And it appears to be a Fury rather than a Phoenix.

thats a Phoenix (or which is commonly called a Phoenix)

the Fisher Fury did not have that waisted body...it was more straight on the sides
the sylva fury had doors and a windscreen

But that looks like a Fury rear end....who knows what Stuart Taylor did to the moulds when they had them though

The bonnet isn't correct either.

phoenix

Dear All
So to clarify again this is a STM Phoenix and when the engine was swapped I needed to more engine bay clearance so I bought a bulge from Fury sports cars not the bonnet just a bulge and this was cut into the original bonnet of the Phoenix so this is why it looks like a fury.
Jeff we have had this discussion before on the JPSC web site and the same conclusion was reached hope this clears this up many thanks.
