Dedicated to the memory of the late Brian Archer who fulfilled his dream to re-create John Sprinzel's Sebring Sprite Coupé

 

OFH 175

A Speedwell GT Replica ~ almost!

Back in ....... Speedwell enthusiasts Bill McDonnough of Hardy Engineering and David Groves were looking to build a replica of a Speedwell GT but, there being no coupé top of the Speedwell available, they used an Archers Garage Sebring top combined with a Speedwell Monza bonnet, and called it a Speedwell.

Bill and Dave were subsequently able to acquire a genuine Speedwell GT so OFH was sold to Ronnie Coia who had the car for a number of years. Ronnie sadly died in 2010 and the car has sinced moved on again, this time to Mark Warne of Reading.
