SHELL

This Rothmans replica was built from the ground up and is virtually a brand new car. The shell was subject to a full back to metal restoration and was painted by "RacePaint" based in Melbourne Australia. All mechanicals and running gear are brand new. Virtually every nut and bolt is brand new, with new parts being sourced off the shelf or being specifically tooled locally to ensure a faithful replica of Ari Vatanen's 1981 Escort
