GRP, heavy, look dreadful.

There's a reason why they never took off and Meharis did. There's also a reason why Meharis are ABS not GRP. And there's a reason why the GRP Mehari copy is slow. GRP is great for boats, terrible for cars.

VanClee is an belgian kitcar on 2cv base. I never liked their body styles. Looks like some rests put toghether. They also made buggys on vw base.

There's a £400 D*lly up the road from me. Complete but not running. Not terrible either.

He breaks them down into bite-size pieces, even disassembling engines in order to maximise profit.
Seems that he's not yet familiar with the breed, judging by this listing on eBay for a '425cc' cylinder head... :roll:

p.s. A current offering from the Oxford Abbatoir...
Here for sale is a manifold and Solex 34 pics carb assembly with ram style intake originally made for Citroen 2cv Kit car/Special........RARE PART..
.
There are many good reasons why this would be a 'rare part', I'd reckon. :)
