My FIA body came from Bruce. It's been modified a little for a number of reasons....however I'm told that the shape as delivered from Bruce measured up well.

Cheers,
Glen

If your refering to John Ohlsen the Kiwi ex Shelby employee Bill, he built two FIA type cobras plus a Daytona. I think both FIA cars are now in Auckland NZ, one of which spends some time on classic race track meets.

Nah, that's not the right OLsen . Plus he spells his name wrong.

Here is my Mr. Bruce slabside. Bruce makes a beautiful and quality body. Remember you only get the body. I used a Factory Five chassis. Everything else you have to fabricate.







Go view Bill D's build log and see a step by step building of a Mr Bruce FIA. Factory Five 289FIA Build

Bill's build is a lot more difficult than mine, but then Bill is a lot more talented than me.

Damn, that's a fine looking automobile.

John I can't believe I didn't think of yours when I saw the original post. Probably my favorite FFR of all time.

I love that car...And I recognized your HSSSS plate from a picture I saw on the Factory Five forum a while back- I'm assuming this the same car, with the Original FF body on it?

I hope to have a project down here in Florida August / late summer. Right around the time I sent the project to him I caught a real bad track time infection and kept telling him to work other other stuff. Making a hole for it now.

Me: "I can put the Miata behind the fence next to the trailer, nobody will see it."
