06-27-2011, 09:07 AM
The first Vixen (VX117) made has been moved from the Annex at the High Speed Triumph Research Laboratory to a restoration Shop.

The Vixen's owner has chosen Joe MacInnes' Chris' Restorations to do the work. The frame has rust issues.

This car, like other early Vixens, has an MGB engine.

Would be a great edition to the "British Invade Gettysburg" show. Would look good between the 2500M's.....

Indeed it would (will). Sadely, my good friend John (Twosheds) who made the inital post has passed on. See Basil's announcements for further info. The car had occupied one of his 2 sheds for last few years. I do know the owner and will ask him to update me on the progress of the restoration so that I may pass it along.
