Evening all

just found this forum so have joined up, been very busy in this lockdown period trying to finish off one of my projects which is a Vincent hurricane, I bought this about 4 yrs ago and its fitted with a gt6 engine and running gear/chassis and am now in the final stages of getting it finished thanks to all this time off lately!

this pic is when I bought it, I have since painted it red and done a lot of work on it replacing ll rubbers/boots hoses etc!

ha thanks chaps

I will get some up to date pics very soon, like I say     ive had the car a while but not done much to it in last couple of years as I have been restoring/rebuilding my mk1 Escort, but that's ready now hence why ive been doing the triumph.

I presume you guys know what a hurricane is- for those that don't its a fibreglass body which goes straight onto triumph chassis, ( I think you can stil buy the bodyshells under the name of Caberg Hurricane) the orig car is a 1973 L reg gt6, engine is very sweet as I think its been rebuilt in the past not actually driven the car yet. I have to buy some seats for it, paint the roll bar and install some seat belts then its pretty much ready, cant wait to start driving it

there a rare breed, one came up for sale here in Aus last year must be the only one in captivity here, originally it was listed in Queensland but then listed here in a Vic country city of Bendigo by a trader it sold very quickly for around $30k a good price.

Always liked the Hurricane style

Its the wheels that have caught my eye
What are they from, they look different.

In the "as bought" photo? They look like standard (early) Spitfire/GT6/Herald/Vitesse steel wheels to me. Missing hub caps and in need of a clean up.

Hi chaps, yes they were original old crappy wheels, have some minilite stlye wheels on it now! I am going to take some decent pics of it this week and post them up, I only have a few small jobs to do on it now ie sort out the screen washers, mount the interior mirror and tidy up some wiring, then I need to sort out something for the front grill.
