A detuned version of the Kent engine was also used in some Ford Fiestas and even Pintos. and parts are readily available.

Tan top has never been used on the car. The car also has a tonneau cover (flat cockpit cover) that can be half-opened so that just the driver's side is open. The side curtains/doors slip into the sides of the windshield post and provide excellent wind blockage. Trunk stores top and frame mechanism and still has room for storage.

The car was owned by one other person before me – I purchased it in 2002. It was hand-built in Oregon in 1995 by Bob Yarwood. a former Rolls-Royce Aircraft engineer from the UK. He imported and built a lot of them to spec for customers. The motor has two twin-choke 40 DCOE 151 Weber carburetors. The mechanical components are very straightforward and reliable. requiring only basic maintenance (oil changes. etc. )
