Another Japanese Unipower GT

Recently spotted at a Japanese meeting - another Unipower GT. It looks to be a Mk2 and comes with 1968 or 1969 'G'-registration, wide bodykit and 13 inch wheels. The number plate tells us it was originally registered in Bootle, Merseyside, and uses 1340cc power. Could it be an ex-works racer?

UPDATE 5 January 2016: Definitely not an ex-works car, it was built up by Gerry Hulford using a wrecked Unipower GT years ago. More here.

Several Unipower GTs have been fitted with wide body kits, like this one in Japan

  4. No not an ex-works racer, the car went through the workshops of the Lenham Motor company in the late '90's early 00's, the photo there flatters the look of the car!
