I didn't see them in the manual as well, plus they are not like any of my parts. just a thought, but the 427 was not their only product at the time. My bet is mixed in parts, probably from their "Badlands" Hummer H1.

"The Duchess resembled the MG TD and was based on a chassis of the VW Beetle .

The Saxon and Sebring was modeled on the Austin-Healey 3000 with the option for a hard top . He had a tubular frame and optionally a V6 engine or a V8 engine. A version with widened fenders was called the Sebring .

There was also a replica of the Mercedes-Benz 500 K .

The model Marlene was taken over by Bradley Automotive . He also resembled a Mercedes-Benz of the 1930s.

1982 followed with the Duke a replica of the Jaguar SS100 . The engine was either from Ford or General Motors .

A vehicle in the style of the AC Cobra was also in the range."

After some digging around the internet at all their models, Clearly they shared quite a lot, but I did not see any parts like those.

Gary had ads of “The Classic Family”. Him, his wife and a Duchess, a Duke and a Saxon. All VW chassis with 94.5 wheelbase. The Sebring is a wide fender Saxon and got the first steel chassis. The Cobra chassis is almost a copy. They stretched the Cobra to 94.5 to fit the Sebring chassis with VW 94.5 wheelbase.

The radiator sits in a support hoop on 2 rubber pieces held in on top by 2 rubber pieces in small hold down brackets. Standard radiator mount. The support hoop bolts directly to chassis with welded on angle pieces. The holes in the angles for fan brackets are 24” apart. I have my parts shipping checklists that came in the boxes. I had no steel parts backordered and these don’t look like anything I have. I don’t have a fan or mount brackets for it tho. Hope this info helps

The car is complete, it's about to be sent to paint shop, I was just going over extra parts and these are leftover, was hopeing someone would know what I missed or just extras, I've been hunting parts since 91, just bought another kit that was purchased at same time, it's missing trunk lid, and hoop that doors and windshield bolt to, I'll be hunting down more parts as I get it started

I just got all my parts and went through the manual to compare what I had, and what I might be missing. Could those small angle brackets be for the vacuum motor on the heater box to open and close the doors? I need them and the motors lol.

Got a lot on my plate this week. I 'll look at mine for a P/N, and cross them in the Wells illustrated guide, You'll know they will crappy Chevy ones like everything else they cheaped out on back in the day.

Ok, found out that the long brackets are for electric radiator fan mount, I used a different radiator and fan setup, if anyone needs them they are available, I don't need them,

The Sebring MX was an even wider-fendered version of the Saxon/Sebring meant to compete in the 427 Cobra market.

Those molds in my gallery are the Sebring MX
They are in the Cobra hard top photo in the back
The complete chassis photo is a Sebring with an LS motor
Robert will sell you a car today

It was a nice looking car. If I remember correctly, it beat all comers in the Kit Car Mag skid pad testing, which just about gave Chuck Beck palpitations!

Thanks anyway, but I am all set with my Unique!
