Can anyone confirm which two A20 chassis were converted to the three-seater AX3?

01 and 02?

In the Arrows auction they were sold as chassis 01 and 02,
Were they originally designated A20/01 and A20/02, or other were they A20 chassis renumbered AX3/01 and AX3/02?

Can you saw up a single seater monocoque and modify it to be a two seater? It needs to go back into the autoclave again.......
I think I'll go for new monocoques AX3/01 and /02, and assume that the writers meant that the "conversions" were re-use
of suspension components etc. etc.

The press released called the chassis 'an adapted A20' chassis...so I would assume the they were just that.

In the three seater you are more or lesss sitting in the sidepods, so maybe the need for saws weren't necessary?

Maybe you can ask Jos? :)

I think that refers to the design being adapted, not a physical model.

If they were newly built monocoques, then why choose a '99 design?
They might as well based it on the then current '01 or '00 design?

Maybe someone knows how many cars are accounted for.

A21/1 lives 25 ft from my work desk if that helps.

The three seaters were converted A19/20s (the A20s were converted A19s) all but one chassis (A19) was chopped about to make them in to 3 seaters. They were made longer and the 2 passenger cockpits were a spaceframe type set up attatched to the tub, they currently reside at the Ascari Resort Ronda Spain.
