FAIRTHORPE ZETA

Sports 2-seater.

Strictly a bomb: the Electron chassis/body set up with a TR3A or a 2.5-litre Ford Zephyr engine shoehorned in; front discs, rack and pinion steering. You could have the power unit to almost any tune, but with six Amals fed by twin SU pumps, what price 137bhp and 120mph? Drive-to-meeting rather than drive-to-work.
