Fairthorpe TX Tripper

Maybe someone has an interest in FX Trippers on your site.
Recently on Ebay i came across a bodyshell only that has had seen better days .I have pondered what to do with it .At first i intended to repair it and paint it to a reasonable standard and sell on..Although i thought just how many people want a TX bodyshell alone.
Hence i have plans to convert the shell into a monocoque chassis involving Fiat running gear , Fiat coupe 2 litre engine and transmission.FWD in other words which is an easier option than trying to obtain a Triumph Vitesse original guise . Spending years getting all that restored and working.
Looking at the design/bodyshape will need some aerodynamics as it will take off i reckon over 50 mph.
My intension to be honest is eventually sell it as a trackday of a competition car of sorts..
Any ideas will be welcome.
I have a facebook page "Llewellyn Imp Motorsport" if anyone is intersted i seeing as is at time of writing.
