Popped in to see Grandstand Coachworks recently. The Wiltshire-based classic restoration company now has the ex-Bill Monk WAM K3 under their control and is busy preparing their first example for launch this summer.

Bill sold the project after deciding to retire and his Aston DB3-inspired kit is a real peach. It’s based around BMW mechanicals and although Grandstand will be making some changes they are keen not to go too far away from Bill’s template.

Only fully-built examples will be available with prices yet to be set although bodies should be available in GRP or aluminium.

More information from www.grandstandcoachworks.com (and HERE soon) ENDS.

Although best-known for his classic car work and WAM K3, not many people know that Bill Monk also produced his crazy WAM Fiat Special in the early nineties.
