FVA is here

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

The Bowin P3 tub and the original FVA number 7044 were last in the same place in 1970. It’s a huge thing to see them both in the same place again. Many thanks to Graham Brown for selling it to me and for the awesome rebuild. It really is very pretty. Now we need a new diff for the car and to start assembling it.

This engine was issued to Piers Courage for the 1968 Tasman series in Australia and purchased by Glyn Scott at the end of the series for fitment to the new Bowin FVA. The original specification was minimum 231 BHP at 9000 RPM with a 10500 RPM redline from 1600cc,

Here is a a link to the Bowincars web page about this car
