    Yip.. another body can be made but each body is one off and will have its slight differences just like all the 315s cars are totally different. Here we are making a body we like its not a carbon and by no means perfect. .

    The chassis is from the ferrari 400 with all the suspension,steering, brakes etc we trying to keep as much of the 400's parts as possible as this will be a get in and off you go no team needed to start this one lol..
    We not trying to copy and make everything identical its a Ferrari 400 with a hand made body.
    We wana just get a little feeling of what its like driving a 315s just a little. .lol

    Thanks for following the build glad to share this experience with everyone. ..

    So from sunny South Africa keep watching..🔨🔧🔨🔧🔨

    Great, how much would a body and chassis cost? (doors, trunk, hood, seat frames, dash)

    Thank you

    Exactly the attitude to have, loving the workmanship.

    Fantastic work! Question is that epoxy prime and then you skim coat filler from there ?

    How much would you sell the body for?

    Where do you find the windshield?

    Thank you
