Russell Hooper entered into the auto body assembly business in 1984 as one of the earliest New Zealand manufacturer of kitset cars.
Russell was a medical supply representative for some 30 years, and always had a desire to own an MG TF, but could never justify the cost of ownership. By 1983 the first, and so far only, car had been shown at the Auckland Motor Show and enough interest generated to indicate a healthy demand for the vehicle in kitset form.
Warwick Tweedy, a personal friend of Russell’s doubled the one man band in 1984 and assisted in the marketing and brain storming of the car. All Mark 2’s had a one piece tub with its floor and firewall being built in with the TF grill shape.
Mr Alex Rohde, a gifted engineer who had already been involved in the creation of the one piece body tub, became more involved wit the further development of the car. Not wanting to wait for the final development of the car Doug spent many hours researching and searching for the parts to make it all work.
Warwick ceased his involvement in 1997 due to lagging sales caused by the great influx of Japanese imports. Mr Jim Woonton became the upholsterer of choice and he certainly has done the majority of cars to date. In the late 1980’s it was decided that the NZ market was just too small for future growth and it was decided to develop our own chassis and redesign the total car to comply with the ADR’s (Australian Design Rule).
To this end a consultant design engineer was employed, Mr Richard Wong, who designed all items that required ADR specifications. Over the years the company had used various fibreglass laminating companies, but in 1992 decided to do it all in house.
One person was employed and the new company of AC Fibreglass was started with just 1200 sqr feet of factory.


The Mark 5 was born (the 5 or V chosen to stand for the Viva suspension) in 1991, # 197 to a Mr R Mooney. The Mazda Miata MX5 was chosen as it was one of the few rear wheel drive cars still in production. 1999 saw the company build a small workshop, 600 sq ft, off to the side of Won-Door Ltd, a company owned by Russell and his wife, Betty Ann. In Jan 1990 Russell purchased a SS100 replicar built by the late Bill Gardner, who unfortunately died prior to completing the car. The kitset was of Antique & Classic Corp (USA) origin, an American kitset of the 1937 SS100 Jaguar. In 2002 the T Car club donated to Southwards Auto Museum in Paraparamu, a T Car purported to be old #1. 75 Mark 5’s were made up to Oct 2003, and continue to be available to those who want to be more “hands on” in the building of their cars. In 2000 it was decided to invest in developing a model for LHD markets, primarily the USA, and to utilise the entire Mazda Miata MX5. The pressure was on, as the new car had not yet been developed and a shipping date of the 3 March 2003 loomed ahead.
The car was shown and won the coveted “Peoples Choice” trophy at Knotts Berry Farm, California, and then transported to the Carlisle “ National Kit Car Show” Pennsylvania.
The new car, “The T G Sports 1955” (domestically the Mark 6) is primarily aimed at the export markets. The TG was also significantly different from its predecessors in that it was no longer a kitset car, but a “semi built “ vehicle, or as known in the US a “turnkey minus”.
The car would now be delivered direct to the customer in a case, in a completely built up state, upholstered and painted, depending on customer option. All that had to be added was the Mazda Miata MX5 mechanicals saving countless hours of assembly. A change of Australian distributor took place in 2002 to a Mr Daryl Swaine, who retained the name of Alternative Cars Australia Pty Ltd.

Many companies in the UK were using this donor vehicle as it provided all the mechanical parts required to complete an affordable car. This model had 100% Triumph Herald chassis and mechanical parts, plywood floor and firewall, fibreglass grill with rod bars, and a tub made up of 5 panels. All the while it was being attempted to chrome plate the grill but only the last 2 attempts succeeding. In 2001 it was decided to upgrade to an injected motor to assist with compliance issues in Australia.
The company’s silver demonstrator was the first to use it and was launched at the National motor Show 2001.
For the record it is in fact # 5, sold to a Mr Chris Carter in 1985 and who subsequently donated it to the T Car Club.
He also returned with a commitment from an interested party to being an agent, and also to show the new car at Knotts Berry Farm Kit Car Show in April 2003. A solid team was formed with Alex Rohde at the helm of the development with Russell being the chief motivator.
These replicas were built by individual customers from body parts supplied by the company. While the Swallow had largely already been developed, a lot of small items remained to be worked out. We have mostly had larger vehicles on it but it will work just as will with smaller vehicles.
Some of the vehicles that we have worked on using this rotisserie are 1955 Chevy, 1957 Chevy, 1967 Impala, 1964 Galaxie, 1969 Mustang, XY Falcon, XA Falcon, FE Holden and more.
