Unipower GT to be restored

And another Unipower GT is being restored! Howard Darby dropped me a line asking for some information and attaching a few photos. He added: "Dear Jeroen, I hope you do not mind me contacting you but myself, Howard Darby and Bob Neville (RJN Motorsport) now own the ex-Peter Filby Unipower GT. The car at the moment is in the process of a complete rebuild."
I certainly do not mind and hope to learn a bit more about your restoration in the near future Howard, thank you!

This Unipower GT was owned by Peter Filby before being turned into a hill climb car in the 1980s

This photo was taken last week at the workshop where the body is being prepared for painting.

It was a Ford yellow colour when owned by the great Filby. Here at Donington in 1977
