I am trying to collect all 25 cars of the starting grid of the British GP 1955 at Aintree. So far I have managed to create 19 of them out of donor cars or resin and fibreglass bodies. I have:

Mercedes W196: #10, 12, 14 + 50
Cartrix

Maserati 250F: #2, 4, 6, 8, 42, 44, 46 + 48
Penelope Pitlane

Vanwall: #28 +30
Cartrix

Connaught B Type: #34 + 36
Penelope Pitlane

Connaught B Type STR: #32 + 38
Betta & Classic

Cooper T40: #40
AA Bodies

But where do I find donor cars or body kits for the last six?

Ferrari 625: #16, 18 + 20

Gordini T16: #22, 24 + 26

Help and advise wanted?

If it's the 500/625 body you're looking for, there are several available - I think Penelope Pitlane now does it and J. Jones did fibreglass shells.

aerodynamic - Penelope do the Ferrari 500 from 1952/53 (RB31), but as far as I am informed not the 625 from 1954/55. Do you have an article number?

I have earlier on tried to order at Dave Jones, but so far with out any luck. Not even an aswer have I received.

Goeff - thanks a lot for this very interesting link. Unfortunately I have never heard of David Sykes bodies before!

Who can help with a link, web-address or e-mail?
