Ian has been involved in building and competing with Vauxhall Chevettes since 1976. During this time he has built a large number of Chevettes to group 4 and group B specification following closely to the original cars, but improving parts where ever possible. Several of the cars that he has built recently are being used for the historic rally championship.
Although all the cars used for historic events have been fitted with the HS twin cam engine we have also built cars with the 3.0 litre Vauxhall Omega v6 engine and more recently completed a wide bodied HSR with a 2.3 litre Ford Duratec engine.
The cars that Ian builds are always fitted with either a bolt in or welded in rollcage that he has designed and manufactured in house as he is an MSA approved rollcage manufacturer.
The rear of the car would always be fitted with a 5 link axle location using the original Blydenstein drawings for the suspension geometry.
The front suspension is moved forward as per the original HSR long wheel base body shells to improved the balance of the car and improve wheel clearance and the rear wheel tubs are replaced to accommodate wheels up to 8×18″.The rear turrets are replaced to allow the use of coil over shock absorbers if required, which were a homologated option for the HSR and the transmission tunnel is replaced to allow room for the propshaft and exhaust system. Both Salisbury and atlas axles are homologated for the car and we can manufacture the axle to the customer’s requirements. The axles are normally supplied with thick tubes and fully floating hub.
