Having made several of the Ford Escort based Clubsprints Alex decided to make a 7 type car that he could actually drive in comfort. Using a modern MX5 as the donor vehicle it would have increased reliability and also be a relatively cheap build as wrecked MX5's were not very uncommon.
Starting with the Escort based car the chassis was widened almost 100mm to take the Mazda independent rear end as a single bolt in unit. The main benefit of doing this was increased cabin room with plenty of room in the footwell. This removed the need that many 7 drivers have to take their shoes off to manage the pedals.
Builders can choose from a variety of extra mouldings that Alex has made to give the car a professionally finished appearance. Quality of the gelcoat is such that the car does not need to be painted making it one of the cheaper 7 type cars on the market. All the mechanicals come from the donor car including the wiring loom and computer and instrument panel.
