Hi,
The one that really gets up my nose is a kit car called the Beaufort. Its billed as a 1920's car. It is a 80's chassis with a truly terrible fiberglass body. Very popular for weddings, its the sort of crap I am up against in the wedding car hire world!

There, I feel better now!

G'day Petter,
to PackardInfo.

Kit cars? They are obviously not aimed at the "purists" but have their own particular niche. They present the style of the time being represented in combination with modern mechanical components. And because of that and other influences a lot is lost in execution of the product or is it in the translation? That said, even faithful modern replicas of old cars are not valued as highly as originals are. What appeals to some will not appeal to others and could be summed up as "beauty is in the eye of the beholder".

Misuse of the word "replica" which means a copy or duplicate. These are just "creations" in the spirit of something past, not replicas. The Fran Roxas bodies for the 34 LeBaron phaeton are replicas, only a very discerning eye can tell the difference.

The reason I asked if anyone knows about any "kit car body" is tPackard have planed for many years to build a car in mid 30 style whit a long/big engine I have in store. If i could use a body from a kit for a Packseanard, that style I like, I should save a lot of effort to build my own and a original is not in my mind to use. So is it any how have sean any nice ones in original scale?

There have been a number of what you could reasonably call replicas over the years, these are pretty well covered in the recent TPC article on all the Packard revivial efforts. One was a quite faithful replica of a 1934 sedan or club sedan which sold in very modest numbers mostly to limo services. Perhaps the maker was Bayliff, though I'm uncertain about that. In any case none of these revival efforts have survived but the cars occasionally surface.
