Last issue we asked you to identify the Clan Crusader – and lots of you did!
First correct entry drawn was from Geoff Hodge of London Group, who used to sell the nifty little cars. Well done, Geoff, your bubbly will soon be on its way.
Clan was started by two ex-Lotus employees, Paul Haussauer and John Frayling. The Crusader was expensive when sold complete (£1,400) so a kit version was also available. The engine and most of the running gear came from the Hillman Imp Sport.
