GSM DELTA

Sports 2-seater, sports coupè.

South African design by Bob van Niekerk which lasted longer in that country than here. Mechanics Ford: tuned 57bhp 105E engine, and 100E rear axle with coils instead of semi-elliptics. Coupès had breezeway rear windows like the contemporary Anglia. 100mph and 45mpg claimed: quite a successful club-racer in its day. Subsequently GSM in South Africa came up with the Flamingo, a closed GT powered by Taunus 17M or (latterly) Ford Cortina 1500 engines.
