In due course in 2009, we shall have photos of our own new demonstration CV3.



Here is a stack of three CV3 frames awaiting collection by clients. We aim to hold at least one CV3 chassis frame and kit in stock at all times.

Having purchased the CV3 business in 2007, we  have commenced production alongside our main production of MG3 models. In order to comply with MSVA regulations, we have had to make some changes to the CV3 body frame in order to comply with upper seat belt anchorage points. In order to achieve this we have raised the upper chassis rail by 50mm in the same manner as our MG3/CX3 models. This has uncovered some other interesting points. Firstly, one sits deeper and more comfortably in the car. Secondly, the upper aluminium deck forward of the scuttle now  projects over the top of the master cylinder/gear linkage, and above the gearbox. This affords considerably more luggage space, and we shall develop this with our demonstrator. We intend having a removable stainless steel round tube "grille" over the whole front, which will be constructed from tig welded 15mm round tube, and this will enhance the whole front end.

Explanations:

Please read all details carefully.

Currently, the BRA CV3 model is solely a barrel-back car. This has a sloping rear to which a spare wheel is attached.

Traditionally, many Citroen 2CV based kits and some individual builds have been badly finished, perhaps giving the type in general a bit of a bad press. Of late some manufacturers' standards have improved. Upholstery and general interior fitment have often let the car and the overall marque down, this can cause a bad perception of the type in general to the potential buying public. In an effort to stem this, and to take the image "up market", we are offering our CV3 options with upholstery kits and complete cockpit coaming upholstered rolls.

Please remember that a well built and well finished car is the only standard that should be aspired to, and everyone of our cars should inspire a prospective buyer. To this end, we have developed our upholstery and cockpit coaming rolls, since the interior of the car is often the first item seen, and you'll spend a fair bit of time within it.

CV3 KIT 001 is the most basic comprising a body frame that is bolted down to your existing/modified or your replacement modified 2CV chassis. This kit supplies, GRP nose cone, scuttle, rear cover, and two mudguards. We convert all of your donor components, and these are listed below in the Donor parts conversion list. Please read all details carefully.

CV3 KIT 002 is a more detailed kit, which in addition to the above in CV3 KIT 001, contains new components including 15 inch wire wheels and tyres. Please read the detailed component list. Within the cost, we convert parts (see the Donor parts conversion list) that you must supply us. Please read all details carefully.

CV3 KIT 003 is a fully comprehensive kit containing all parts, excepting those from your donor 2CV car. Within the cost, we convert parts (see the Donor parts conversion list) that you must supply us. Please read all details carefully.

CV3 KIT 004 is our most comprehensive kit. Not only does it comprise all parts from CV3 KIT 003, it includes, all "donor parts", plus new reconditionedengine/gearbox/driveshaft/brake components.  Please read all details carefully.

CV3 KIT 005 is our fully built up car option. This uses reconditioned donor parts, re suspension and steering, and exchange/new engine/gearbox/driveshafts/brakes etc.
