New Saxon and Sebring parts Empty New Saxon and Sebring parts

Post by Monrob22 on Sat Dec 28, 2019 4:40 pm

Hello everyone and happy new year! A while ago I had posted a few queries about the interest in replacement parts for our cars. Many of you did respond with requests for the parts you would like if they were to be reproduced again. That interest along with my desire to see these cars continue on the road is what helped me make my final decision.
After many months of negotiations I have secured the purchase of a full set of original classic roadsters molds! These include the outside body panels for both the Saxon and the Sebring MX, unfortunately the Sebring 5000 with the smaller flares was not available. This spring I hope to relocate everything to my shop in Oregon and to begin small volume production shortly thereafter.
I am still working on a pricing structure with the big caveat being shipping of Course.
My goal is to keep the prices reasonable while still being able to recover my investment. I am definitely open and invite fellow members ideas, suggestions, and or requests . Working with David our administrator, once I have produced new parts and have the bugs worked out we'll work on a separate webpage or something similar for direct purchase. I am very excited about this new venture and the ability to offer new hoods or hard tops or other bits and pieces that we all need or have had damaged.
I will not be offering mechanical parts such as chassis or suspensions or other metal pieces . I think it would be awesome to be able to team up with another member who is stronger in that field than I am. Perhaps one of you will step forward if so inclined in that area . I am however still on the lookout for a bear chassis as my sons are both very adept at welding and I think it would be need to replicate that part as well . For now I have included a couple pictures to show the state of the molds as is . They will need a little cleanup but I think there still a lot of life left in them.
Thank you for taking time to read my little post.

Sounds great!  I wish you well in this endeavor. It will be nice to have a source for replacement parts, should they be needed.

As to the Sebring 5000 rear section.  I would imagine a lot of folks would want to upgrade to the wider fenders on the 5000 just to make tires easier to fit.  The front sections were the same, I think. If I were not past the refitting of my body panels, I would seriously consider doing just that.

The scooped hood should be a good seller and fairly easy to ship. I paid through the nose for one from someone on the old Yahoo site.

Thank you Hotrod! I think this will be fun, if nothing else at least a number of us can get rid of the louvered hoods! And I agree the MX rear end does look better than the 5000 . I am fitting 10 inch rims under mine.

I also wish you the very best in getting this up and running. It was sad to see Classic Roadster shut down. I visited the factory in ND many times. I built mine in 1988 while I living in Boston. I am about ready to transfer it to my son in Vegas. He helped me build it while he was in HS.

Thank you RJ!! I hope this will catch on as I also have some additional parts in the works.
What wheels are you using? from your avatar it looks like wires but I am unsure as to make?

Hello,
Im definitely interested in obtaining a scooped hood and swap out my louvered version. Has anyone turned a louvered hood into one that actually allows air flow?

Charles, yes I am in the process now of converting my lovered hood.
Once I get the bugs worked out I will modify one of the molds to reflect the change to a functional scoop.

New Saxon and Sebring parts Empty Sebring molds update

I will be on my way to pick up all the Sebring Molds in two weeks!
Once I have them in my own digs I will post updated pictures and narrow down the repair needs. Then I will pull one of each part before taking any orders.

Sounds good. Hope you're staying safe from the coronavirus!

Looking forward to seeing what you can offer.

Update on the Sebring Molds,
The covid19 thing has delayed my picking up the molds.
Canada as you all know has closed the border so I will have to wait for travel restrictions to be lifted. Hopefully not too far in the future. But public health is way more important than car hobbies! Did I just say that out loud?
Oops!
