Without a doubt, this has to be Teal of the Week number 164

This is how Nick tells the tale.  

La Grande Arrivée . . . more or less
 
As you know I am completing the build of my Teal 
 
I am building it to the current IVA (individual vehicle approval) regulations, blunting edges ,seats with headrests etc-etc and I’m not looking forward to the arduous and expensive test
 
I have just been refreshing my knowledge of the procedure for registration when I stumbled across the regulations for reconstructed Classic vehicles.   (Reality strikes ! …Ed)
 
 

I bought the unfinished T35 last August from Les Grice who purchased the kit new himself on the 9/6/1990

Thats right he has been building/ storing it for 30 years

The drivetrain of Marina 1800 (MGB) engine four speed box and modified Marina axle had all been fitted but no brake lines or wiring. Alloy body fitted and painted

First job was to remove the body to fit brake pipes and wiring loom and collapsable steering column

Custom exhaust, new dash, and instruments, hand brake, triangulated seat belt mountings, and new alloy floor and seat area panels

Currently planing on the body back on in two weeks

Building to IVA spec then may make some period changes

to follow are some images

Could possibly be a Teal ?

Looking quite like a Teal !

 

Absolutely a TEAL !!!!!                                                                                                                                                              More of the same, no doubt about it, it’s a TEAL.
