Lots of TLC required- I'll start a build thread if you like once I get into it.
I need to go OS for work next week so the pressure is on.
I'd rather be working on the buggy but there you go.

Have you ever seen any back seats in one of these?

Thanks Fossil

Yes that is my old yellow one, I really liked that car and was even going to keep it over the Manx at the time, way fewer Mk3's then Manxes on the road!

Mine had back seat belts but no seats, you can fit the same small back seat as a Manx though, im sure BBA down the coast or someone could help you out.

Good luck and I look forward to the pics and story of your re-build

Sweet, they Mk3 Supa Sports was only ever made as a 2 seater though. The one that Jas posted was exteneded to be a 4 seater.

You can put a back seat in the Mk3 but it either needs to be a 2/3 seat for kids of you have to add a lift kit and counter sink it.

This is due to the head room and torso rules.

Looking fwd to the build thread, always good to see an old buggy bought back to full glory.

Yep only the Mk2 came as a 4 seater at it was basically just a Mk1 with an extra 14 1/2" in the body and no change to height or proportions.

I have no idea how many were made

MK3 build pics to show the recessing of the rear seats and I think rollbar pics are posted too.
