Ex-Sammio founder and hot rodder, Gary Janes, is back with a new operation called Mid Century Re-Creations, with his first project the mid-fifties-inspired Formosa 120 GR.

Find an old Triumph Herald or Vitesse, get rid of the bodyshell, add Gary’s metal support perimeter frame (circa £1000) and his one-piece bodyshell (plus boot, doors and flip-front) for £2450 (intro price) and you have a period-looking budget two-seater that is IVA exempt as it utilises an un-modified Triumph chassis.
