1990 JBA FALCON Tourer

1990 pre-SVA Ford Cortina Mk5 based Kit Car subsequently upgraded to meet and pass post 2002 SVA Type Approval process.

The build was started by car’s initial owner who fairly quickly got out of their depth with it. Car Craft Scotland Ltd stripped the car back to its component parts, re-painted as appropriate and then built it up.

Unfortunately, by the time this was completed the SVA (Single Vehicle type Approval) process had been introduced and the car did not meet a number of requirements i.e. anti-burst door locks, seat/seat belt installation, windscreen demisting, lighting etc.

These items were all upgraded and an SVA/IVA Certificate of Approval issued in 2006. At this point the initial owner ran out of funds, so a deal was struck and ownership changed.
