Hello,

Found my dad a fathers day present a couple years ago, a nice 69GT with no rust on the shell. Didnt have an engine or trans but that didn't matter. My dad's Ron Mistry and has quite a collection of parts.

We had all the bits to build a Lotus Twin cam (STD valves) and had all the pieces for a 3-rail close ration gear box.













After she came back from a re-spray and minor body work. Also had the the North american turn indicators on the front covered













More to follow

Looks like you have a nice build going on there and you are certainly the right guys for the job, Ron was my parts man/god on Broadway when I ran my 67 Mk2 Lotus Cortina from 1973 to 84. Good luck on the build.

As of last month we are getting a few issues sorted before the inspection





































After the inspection is complete, we will drop her off to AAA collision and have the green flash painted on and a few touch ups cleaned up then add new stainless steel bumpers added.

No kidding!

Quite the build and even though a few (very few) will be upset that it is a GT with a Twin Cam - I'm certainly not since I have an S2000 engine in mine - and this will be great when finished.
