Frua was asked by John Coombs to give his E-Type Coupe an Italian look.
Frua didn't have much time to perform a total rebody so only the nose and the rear end were modified.
When the job was done the owner wasn't satisfied, because the styling wasn't distinctive enough.
Italsuisse was then ordered to add the overdimensioned chrome bumpers.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
