Maroon Swallow Doretti

This very rare coach built body based on Triumph TR2 mechanicals received extensive work to its aluminium body and a concours standard exterior respray. This was a concours winning car on it’s first outing!.

Here it is all finished, assembled and detailed.

More work on panel fitment and then cleaning the old oxidised aluminium and getting it into epoxy primer ready for some bodywork.

Getting on with tidying up some of the pre existing welding, doing some new welds and getting some better gaps.

This is such a cool car! It’s got some pretty ill-fitting panels so most of the work will be correcting that. No rust to deal with this time!
