G'day lads
I'm fishing about for a car for next years Tasman Cup proxy series and I thought Lex Davidson's '64 Tasman series Cooper T62 Climax would make a nice entry.
Is anyone aware of a resin body shell available of the T62

Cheers
Alan

Having done some further research I reckon that the T62 was the tasman spec version of the T60.
Would I be correct in this assumption.

Alan I don,t know of any one doing this body. You are right the body work is from the "63 T60 with a few mods.The T60 needs the intake "hump"added to the side and the 4 pot exhaust on the other side.
I have a mould for the T60 and for the exhaust for the FFP and could mould the "hump" from one of the other Tasman cars. The lot would then only need to be glued up and a little filler added.

From what I am told you assume correctly.

Phil is right about the T60 being a straight forward conversion.
