    Re: Kelmark GT V8

    The Kelmark GT V8 and the Kellison are not kits of the same car. The Kelmark is a Dino(esque) clone while the Kellison is a GT40 clone. Most Kelmark GTs were built on VW pans. The Kelmark GT V8 was built on a mid-engined triangulated frame by Mid-Engineering. The body was the same "Dino" body used on the VW pan. There are quite a few Kelmarks in existance. Other kits similar to Kelmark were Karma, DGT, Magnum(Mazda Rotary), Eagle (Porsche 914 based), Kaylor and a few others. The Kelmark was the most popular probably due to production numbers. The Magnum and DGT are the most correct for a Dino clone.

    There is a kit currently in the UK that borrowed a lot from the Dino but has been updated quite a bit and was designed from the ground up. It is the Phantom Vortex. I have yet to find a US dealer. It uses many parts from an Acura Legend!

    There are several sites that have info on the Kelmark GT V8. Just Google it!

    Here is one of the better ones:
