NG Henley


NG Henley (Cortina)
I have just been digging through photos and found a good one you may like of my NG/pastiche Henley, that I built in 1990. It was the first chassis and bodyshell produced and completed from Peter Fellows. I ordered it before they had even produced one and it was a very difficult “Birth” as it took me 11 months to get the front wings. In truth I made quite a lot of the bracketry and worked out how all it went together, as it only ever came with the Sierra manual. Believe me they were 2 totally different animals. Anyway it took me 16 months start to finish, I ran it for about 7 months, and then, due to having to buy a pram etc, I sold it in 1992. In 2007 I bought it back from the guy I sold it to. I did many alterations, electric fuel pump,  fitted home made inlet manifold and set of Kawasaki ZZR1100 carbs with bell mouth inlets. Full stainless 2 ¼ inch exhaust with Morgan stainless silencer and twin tail pipe. I had it rolling road tested and produced almost 130bhp at the rear wheels. In September 2010 I sold it to a guy from France, he flew over to the UK, bought it and doive it home, it now lives in Toulouse. The new owner was Mr Eric Thellier. I have attached a photo you can use in your list of models as you wish as it is the only one I can see that is missing from the list. Kevin Brookes 10 March 2019
