My dad used to work for Oldham and Crowther, the jaguar specialist based in Peterborough. I'll ask him if he knew of any O and C sports based on celicas.

Any photos?

I spoke to my father, he left O&C before these cars were made, very late 70's, so I can't help any further. But it made him smile when I mentioned the name

The O&C sport was indeed a user of Celica bits - specifically the 2TG engine and T series 5 speed box. The only other contemporary to use these bits as I remember was the Spyder Silverstone.

Works driver for O&C was Heather Bailey who I have vague recollection of having won the drive from one of the kit car magazines around this time. That's mid 80s though, so my memories of this are a bit vague.
She was definitely the official driver in a red car.

There's nothing like dragging a thread back from the past!
I was chatting to the landlord of my local lastnight and he knew that I had a few kit cars so asked if I had heard of Oldham and Crowther. He then produced a couple of pictures and brochures. It would seem that the car he has is the very same one this thread was started by! Small world and all that.
It currently has a 2ltr Pinto fitted and has been put away for the winter.
