Spyder documentation from c 1990

Post by richardw »

Here are shots of the Spyder catalogue pages showing their V8 Donington conversion incorporating Jaguar XJ diff assembly, brakes and propshaft, and the rear suspension upgrade for Elites and Eclats. I found this booklet amongst the paperwork that came when I bought the Elite.

First, the Donington:

I do also have a Spydersport price list that gives a bit more technical information about the components of these conversions if anyone is interested.

Cheers, Richard
