Teal of the Week number 32
Ian Foster only built one GRP Teal four seater, and this unique Teal is pictured here with Maggie, Ian’s lovely wife, at the wheel; indeed the car was reserved for Maggie’s use by Ian. Note the unusual and attractive mudguards…
…and comfy-looking bucket seats. This is an attractive and historic Teal, made by Ian in 1985, and Maggie would love to know where it is now; if you know, please email us.
This Teal was later transferred to Bob Jones, who of course created aluminium-bodied Teals. Here Bob Lewis’s dad sits in the Teal. Was it rebodied in aluminium by Bob Jones, then sold? Can anyone help? Wherever it is, it’s a pretty lovely early Teal.
