The Microplas Mistral is a special based on a Triumph TR3/4
Microplas Ltd was founded in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire in the early 1950s by a group of 750 Motor Club enthusiasts who got together to design and produce an all-enveloping glassfibre bodyshell for the Austin Seven chassis. Its first design the Stiletto was followed in 1955 by the Mistral. Intended for the contemporary Ford Ten chassis of 7 6 wheelbase, the original, round-tail Mistral looked rather like a scaled down Jaguar D-Type. Cresting the wave of the 1950s kit car boom, Microplas rapidly expanded, relocating to Mitcham, Surrey and supplying Mistral bodyshells its most successful product – to a number of independent producers including Buckler, Fairthorpe and TVR.
Following Mr Snappers retirement, the car was advertised for sale and featured in Classic & Sports Car magazine (July 2001). The current owner bought the car from Mr Snapper that same year.
