The heydays of the 1960’s produced a plethora of beautiful, iconic cars which have undoubtedly shaped the way we look at the world today. Stunning, flowing shapes oozing style and elegance all in the name of motor sport, or was it more to do with the world’s top manufacuturers competing for the content of our wallets and bank accounts. Either way we have been left with a rich legacy that the kit car community continues to feast upon.
Those Le Mans winning classic cars have seen something of a renaissance recently with BMW Z3 based kits enabling a combination of classic looks and modern economy, safety and features. But turning your kit into a something more than a high days and holidays show car requires a level of finishing and detail beyond which the basic kits offer. We discovered this through our own experience and, having our own fabrication facilities and engineering expertise we developed both practical and cosmetic improvements which can help to turn your beautiful kit into a practical car that is as happy at Sainsubury’s (or Lidl) as it is in the garage under its protective cover.
We are pleased to continue to offer our own range of engineered developments which have been designed turn that classic 60’s style tourer into a striking, solid, complete and eminently drivable car. Take a look at the attention to detail, in terms of finish and purpose, which we have created through a labour of love. Our range of appearaance and functionality enhancements are available to purchase in the Grassbank ‘Market Place’.
Our desire to improve the end product remains constant and we aim to share with you new features which improve both the car’s looks and its functionality. Developing these products isn’t easy but buying them can be. Our website, gives you the opportunity to browse and order any (or all) of the items that we have developed along with a couple that we have chosen (such as the dished wire wheels) because they just weren’t available in the general market place and provide the finishing touch to the car.
Our electric side windows, which use the original BMW glass, replace the standard sliding perspex windows of the coupe kit. With their polished stainless steel frames they add enhanced usability alongside great looks.
Our bodyform rear window was developed by us to make the car fit the era rather than have the body made to fit the available glass. It is possible to retro fit our rear window to your car, replacing the MGBGT rear window and utterly transforming the appearance of the car. Don’t worry about that beautiful, expensive paint job, our window can be made to fit without the need to have the Bodyshop on speed dial.
Please enjoy looking around the site. If we haven’t already done so we soon will add a couple of sentences on each product’s page describing why we felt it was necessary to develop that particular product. Some times it isn’t obvious so please read on.
And don’t forget to check back every so often to see what’s new and what we’ve put on offer as the deal of the month.
