assistance to owners
Many thanks to Tom
Churchill who has recently been in touch and supplied
loads of interesting stuff from the USA.
Bob Hanna told me that two Bucklers were sold in British
Columbia. You have one currently listed with Rod
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.
