All newly made parts were made to original drawings and specifications including the body which was built using Malcolm Sayer’s original bodyline drawings. In fact there is only one detail that is not correct for a 1955 Production Spec car and that is the rear amber indicators, and this is due simply to the fact that the integral brake light/indicators of 1955 were changed after the Le Mans accident the following year.
