The Coune Gemini was an MGB-based one-off with a transparent removable top. It was prepared for the baron Lippens, a famous Belgian financier in the sixties. The car was exhibited during the Brussels car show in 1966 with a proposed price of 5,000 GBP. It was painted red and upholstered with beige leather.
The second owner, P. Grant, repainted the car in yellow-orange. Then the third and last owner completely destroyed the car in a traffic accident. Legend says she was a famous call-girl from Brussels.
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.
