AAM MGB GT numbers

Does anyone know how many MGB GT body shells All American Models cast? There are some poor quality re-pops on eBay and I more of the good, original ones!

I'm not sure how many were made; I did the master for it but Art did all the casting. I had a couple extras but sold them a couple years after I got them. I know they're pretty rare and hard to find, didn't know about any pirated copies...well, a friend of mine who had one of the original copies did make a mold from it to make a few but not for anyone but himself and a few friends, not available commercially and that was quite awhile back.

Thanks Bob

I'm thinking I might have a go at casting a few more (just for me), I just need to get good at casting first. Ruined a dashboard on my first attempt, not risking one of these bodies until I've got really good!

Stories of poor quality copies is the reason I haven't pulled the trigger on one of these yet. I would love to get my hands on one but it's difficult to tell what you are going to get, and items purported to be priginal are pricey.
