Sorry Rodger, but the Lenham front end is not a copy of the Dick
Jacobs Midget GT. The information I have is that the Jacobs cars did
not appear until late 1962, after Lenham had started producing fronts
and backs of various shapes in fibreglass. The Jacobs midgets have
metal bodywork and I have been told that although a mould was made
from one of the cars to make fibreglass panels none have been made!
