    The lower shell is the “Mistral” which was used by several specials here on the West Coast in the ’50s–I recall especially a pretty MG spl. built by Bob Plass, and a 375 MM Ferrari owned by the Arciero Bros. (I think an ex-Parravano car.) The original Scaglietti Spyder body weighed 200 lbs more!

    Anyone can give me information on the Toledo model of Microplas. I’m restoring a Toledo (Ford engine).

  3. Simon Lang

    I have owned and built a Toledo over the last 22 years and am still looking for original documentation on the company. I have the advert you show with the Stilleto and Mistral and several copies of copies of others. If you have more from this search i would gladly swap copies.

  4. Roberto

    I’m restoring one Toledo, but I could not find documentation of the Microplas company about it.
    If you want I can send you some photos of my car. Best regards. Roberto

  5. Simon Lang

    Yes that would be good Roberto. I could send you pictures of my Microplas. But how do we do that here? A picture of mine is on Google images it is the white one not the green one.

  6. Roberto

    I agree to exchange email and thank you if you can.
    For the moment I send on your email some pictures of my Toledo.

  7. Simon Lang

    Yes- I agree to share my e-mail with Roberto. Looking forward to seeing those pictures and old adds

    If you’d like, I can pass your email addresses to eachother. It saves publishing them here where they could be exploited by potential spammers but gives you a chance to exchange images. If you want, I’d love to be kept in the loop. These kinds of collaborations between readers is exactly the kind of thing I love featuring on the blog as projects mature.

    Sound ok?

    Seriously guys, I want to see pics of your Toledos. So send those photos my way too
