I know these aren't as widely available or as reasonably priced as a sevenesque type, but this would be a great way of getting a shorter wheelbase to fit the Jago and getting the driver low and in the right place in profile. "Just" section (or is it channel?) the Jago over it!
I have visions of yanking off a thoroughly beautiful Sylva J15 body (that's what the above chassis is from) and lowering a Jago body from the rafters, chopping bits off as required, should take no longer than a couple of hours, right?
I know you said you wanted front-engine, rwd and that's how owner-types are, but "my" version would be immense! Sylvia's handle incredibly by all accounts, nice light sigma or K-series in the back? Crack on!
So yesterday I go for a walk up to the farm after 4.00pm as I needed a bit of head space, and also to chat to mate Fil about various things.
A;so spoke to Ian the one farmer about something I am trying to get sorted.
Then a bit further on the way home, still in the mini-village and about 600meters from home I chatted with another “neighbour” who always has a car or bike build on the go, currently restoring a CJ7 for his wife.
Told him about the Eagle not soaring, and he immediately offered me his trailer to use.
I would prefer to have found a trailer up North that needs repatriation down South so that Fil only tows it one way.
This should do just fine if I fail to find something to use up in Scotland
Nice trailer - going to weigh 600Kg or so plus same for rolling chassis and parts so call it 1.2 tonnes well within the 1.8 tonnes max for a Galaxy www.parkers.co.uk/ford/galaxy/estate-2000/23-silver-5d/specs/ Galaxy weighs 1.6 tonnes so at 1.2 tonnes nicely within the 2/3 advisory limit on towing as well. MPG wont be great but a nice gentle tootle should keep it in the mid 20's Sweet. James
p.s. those seats are often heated so keep you nice and toasty
PPS I should have said 75% not 2/3 ! having a moment.
