘s hope the new owner will keep us informed about the future of the car here in this thread as well. smile


@1969tuscan
Is there a follow-up project?

Sorry to hear that, Keith, it's been a fascinating story and thread.
You can certainly be proud of your role in that Vixen's life, but age and inflexibility catches up with us all eventually!
All best wishes, Rik
