Work in progress…
When it comes to Mini Sprints, there’s one car to get in my opinion and that’s a Neville Trickett. There’s is an alternative though, and that is Gerry Hawkridge’s Hawk Mini Sprint.
This shell was not originally purchased from Gerry as the moulds had long been sold. We met the person who purchased the mould to discuss potentially buying them from him, however this did not happen.
This shell was purchased from the owner based in Northampton and brought to 70s Car Restoration for completion.
Before starting, we needed to establish the origins of this shell. Speaking to Gerry Hawkridge we shared photos and details of this shell, and Jerry concluded it was “Almost certainly using our moulds!” which means it’s a Hawk Mini Sprint, using the original mould. This was great news!
Upon examination, the shell required additional fibreglass work to meet our standards along with upgrades. You can follow the project over the coming weeks and months.
