Antique & Classic Automotive
Anyone who knows the fringe car scene soon learns the coded messages of company names, and 'Antique & Classic' means fibreglass copies on proprietary running gear. Founded in 1972, this company essayed copies of the Frazer-Nash TT and SS100 on 1.6 litre VW Beetle chassis. By 1979 it was making inept Beetle-powered parodies of the Bugatti Type 35B, a 1931 Alfa Romeo, and a Bentley-ish pastiche which, even by the firm's standards, was pretty awful. In the late 1980s it was making reasonable imitation 'Jaguar XK120s' and 'SS100s', with a range of engine options from the Ford Pinto 'four' to Ford V8s.
