Camwader Posted March 7 Share Posted March 7 (edited) It’s taken over thirty-nine years, but now I’m finally calling the Pocher Monza complete. Purchased from Grand Prix Models in Radlett in the autumn on 1983, I started on it in 1984. For probably thirty or so of the intervening years it received no attention at all – it’s hard to explain why it was so often put aside in favour of other projects, just that my attraction to new things has always been greater than my commitment to finishing existing projects. There are a few things I’m not entirely happy with which I may revisit once I’ve had a break from it, but on the whole I’m happy with the result. I prefer it without the cycle wings, so that’s how it will be displayed from now on. Just about everything visible externally on the fully assembled car is original Pocher i.e. all bodywork, suspension, wheels and tyres, engine and gearbox. The only non-kit additions are the rear lights, number plates, rear view mirror and exhaust heat shield. The only after-market additions are the metal foot pedals, the instrument decals, the engine/chassis plate decals, the photo etched radiator badge (I lost the original) and the coach bolts for wire locking.
