THE ORIGINS OF KOUGAR CARS
Rick Stevens founded Kougar Cars in 1979. although the first (approximately 30) cars were marketed by a company called Storcourt Wells Ltd. He built the prototype in 1976. which incorporated an aluminum body. All the other cars have a fiberglass body shell. Rick still maintains an active interest in the Kougar Owners Club. as its president.
Rick’s inspiration for the Kougar originated in his ownership of a Jaguar S Type saloon. but recognized that it had a scrap value of only £100 to £200. He also realized that a first class sports car could be made by connecting the heavy lumps of the Jaguar together with a simple light weight body and chassis unit.
The sports car design was not directly inspired by any particular vehicle. but Rick admits to having a certain fondness for the Frazer Nash TT replica and the Healey Silverstone. The first car with an alloy body was sold to an American in 1977. but mold’s had prudently been taken from the alloy body and a batch of 5 cars was exported to Australia. The first cars featured a chrome grill. however. this was superseded by a cast alloy grill for a short time. after which a chrome grill was re-instated. albeit with two extra bars in 1979. still used today.
Production of the “Sports“ model has been continuous with about 200 cars being sold over the years. In 1979 a second model. the Monza. was developed which utilized Ford engine components. Approximately 40 Monza’s found their way mainly to the west coast of America. The Monza was eventually developed to take Jaguar components like the Sports and occasionally fitted with Rover V8 and Jaguar V12 engines. also the Jaguar XK engine.
Over the years about 60% of the cars were supplied as kits. the other 40% were complete cars supplied by Kougar Cars. of which 20% were registered as new and contained all new parts from Jaguar Cars Ltd. Some of these new vehicles were sold by H. R. Owen in London. and other distributors.
In 1990. the company Kougar Cars Ltd was wound up and a new company was formed called Kougar Cars (1990) Ltd. In June 1990 this new company was sold to Trent Engineering in Somerset. After trading for approximately 18 months. during which time approximately 6 Kougar Sport cars were built. Trent Engineering went into receivership. After an interval of about a year. the jigs and fixtures for building Kougar cars were acquired by a gentleman named John Killick who advertised and built several Kougars until 1999 when the building of Kougars was transferred to a company in Rye in Sussex which is the current situation.
