JWF Fibreglass Industries built a lot of kit-car bodies through the late fifties and early sixties. Most popular were the Milanos, which initially came as open cars, but were joined later by the Milano GT model as well.

These bodies found their way onto a whole range of chassis, were powered by many different engines, were used on both road and track. But JWF changed course and no longer built sports car bodies as other business proved more profitable.
Bolly Blog: Another Milano GT 179

What the hell is a JWF Milano GT?
Quote:
The chassis was specific for this car (built by Nota) and the fiberglass body uses design elements of contemporary Ferraris. You may also see a small Cobra Daytona in it. And it's really small, about 3.5 m long, 1.4 m wide - it's small by any standard.
Typical engine choices included MG and of course the Holden I-6 in both versions. I've seen a pic of one Milano GT fitted with a Slant-Six Valiant, mounted vertically. Also Zephyr.

Btw the final JWF was the very attractive Milano GT2. Two 'works' GT2 built in 1970 for JWF owners to have fun and good success in Class-level racing, and one more subsequent for a total of three. GT2 looks different to GT, its styling inspiration was for 'something like a Lola GT' with traces of GT40 influence, but long nosed and with aft-sited cabin to suit the mechanicals. GT2 featured an unlikey combo of Matich SR3-inspired tube chassis and Holden HR front-end, diff, brakes and 179 tri-carb engine.

Sounds very similar to my T-bucket with the hot Holden-engine, couldn't get that to hold its idle below 1500 rpm. Though a lot different to my lime green XU-1 with the Bathurst cam, its 1100 rpm idle was a lopey 'bloop .. bloop .. bloop' with the car visibly rocking side-to-side with every engine pulse great stuff!

This youtube shares the same pics as the ones in the link I had just posted less than 20 minutes earlier. And it opens with the exact same Milano pic which I posted for you yesterday - you're welcome btw. So I assumed, quite reasonably I think, that it wasn't coincidence and that you had quickly assembled together a compilation video of those pics with some existing footage. No I hadn't checked through youtube and hence didn't realise that a clip already existed featuring these same Milano pics.

In short, a relatively innocent albeit well meaning mistake on my part, ok?

Oh, and to you to.
