Highland Coupe

In the Austin Seven world later long wheelbase chassis are more prolific than vintage ones.

Open sports bodies are readily available but closed cars have largely been ignored by special builders. My friend Ruairidh Dunford and I felt there was merit in designing a vintage-looking sports coupe for the long chassis. We enjoy working together – Ruairidh’s skills in mechanical restoration and my ash-framing complement each other well – so decided on a joint venture to design a car from scratch.

We are now in the advanced stages of construction. Please see the slideshow below:
