GTM Owners Club
The GTM marque was launched in 1967 when Cheshire garage owner Bernard Cox and friend Jack Hosker created the Cox GTM (Grand Touring Mini). The Cox GTM design composed of two Mini front subframes linked by a sheet steel semi-monocoque chassis. The chassis’ deep centre tunnel backbone was supplemented by two generous sills.
The car was mid-engined: the rear subframe contained the engine as in a Mini with the steering arms locked in position with adjustable rods and ball joints. The front subframe carried the steering rack, fuel tank and radiator. Suspension, brakes and 10 inch wheels remained as per the Mini. The fibreglass bodywork contained more than a hint of Ferrari Dino in its styling.
