Remember Dinky? Dinky started life as one of the rare Mk.4 coupes. There were a few of them, I remember a Peugeot powered one getting around Sydney. Anyway, this one lived in Northcote, Melbourne and in the hands of Peter and Judith Jones attended everything Bolwell that was going in the seventies. Funny looking things the coupes with their gull-wing doors. This is what happens when you make a hardtop out of what was designed as a roadster. Garrie Cooper did the same thing with a one-off coupe version of the Elfin Mallala which became a rather famous racer and I'm sure was at the recent Phillip Island historic meeting. Peter used Dinky in this guise in competition and on the road for a very long time.
From where I don't know, he acquired a Mk.4B body and below is how Dinky turned out to be in the end.
This photo below is that very body sitting on a trailer in a backyard in suburban Adelaide where it was taken to flop a mould before the Dinky rebuild took place. Lots of procrastination eventuated and eventually the body was called back to Melbourne before the moulds were made.
Peter did get to use Dinky in its new form but died at an age too young to be fair quite a few years back now.
