Autosport November28 1958 1


Bob Hanna told me that two Bucklers were sold in British Columbia. You have one currently listed with Rod Mclellan

Read " A Letter from Canada" from Autosport, Feb. 14, 1958 This article has a picture of the True Special which the caption says is "a Mistral body is mounted on a Buckler Chassis with Skoda IRS and torsion bar IFS". The picture next to the True Special is The Merrilee Special With a space frame with Morris Minor front end.
( space frame + Morris Minor front end = Buckler XV???)

From Tom Churchill

My understanding from Bob Hanna is that he had 4 or 5 frames. The Autosport special was one, The Canadaire was two. There was the Franco Fiat, which would have been 3 and I thought Tom Churchillís car was possibly one from Bob. Now the Stephan Burnett car which I sent an ad to you may be one of those frames from Bob as well. Iíve made some inquiries as to the location of that car.
