    Very nice! I have been wanting to build a 250 TR for a long time, I'm in Santa Monica, do you care if I stop by your shop one day to chat?

    Does the car (still?) have an alloy body and are the fender vents correct?

    Original body was damaged so an alloy was built back in the 80’s for it . It should be an open headlight car also

    Driver of 1411GT appears to be Brian Hoyt, which would make complete sense.

    What's the story with the fender vents on the Cal Spider? They are different from other photos of 1411GT that appear online

    1411GT was discussed in 2005 here on Fchat. See here and scroll down to post 12 or see here for a 1960s picture posted by Aardy of it with open headlights and the unusual fender vents.

    1411GT.

    I wonder if the original engine was found? Engine from 250 Cal Spider 0939GT is said to have been installed in it.
