Imp Stiletto Silhouette Special Saloon Racer



Imp Stiletto Spaceframe Silhouette Racer  

This car was built by Delta Race Cars for Pat Mannion, founder of Revolution Wheels for the 1980's Wendywools Special Saloon Championship.

The car is a full single seater silhouette racer, spaceframe,  aluminium panels and fiberglass shell held on with Dzus fasteners and pins.

Initially built with a Hartwell Imp engine. Running through a 5 speed Hewland MK9 big layshaft and 1" x 23 input shaft inboard disks and centre nut peg drive hubs. The gearbox is rated at 180ftlbs by Hewland so suitable up to most 2ltr engines.

The car was intially white. Later upgraded by Peter Thurston to a Ford BDA engine along with strengthened chassis and updated suspension settings. Once completed massivly improved the handling and Peter was able to peddle the car around Lydden just shy of a F3 car.

At that time it was re-panelled and a new fibreglass shell formed. Wheelbase std imp and silhouette above centreline of wheels std so meets many race, sprint and hillclimb regulations.

All components in good condition.
