My Father Geoffrey Shrive built 33 of these Shrive Specials at Harlington. Bedfordshire workshops during the 1970's. most went to USA. this car left our workshops and went to Scotland where it remained until last year when it was 'found' in a barn in Carlisle.
The original build involved removing the original standard steel body. shortening the chassis at the back and fitting a custom fibre glass tub.
All the running gear remains original Mk IV.
We have had the chassis overhauled and re-painted (no welding required). bodywork re-painted in 2-pack Bentley racing green. engine removed and engine bay detailed and re-sprayed. cylinder head removed. checked and refitted. engine and ancillaries detailed. New tonneau cover made. walnut dashboard restored. external handbrake nickel plated. new Aero fly screens. new Dunlop cross ply tyres. new rear spring leather gaiters and leather bonnet straps. generally commission and tune the car.
The car is drives extremely well. the engine pulls nicely to 4000 rpm which is the maximum for the six cylinder side valve exhaust engine. the gear change is traditional 4 speed. on the floor to the right of the driver. gearbox driven powered brakes to large finned brake drums all round give excellent braking.
Where ever this car goes it draws crowds. real thirties style with the benefit of fifties reliability.
