UPDATE on this - I was given a phone number for Peter and I called him last sunday afternoon. We had a long & interesting conversation. The accident happened on St Peters Way, Chertsey just off the M25 in 2002. I daren't say on here how fast Peter said he was travelling when the rear axle seized and threw him off the road. The car rolled several times. The 468 engine sucked in half an acre of mud and was completely ruined. Pete reckoned he was lucky to escape with a few big bruises. Car didn't have a straight panel left on it. No roll cage. Reckons it was shear fatigue after so many years of getting hammered off the line. Peter bought the car off Phil Turk in 1982 and owned it for 20yrs. In the end the engine was scrapped and the body went to someone in Reading.....raven68 wrote:A guy on the Mustang forum said a friend Peter (Banford/Blandford) owned this car in the late 80s early 90s. Peter broke the back axle at speed, this sent the car across a dual carriage way, up an embankment vaulting a fence an ending up in the middle of a field ! (I believe upside down) He pulled the engine and sold on the body.
Can anybody shed light / confirm this happened / know Peter etc..... as I really would like to establish how badly Rampage was after this incident and whether the body was saved or scrapped?
So I am only missing the 'owner' of the shell from 2002 to 2007 at which point it was sold to someone who has spent the last three to four years and a lot of dosh getting it back on the road. When I get the V5 registered in my name I'll send off a fiver to the DVLA for the list of previous owners.
