  1. Gentlemen, I have the body of this Firefly, purchased from Wm Beattie from Argyle. He used the chassis to make a hot-rod with Riley engine, and I picked up the body with rear wings but no running boards nor front wings The body is now mounted on a 12/50 chassis (extended to suit) and is ready for painting It is a glorious looking car as the script says and now has new aluminium wings front and rear but no running boards I have the picture referred to from Crystal Palace but it is not a good one If the Georgano Collection has more pics I would love to view them and especially if there is one with a hood, because it is currently a struggle to see how we can aesthetically design one Simon Fisher knows this story and is aghast that such a lovely car was junked for the sake of a hot rod If anyone is interested I can send pics of the car now
