That's right Rob, we have made a choise between the "Canadian" and an "Italian" Fox, restoring one Fox is enough.

Mvg. Dirk


The "Italian" Fox with on top the "Canadian" Brian Gough, 6 weeks ago.

Default I would love to see this one back in Canada!

If and when I win the lottery, I would love to get down and dirty with this restoration. I am not that familiar with this Elliot piece as you guys out East are. Dirk, can you tell us on what would be needed to complete this restoration? Thanks Rob

Hallo Rob,

Several parts are missing Rob, the "Italian"Fox had the same problem. The missing parts have we (special Steven) made by our self. Also a very nice found by the Elliott's, we bought lots of Fox parts. These parts came from a "hidden" place !!!

Mvg. Dirk

Default Fox Parts

Hello Dirk,

Would the parts from the Hidden place make up the missing parts for the restoration?

In the past I have been corresponding with Bruce Parker on his Fox. I'm also in contact with a museum here in Virginia that has a lot of Fox defrost shields available.

Cheers
Randy Hovey
