Martin Hig­gins of Hig­gins Car Dis­man­tlers in Gar­vagh, North­ern Ire­land, has com­mis­sioned shells and pan­els man­u­fac­tured in China. The first sam­ples ar­rived among a de­liv­ery of other car pan­els that Hig­gins also of­fers.

Kerem Us­tunkaya of Parkur Rac­ing and Yag­mur Bostancı of Rain­speed His­toric Mo­tor­sport are part­ners in the pro­ject. Yag­mur says there are a few flaws to cor­rect be­fore they go on sale to Es­cort re­stor­ers.

‘How­ever, were not ex­pect­ing to see the replica bodyshell this ac­cu­rate in com­par­i­son to a gen­uine bodyshell. They are im­pres­sive,’ he says. Andy Tal­bot 028 7086 8814, hig­gin­scar­break­
