Ive since been informed it’s a Nike

Hi,

Bit of info on your car. This is a Nike (low volume racing car manufacturer in predominantly the 1960’s/70’s but producing at other times) built by Ken Nicholls, owner of Nike, in North Devon. I believe it was built as a Hillclimb sports racer and was owned by my father for a period of time approx 20 yrs ago? It was running and fitted was a rover V8 (which I believe was from original) and was Hillclimbed by, I think, Chris Cuff predominantly in the West Country. I believe the cuff family cars were always known as “Hells Hammers”. I would imagine it may have been built in the 70’s.
If memory serves me correctly, it had wide 8-10” competition wheels fitted - unsure if they were original, but I would imagine likely. It should have wide “cycle” wings with it (it was fitted with them when my father owned it) that catered for the wide wheels.

Unfortunately, Ken passed away 2 or 3 years ago.
