Unfinished (unstarted/kit even better) challenger wanted. Alternatively finished project based on 1997 or later donor vehicle... please email any details. 17th October 2004
Nico Human I saw the TripC the first time in the Kit Car magazine dated Dec '89 and have been wandering ever since if it is still in production. After visiting the website I was sad to find out that it is no longer in production. However, I am interseted in one for sale. I am sure there is not one in South Africa.

Bought HKH220L today. A manual 4.2 XJ6 based Challenger today. Drove 180-odd miles on motorways to get it home. Ran really well - phew! And it looks a dream. A well finished car. Is there any collective knowledge/archive to dig out more about individal cars? The kit for this one seems to have been bought in 1990.
10th October 2004
John Abbey Hello, I am completing the challenger purchased by my dad in may 1990. Currently trying to suss out the radiator piping, does anyone know waht hose is used to connect from the water pump to the pipe across the base of the radiator. - as far as I can remember it is mostly XJ6 hoses, and follows the XJ6 layout - webmaster 5th October 2004

Hi Webmaster. It is quite some time since I had an entry into your visitors book. The purpose of this entry is to inform you and other like minded Challenger devotees that the C.O.C. (Challenger Owners Club) have have allocated a club stand at the forthcoming NEC classic car show. We will be exhibiting 5 cars on the stand and look forward to meeting and greeting all visitors to the stand. There has never ever been 5 'E' types on one stand at any NEC classic car show. Members of the club will be on hand to talk about the cars. Look forward to seeing you there . Terry Noble 28th September 2004

I once owned a JPR Wildcat. They are a variation on a theme as opposed to a replica. Wider at the back, round indicators, plastic bumpers etc. In fact, as a result, I got fed up of people telling me it was a replica. They have a box section steel chassis with Ford running gear and fibre glass body panels. Compared to the Challenger they are pathetic. Never pay more than £5k for one. I found mine hard to sell. Its the car that was on E Bay recently by the current owners. Only good thing was that it was cheap to buy, run and service and if your not too fussed about originality then go for one. 22nd September 2004

Challenger wanted - any out there for sale? email or 020 8943 1866. And are there any/many other E-type kitcars? I've seen something called a "Wildcat". From the prices, I suspect it's not as good. But why? And what about others? 18th September 2004

I have got the Challenger technical manual off the web and found to my amazement my new car is in a photo at the end reg. no. 779 FCR, from this can I find when it was built, who by and for whom. I am told it was built for a professional racing driver MAURICE RUNHAM has anyone any info 13th September 2004
steve hanna FANTASTIC. I LOVE IT! I WANT 1.
7th September 2004
Richard shaw Phil, no it is registered as an XJ 6 SPORTS 4th September 2004
Roger Curry I have realised just how hard it is to find a good Challenger so I am looking at the real thing now, but with roofs. Series 2 E Types, especially the 2+2 models can be found for 10-15k. Some have had restorations costing more than the asking price. It seems like a very good time to pick up a bargain classic car. 3rd September 2004

I have a dark blue metallic Challenger that could be for sale.IT has an automatic box and goes like the wind. The engine has been rebuilt, 3.8 type aluminium cam covers are fitted in place of the ugly 4.4 boxes. When I built it some tewlve years ago I fitted a water cooled air coller which works a treat. the interior is in dark blue, leather MGB seats and a genuine e type dash is fitted (which I veneered in walnut) and looks superb. I am now living in Menorca, Spain and the car is in storage in East Anglia. I am tempted to sell it as it needs to be used not hidden away, no silly(low) offers will be considered!!

2nd April 2004
keith are the louvre grills on the bonnet of the challenger meant to have a visual joint round the outside of these ally insert sections or should the joint be filled to conceal this like on real e types . advice needed 29th March 2004

Comment on Iain Clark’s posting
Its great to hear from someone who actually uses their Challenger! So many are either not finished or just used for the occasional sunny sunday outing. I agree that the zinc spray does not provide absolute corrosion protection of the chassis and regular inspection and attention is important. A number of owners have injected wax oil into the chassis members as an additional anticorrosion measure.
I’m not clear what you mean by “dizzy cams”
16th March 2004
IAIN CLARK I PURCHASED ONE OF THE LAST CHALLENGERS WITH THE BROAD FOOTWELL AND BUILT IT IN 90-91. SINCE THEN IT HAS DONE OVER 100,000 MILES IN ALL WEATHERS. APART FROM A SMALL PROBLEM MELTING DIZZY CAMS BEFORE FITTING OPUS TO FIRE IT, THERE ARE VERY FEW PROBLEMS WITH THE CAR. IT IS NOT GREAT AS FAR AS THE ZINC FLAME SPRAYED FINISH WOULD SUGGEST. NEEDS PLENTY PROTECTION ON CHASSIS FRAMES. 12th March 2004
