We are delighted to offer this genuine, factory built Cooper T49 "Monaco" for sale.
Introduced in 1959, the Cooper T49 “Monaco” with its 2-litre Coventry-Climax engine soon found favour with drivers both in the international and club racing scenes. A total of eight factory built cars were constructed with at least six other cars built up independently using un-numbered factory supplied chassis and component kits.
CM/6/59 was the sixth of the eight factory built cars and was delivered new to American car dealer Harry Blanchard of Connecticut. After a succesfull racing career in the USA until 1980 (see the History section below), the car was bought and imported into the UK by Stirling Moss. Stirling sold the car as a restoration project the following year to David Watson who commissioned Hall & Fowler to carry out a full restoration of the car. The restoration was overseen and invoiced through Stirling Moss Ltd. Despite having sold the car, Stirling was given the car to race at the curtain opener for the 1983 Monaco GP.
CM/6/59 spent another 20 years in USA where it was raced in the historic scene until it came back to Europe in 2000 where it has raced until today.
This genuine Cooper Monaco is in outstanding condition and is 100% race-ready. It has been fully sorted, always meticulously prepared by Martin Stretton Racing Ltd and proven to be a competitive entry in all races it has participated in such as Goodwood Revival, Stirling Moss Trophy, Donington Historics, etc..
CM/6/59 benefits from current, 2015 FIA HTP and comes with a fresh, spare gearbox and other good spares.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a genuine, "no stories" factory built Cooper T49 "Monaco" with excellent documentation and in fully sorted, race-ready condition !More...
We are pleased to offer this factory, ex-John Lepp Chevron B26 for sale in race-ready condition.
The Chevron B26 was the first monocoque sports car from Derek Bennett and followed on from the successful space-framed B19, B21 and B23 line of racing car designs which preceded it.
At the beginning of 1974, Roger Hire’s Forge Mill Racing team took over the contract to run the factory supported Chevron racing team from Red Rose Motors. John Lepp, already a master exponent of the marque and who had been racing for Red Rose Motors since 1968, was hired as lead driver along with Roland Barrios as his team-mate, Barrios brought along sponsorship from the Portuguese sherry company, Pedro Domecq which is reflected in the current, period-correct livery of this gorgeous B26.
Since buying the car in 2011, the curent UK owner has successfully raced the car in the historic scene around Europe with its last appearance being at Spa CER in 2015. The car has now been re-freshed and is offered for sale in race-ready condition. It has a fresh, zero-miles Hart 420R engine rebuild by XTEC Engineering. The gearbox has been rebuild and fuel cell, seat belts and fire system are all current.
This stunning B26 benefits from a continuous ownership and is exceptionally well documented. It benefits from a current FIA HTP and is very usable in various race series such as CER and Pre-80 endurance where it has been and will continue to be a welcome and front-running entry,More...
We are very pleased to be able to offer this very special 1970 Chevron B19 chassis "70-S-10" for sale.
As a metter of fact, this particular car is the prototype B19 built in the late summer of 1970 using the repaired and modified chassis from B16-DBE-10 which had been entered by the factory for the 1970 Nurburgring 500 Kms but was crashed in practice by Dieter Quester in its one and only race appearance.
This race also saw the debut of the Brian Redman inspired B16S-01 spider. When asked for suggestions as to how to make the B16 coupe quicker and more competitive against the new spider Lola T210, Brian replied, “make it look like a Porsche 908/03” and hence the spider-bodied B16S was born. The new body design proved an instant success, so a proper B19 prototype, using the chassis from B16-DBE-10, was built by Derek Bennett in the cornered-off section of the Bolton factory which served as his “secret special projects” workshop, hence the “S” designation of this car. This was also where the B16S, the later 3-ltre B27S and the B41 Formula 1 car were built and developed.
This B19 is exceptionally well documented with continuous ownership from new. It has good early in-period race history (see below) and is offered for sale in fully restored, race-ready condition with a low hours Geoff Richardson FVC engine, rebuild FT200 box, new fuel cell, current (2013 issued) FIA HTP and a decent spares package.
This special "B19 prototype" is an important part of Chevron's history and is very usable in multiple race series (Masters, CER, ADAC FHR, etc.) where it is a welcome and competitve entry ready to give its new owner a lot of enjoyment.More...
We have the pleasure to offer this gorgeous and iconic "Jägermeister" livery Porsche 962C for sale.
The Porsche 956 replaced 935 as Porsche’s bread and butter sportscar for the privateer and after the success of the factory cars, Porsche unsurprisingly built and sold a lot of 956s. The only drawback the car had was that it couldn’t be raced in the IMSA GTP class as the foot pedals were beyond the front-wheel centreline and to overcome this, Porsche added 6 inches to the length of the chassis, hence the type number, 956 + 6 = 962.
The 962 proved even more popular than the 956 now that the American market had opened up with Porsche building 95 examples. And if you wanted to build your own 962 using a chassis of your own design and build, Porsche were quite happy to help you as long as you bought all the mechanical parts from them, used the 962 windscreen and cabin shape, and called it a Porsche 962.
Several teams built their own chassis and another 55 cars were privately built. Eight of those cars were built by Brun Motorsport using a honeycomb chassis of their own design which was fabricated and built by John Thompson of TC Prototypes in England.
This particular car, 962-006BM was built fresh for 1989 and ran in a variety of liveries depending on what sponsorship arrangements were in place to satisfy a sponsors requirements for a particular race but for most of the season, the car wore the familiar orange livery of Jägermeister, who had been Brun’s primary sponsor for some time. The car's race history is listed further below.
This Porsche 962C is equipped with the latest aero-package, a 3.2 liter water-cooled engine and MOTEC engine management. The car is in spendid condition both technically and cosmetically. Everything on the car is current and it only needs a new fuel cell (comes with the car) and crack testing to go and shine on the race track. The car comes with several sets of spare wheels and miscellaneous running spares.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a proper "Jägermeister Porsche" (which must be one of the best looking car liveries ever) in a latest specification 962C race package thereby being a welcome and competitive entry into the newly invigorated Group C racing series.More...

After its complete overhaul, this CanAm "Big Banger" car made a successfull appearance at the Goodwood members meeting after which it was tested and sorted by Nick Padmore at Donington who was most impressed with the car's quality, riding and handling. More recently, this stunning M1B ran extremely well at the 2016 Silverstone Classic meeting and the Goodwood Revival.
The car comes with a good spares package including bodywork, wheels, multiple gear-ratios and other miscellaneous items. It also has current FIA HTP papers and comes with a fully documented history file.

Twelve SE90 chassis were built by Spice, with this particular car, chassis SE90P-013, the only Chevrolet V8 powered car and was run in partnership as a quasi-works effort through Spice’s long standing US/IMSA connection with General Motors and the Pontiac brand which had powered the majority of Spice cars previously raced in IMSA.
