Anyway, it is Ron's Mark 7 that we're talking about here. Ron is an engineer and it shows. He has been, and possibly still is, involved in the construction of the Gourlay Sports Sedans. I have heard that he built his Bolwell on a tight budget, "investing mostly in his own labour." The wheels - steel rims and hubcaps.Note the body mods and how well executed they were. The exterior door handles were push buttons on the C pillar, to reduce weight in the doors. The interior releases were on the console (very TVR as Pete Garvin says). The window glass actually fully drops into the door cavity, the flat glass travels in an arc away from the door frame on its journey into the door. I can't explain it but it is a thing of beauty to witness I'm told.
Ron also did his own upholstery.
Interestingly, both the Mark 7s flanking the car are now convertibles and have been sold interstate. The yellow one (previously purple with pearl steering wheel - featured in Custom Rodder No.4) is Colin Moffitt's old one and is now in SA and undergoing a major rebuild in Wynn Vale and the red one is Allan Cox's old car and now lives in NSW.
