Great to find this web site. I have two Challenger kits, the first Jaguar prototype with race suspension etc and one of the last kits to come out of Scotland (incomplete). I would love to find a crashed Triple C to complete my late kit. I might consider selling my 90% complete prototype.

If anybody knows the whereabouts of the jigs and moulds, I would be interested in aquiring them. Alternatively if anyone has a part completed kit, I am willing to create some space in their garage! -see discussion below! - webmaster

Anyone know where I can get a stainless steel exhaust for a Ford V6 powered Challenger?

Excellent site. As an owner of a series one Challenger, I found it very interesting. Running a kit is very different to any other car regarding spares, what fits where and info etc. ( try looking for a Haynes manual on a Challenger!!) any info to keeo them running and people talking about them & sharing knowledge throught sites such as this must be supported and encouraged.

Derek Robinson I was amazed to come across my brochure by accident!!. I have often wondered what happened to my cars - everyone felt like one of my family!!
Building the original Challengers was a dream come true - I wish I could turn the clock back and start again!
Would it be worth the effort?
Best wishes to Challenger owners everywhere!!

Greg Hail to thee oh webmaster...
I have an early flat floor 3.8 and a series three V12 but the former is a coupe (and resembles giant Airfix kit at present) and the latter a 2+2, so no roadster option, but I must admit I am tempted. Does anyone have the 'knowledge' on how to make a mould? I have and can still lay down the glass but the moulds represent something more technical and unless it involves, spanners, screwdrivers and pliers I reach for the 'phone a friend' option. So who knows how to make a mould? Help would be appreciated....

Hi again,
It's sad news I bring to thee oh webmaster! I have this very day been to Timsbury Farm Workshop Units where Avon Coachworks, the last known owners of the moulds traded from. I spoke to the owner Mr Mike Young and his sister. This followed a tip off from another reader of this column. I have to tell you that some 5 years ago, a disgruntled individual (reason unknown) set fire to the unit housing Avon Coachworks. The resulting fire destroyed 9 units, and the fire was so intense that 5 fire units were required, and the heat melted the metal roof beams and, according to all spoken to, destroyed the moulds. "There was *$%^ all left" apart from bills due to owner Mr Young of some £12,000 and other debts. So.... well, it may just be that they did so perish or... were they spirited away? Oh well, the latter is a dream but unrealistic, as the bases were welded to the floor of the unit by the heat. I feel so sorry for the other businesses that were ruined as well as the loss of these moulds. The Warrior regrets to bring this news, however, despite having two E's of my own I have decided to try and resurrect the idea and to conclude... watch this space!!!
I know that Triple C used to regularly replace the moulds, so it is possible that the Avon moulds would have been too worn by now anyway. Why don't you make another set in the same way Triple C did - you have the original "sculpure"! - webmaster

Hi webmaster,
Not in 'tin shed'. According to locals spoken to Avon Coachworks (?) are no longer. No one sure of their whereabouts, or where they were (so how did they know they had gone?). anyway the Quest for the Holy Moulds continues... The Warrior will find them... and will face all the horrors that may lay ahead...
Any info still appreciated...

Could anyone please give me an indication of the likely cost of a Challenger. I recognise that it obviously depends on condition, but ball park figures for poor (ground up tidying incl mechanicals, chrome & trim etc) average (cosmetic tidying) and excellent (ready to enjoy next summer) would be very useful. Thanks.

Hi again,
Not trying to monopolise the site but someone must know where these moulds are....
C'mon guys let's get it going.
My guess is they are still in the tin shed at Timsbury (Avon Coachworks) where they were 5 years ago! - webmaster

Greg Further to my last entry, I note the considerable interest from others and would be interested in discussing the possibilities of a limited one make production car, or a variant thereof which conforms to current legislation. In the interim I hope that someone can direct me to the original moulds and their current owners. Thnaks guys... and who knows what may happen next!!!

I would be interested in purchasing the moulds for the challenger and to re-establish it. I have tried to trace the current owners of the car but without luck. I would be grateful if anyone with relevant and accurate information would contact me on 07796847031. This is a serious request. Phone number corrected!

Thanks for the interesting site. I have owned a Challenger for the last 9 years and have covered over 70K miles in it as my only everyday method of transport. It has been great fun with little real heartache over the years although I did re-build it after 6 months of ownership. An increasing family means that regretfully I will be selling my car next spring. This is a well built and reliable car with many of the original kit's faults ironed out all the details that really make it look great. If anyone is interested in contacting me for help on their project or more information on my car, please do.

I built an early Rover powered Challenger Q95 GFX. Fantastic car and I would like it back as I sold it 6 or 7 years ago. It was red with black leather seats piped in red.Have you seen it? thanks.

I have always felt that the e-type Jag was the most beautifulcar ever made. I would be interested in these kits, if they are still in production.

Tracey Lippett Nice site - there doesn't seem to be much on Challengers on the web, so I was pleased to find this site. My Dad has a Challenger - red, like yours, but with a black interior. Gorgeous cars, and I'm blowed if I can tell them from a real one without crawling all over them first! 11th February 2001
