CANADIAN RIVERSIDE RACER KIT INFORMATION
As Canada has specific rules re: kit cars, Riverside makes a special Canadian Car Kit for Canadians Only.


KIT CONTENTS
The Canadian Starter Car Kit includes the following:

1. FRAME/CHASSIS - Complete original Tojeiro style 3” Round Tube ladder style
Frame using DOM type tubing. The frame is jig welded for accuracy and includes necessary small block Ford motor and selected transmission mounts. The Riverside is an exact replica of the 1960's AC Ace/Cobra. Unlike other replicas, it consists of a round tubular frame with the body being an outer skin with no interior panels being part of it. All of the interior panels have to be fitted once the skin has been attached. Therefore the skin alignment and bonding/riveting is critical.

Unlike other replicas which merely consist of a rectangular tube chassis and a tub with footboxes and other panels molded in which can just be laid on the chassis and bolted down, the Riverside's chassis plays an integral part in retaining the shape and strength of the unit. This is achieved by wrapping, bonding and riveting the loose skin to the frame. Like the aluminum cars it so closely resembles, this is a highly specialized procedure and to ensure it is done correctly, it is done by Hi Tech in specialized fixtures to assure proper alignment and structural integrity.

2. BODY - Complete hand laid fiberglass body including attached fiberglass foot boxes, doors, hood and trunk. Doors and trunk are hinged. Loose aluminium panels that do not perform a strengthening function ie trans tunnel, flooring, bulkhead etc are supplied loose.

3. ROLL BAR - Complete and ready to be attached.

4. EXHAUST - Complete assembly and mounting hardware ready to bolt on         

5. LIGHTING - Headlights with integral running lamps, front amber indicator lamps, rear red tail-lights and chromed license plate light.
