You're unlikely to come across another car like this. It's a JBSS 1200 Spyder, a fascinating track day special based on a Triumph Herald but now much more potent. Initially started as a conversion to a Sammio (Herald‑based kit car) by a previous owner, it was left unfinished and instead received a one‑off aluminium racing body on top of the Sammio tubular structure. The Triumph Herald engine has been replaced by a Suzuki GSXF 1100 unit and gearbox, with the aim being to create a sprint/hillclimb/trackday special.

The car was previously sold by ACA in 2016, when it was noted that the fuel, brake, suspension and steering components were either new or refurbished. The JBSS seems to have been little‑used since then.  

The 1147cc Herald on which the car was based was registered in May 1966, and four former registered keepers are recorded. The  odometer currently shows 65,960 miles, with the last MoT expiring in May 2017.

The paperwork file includes the V5C and a large stack of invoices and other literature relating to the build and running of the JBSS, testifying to a lot of money spent over the years. The folder also  includes a parts manual for the Suzuki engine, along with printed photos of the special aluminium body under construction.
