Hej Jacob,

Jag har sett några i Swedols katalog. Har inte kollat måtten exakt men det ser ganska nära ut jämfört med original serie 1 Bagh.

Hälsningar,

Stig

Sorry for Swedish only but the company i refer to exists in Sweden only and the website is probably impossible to navigate for non swedes.

Yes i'm trying to do an "U8-replica" but with an PSA- T16 engine. And this with red-paint.

But i haven't come so far in the restuaration of the chassis:



I'm trying to complete the car to the summer but we will see... Smiley

Yes, around 15cm longer and around 19cm longer wheelbase.

But in all meanings, it's a replica and not exactly the same. I will only do coilovers and new engine and lenghten up the car with 8 cm.

My other bagh that will be an pure race-car. And is finnished around 1-2 year from now is my V12 project.

That project will take form as soon as my bagh u8-replica is finnished.

Hi Jacob,

I guess you have the BMW V12 lying around otherwise I would definately recommend the Jaguar V12 for such a project.

Hej Jacob,

Vore kul att titta lite på Ditt projekt Smiley
Jag hör av mig nästa gång jag är i trakterna. Tror kanske inte att det blir med Bagheera men vem vet.
På bilderna ser det ut som om det är din 75:a Du håller på med. Stämmer det ?

Hälsningar,

Stig

Ja det kanske vore något. Hoppas man har kommit längre än vad man har just nu då, det ska skrapas lite till nu sedan ska jag på med epoxy. Varför inte, hur går det med den förresten och vad har du för modell?
Det stämmer nästan det är en -74:a

Du kanske har någon bild?

Hi Jacob,

The one you are working on is DTH531 then.
I thought it was the -75 because it had the steel side panels in the luggage compartment.
My -74 is open all the way out to the fibreglass.

My -74 passed its test in august and I got a few hundred km. in it before the winter (or rain period) started.

Here are some pics from an event I attended: http://www.jec-sweden.se/images/Sportvagnstraffen/album/index.html

Nice pictures, but pictures and meetings like these makes me loving Matra more and more, because everywhere (on every meeting) you can see bags of MG B, MG A, Triumph TR4, Spitfire, Mercedes SL (W107), Corvette, VW Beetle, etc. - you know. Every a..hole who wants to be interesting is simply buying one of these cars and have no knowledge about it in fact.

Thanks,

And yes I do also love the Bagheera shape. Even though it is mine on the pics I think that it holds up well against the others. Maybe it will be more apreciated in the future. It is already very rare.
