A fast back being developed by Jack circa 1950

This Early L15 was being modified by Jack in New Zealand. Apparently the monocoque was shortened and the rear section of the roof angled down to create the fast back lines Unfortunately it was never completed. Would Flaminio Bertoni have approved of such a shape for his design, I’ll leave that up to you to decide.

Jack Weaver in Action
