Hi Scott would you mind taking some measurements from your monocoque for me?

Parmaynu,
Scott, not going to be able to get back to you for a few days so don't get mad. Check out the Manx Club Facebook page and see what Bruce and many others are doing in Baja right now.

With Big Bear rapidly approaching, I finally found a weekend where I'm not doing something that takes me away from the garage. So, I started rubbing out the monocoque today to see what I'm working with. The paint is thick and pretty beat up, but, it is what it is. I doubt it'll be running by Big Bear, but I'll still bring it along for display purposes.

What a great photo Nelson! Thank you so much for posting it!!! I'm still hopeful that Jack Jensen's son (who is most likely the passenger in that photo) uncovers some more.

When I was at my one and only Manx club meet I saw a red car kind of a cross between a Monocoque and a early Manx had a opening hood and whole car seamed to have just a little smaller look to it. It was very nice I asked around and others not the owner said two were made? Does anyone have any ideas were or what or if one could be found?...Thanks

There is one in the Lompoc area (soon to be on the east coast from what I hear) and another in the Reno area. From what I heard from the owners, neither is for sale.

I don't think that's a monocoque. Looks like a meyers opening bonnet kit on a floor pan manx
