This is the Tiger Hawke imported into Australia late 1999 early 2000. It has sat in a workshop in Victoria since being imported with very little work to complete it. I have started the process of planning the certification process in NSW with my engineer, the priority being the Torsional Rigidity test of a minimum 4500 NM per degree of deflection, then seat belt anchorage test,seat mounting test, side intrusion bar report. Then on to the build. I am pleased with my purchase and can see clearly how I wish to proceed with the build.

Hi Graham

I saw that your GCS site was trying to find cars, so I decided to email you a picture of mine.

Regards

John

John Hi,

Thanks for the photo which I shall forward to our webmaster for inclusion.

Would you please consider providing more information as I have no previous record of it.

The original GCS chassis number or original owner/builder would help, plus detail of the car: Plus2 or Sport, engine. Also whereabouts we may see your car on the road.

You would be most welcome to join our club. The members are a mine of information if you need help or advice. We have a good social group, meeting up 3 or 4 times a year. This weekend we have a Friday to Monday trip to Street, Somerset, followed by a couple of 1 day events and a weekend tour of the North Pennines in September.

I have attached a membership form for your consideration.

You are welcome to join our Facebook site, it is a closed site but you can join with membership or not.

Regards Graham

Hi Graham

Chassis no. Is.........

I bought the car from a Nicholas Lockrose of Hampshire in April 2005 as far as I can remember. It has been used 6 months of the year then on SORN hibernation from June last year... I have other toys to use eg a Rickman Metisse 5lt Ford lump, and a BAD F355 replica.

I have MOTs going back to December 1995.

The car is registered as  a GCS car, but has a nose +4 Morgan badge and I resprayed it 3-4 years ago. I believe it was originally Bugatti Blue with a red interior, then sprayed BRG when I flew to Portsmouth and drove it home overnight. Unfortunately the paintwork detiorated with the usual osmosis despite being dry stored.  I added green wing piping for a Morgan touch....as seen in photo.  

It runs the original 2lt Pinto Cortina engine and 5 speed, and retains its Cortina suspension. 2 years ago I replaced the standard twin carb. with an updated twin Weber. It does have a rear bench seat trimmed in the same Ferrari beige vinyl with green piping as the front seats as is the dashboard, thick green carpets, black weather gear, “hard” side screens, spare wheel carrier etc.

Now the rub......I live in Belfast so no opportunity to meet up I’m afraid. There used to be another car in two-tone blue in Northern Ireland but I haven’t seen it in years.

The car is in great shape and retains the old-fashioned Pinto growl that I think the modern engines have lost.

Kind regards

John

Hi Graham

Apologies....I just checked and I bought the car in July 2004.

Regards

 

22:05

John,

Many thanks for the info. I will try to track it back and identify the car when I get back next week and I'll get back to you.

I took my car on a tour of Ireland a few years ago, broke two engine mount bolts on one of the invisible, smoothly tarmac covered potholes in the South.

Have got the Webers running smoothly? The webcon kit for my Zetec was wrongly jetted and took a while to sort.

Regards Graham

Hi Graham

I forgot to say that I think my car is a very early example as the rear lights have a moulded in pod on each side into which the stop and indicator housings and lens are attached, not the separate chrome tubes seen later.

The car came with a very bent rear matt finished bumper, as seen on many Hawkes, and a good quality front bumper cut into 2 halves Escort “Mexico” style, as can be seen in the picture....I added a full width good-match chrome bumper to the rear, both tbh of unknown origin. You can see 1 of 3 white spots, either side of the bonnet and on the rear deck, as I’ve used the car on track and for hill climbs.

Kind regards

John

Hi John,

 I've checked through my available records and found nothing.

Whilst the car is most likely a GCS there is no record of that registration or the seller in the GCS ledger and no record in the HOC owner or car listings.

The chassis number you gave is a VIN number and doesn't relate to a GCS chassis number which would be a simple three digits, dash, S or 2. eg. 023-S.

This would have been stamped on the left front chassis rail.

 

GCS records go up to 1999 when the project was sold to Tiger Racing and then, in 2003 to LCD.

Hi Graham

Really appreciate your help.

I can’t see any stamps on the chassis as it’s been painted, but I’ve added a few photos...perhaps you’ll recognise the chassis construction? The V5 lists the VIN number only. I believe the car was originally built 1991/92 from memory. What research I’ve done of the kit car market satisfies me, having followed the various Tiger and LCD sales, and having had kits for 25 years, that is an early GCS. The other “replicas” I checked in the distant past were the “Davrian/Darrian”(?) and the Moss/Spitfire-based car but mine is 100% like the Hawke that I’ve seen at eg Stoneleigh.

I’ve previously owned the following cars...Bulldog, Marlin, Quantum Sports 2+2, GTM Rossa, Eagle Jeep, Midas Excelsior, Clan Clover and currently have a BAD F355 twin turbo (6 years), a Rickman Metisse 301 small block (11 years) and my Hawke 2ltr (12 years).

 

Kind regards

John
