The factory has been charging towards the end of the year with good progress being made of lots of cool cars.

Wayne’s F20c powered Fraser Clubman S is just about to come back to us after paint, I have just had a sneak viewing and it is looking fantastic! I’m not going to spoil the surprise¬†without photos, so you will have to wait until next month to see it but think classic motorsport livery with a modern heart! Watch this space!

David’s F20c powered Fraser Clubman S is back in the shop, has been stripped down and is ready to go to paint as soon as we pick up Wayne’s car. Both these cars are similar in specs but due to the individual nature of Frasers, couldn’t be more different! It looks like the beginning of next year will be full of new Fraser goodness. Something for our customers and our team to look forward to!

Andy’s orange beast “JAFFA” is in the shop at the moment. After years of tender abuse, it was time for an engine rebuild. His fresh motor was delivered the other day and we have just got it up and running again today. I’m not really sure on the details of what’s going on inside this motor but what is coming out is loud, raucous and ropey which is just how Andy likes it so I’m sure he will out and about running it in over Christmas.

Seven’s Ariel Atom is now done and we are just waiting for the paperwork to come through before it can go through compliance. He has already done a couple of track days in it, the last one a couple of weeks ago, his only response was “very, very fast”. This car has a 2L Honda K20a with a supercharger¬†and makes about 300 hp and weighs about 700kg. I’m no mathematician¬†but I calculate the power to weight ratio to be …. lots!

Harold’s Jaguar SS100 replica “PANZER” is coming along nicely, just a few things like speedo calibration and getting the brake relined to improve the stopping power and we are ready for hopefully it’s final LV inspection. None of us can quite figure out why this car is so much fun to drive!

Ben’s highly modified 1960 Ford F100 has had a bolt in underbody K brace designed, fabricated and installed. Because this truck has had independent front suspension grafted into the original ladder style chassis, it is a legal requirement to brace the chassis to prevent twisting the chassis rails. Normally this is a weld in job and requires the body coming off the chassis to do. Ben wasn’t so keen on taking the body off the chassis, so we came up with a bolt in alternative which worked out pretty good.

Over the last few months, the team have been restoring a Fraser that was unfortunately written off in a minor accident. We purchased the car off the insurance company and have repaired the car back to better than it was before the crash. We are now pleased to offer the car up for sale to some lucky sod just in time for Christmas! It is powered by the proven 2L Toyota 3SGE on twin weber carbs. It has inboard front suspension and de dion rear suspension. It is the perfect car for either road touring and/or track days and is immaculately presented in bright yellow. If you think this is the perfect filler for your own stocking, give me a call at the factory and I will happily run you through the details and arrange a viewing.

As this is the last update for the year, from all the team at Fraser Cars, we would like to thank you all for the support that you have shown us and we wish you a merry Christmas and a safe and happy holiday.
