1984 BRA P-Type

BRA (or Beribo Replica Automobiles) was founded by John Berry and Peter Ibbotson sometime around 1980. Their first product was this, the P-Type. They would later go on to build Cobra replicas and the Leighton, which was a Morgan 3-Wheeler replica. They are currently not active.
The P-Type was based around the MGB. This one uses the running gear from a 1964 model, including the 1.8-liter inline-four. The body work is very un-MGB, and is sort of vaguely immediate-post-war British in design.
This particular example was produced sometime around 1984, and in all, about 400 P-Types and Cobra replicas were built by the company before the end of that decade. This one has been in the same ownership for 17 years and has been used little in that time. It will now sell at no reserve. Click here for more info.
