>From what I remember, the first attempt was on a fwd coupe that had been
stolen and recovered without engine or running gear. Some of the panels were
said to have come from David Sutton but I suspect that they may have just
been used to provide patterns. The engine and transmission from a 200T were
fitted, along with seats from a Ford Escort. I saw picture of an Ur-q
undergoing the work but never heard of the final result. A couple of weeks
ago I heard a rumour of a Dialynx shortened Ur-q shell for sale in West
Yorkshire - mid you, I was also told of a six-speed gearbox in the same
conversation and that didnt exist...
