Dave Brown in NZ is making good progress with the final stages of the body.
Here's a comparison of the new body and a period shot of Lofty England sitting in XKC 003 at Le Mans
The rear body without the rear lamp plinths which didn't appear on a C type until 1952
The famous "letterbox louvres" take shape
The steel front bulkhead showing the characteristic horizontal swage.
The interior, note the slimmer transmission tunnel and floor panels mounted on top of the chassis rails compared to the "production" C Types
