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.
