We have the pleasure to offer for sale this rare and exceptional 1967 Lola T70 Mk3 – chassis SL73/112 – which has been with its current owner for 20 years !
Only 15 Mk3 coupes were built in-period and of these only about 6 are top notch and without any stories. SL73/112 is one of these 6 and benefits from outstanding European and African in-period racing history (see below). In addition, this “Gullwing T70” has continuous ownership from new, originally being referred to as the “Epstein/Hawkins T70” after their first owners and racing drivers.
SL73/112 has spent the first 27 years of its life in England after which it has resided in France for the last 20+ years. Its current and long-term owner has always maintained this car with no expense spared while he raced it on the European historic racing scene where it has never been badly damaged and remains highly original.
The car has a fresh (only 1.5 hours) 5.9 liter small block chevy engine with rare side-draft 55” Weber carburetors and a new, fresh Hewland LG-600 gearbox. SL73/112 is sold in race-ready condition with 2010 FIA HTP papers (new, current HTP papers will also come with the car) and the following spares : one set of wheels plus another front and rear wheel, long and short gear-ratios and a very efficient exhaust silencer system.
This is a rare opportunity to buy one of the best, ex-Epstein/Hawkins/de Udy Lola T70 Mk3 coupes in excellent condition which is ready to bring lots of enjoyment to its new, lucky owner !More...
We are pleased to offer for sale this well-known, 2014 CER championship winning Chevron B36. This latest development of Derek Bennett's very successful 2 litre sports prototype has continuous ownership from new (see ownership history below) and was never badly damaged despite its extensive racing career which includes no less than 5 LeMans 24hr participations between 1976 and 1980 ! You will find this B36's stellar race history further below which is evidence of this car being arguably the best B36 existing.
The car is 100% ready to run with freshly painted body and freshened up suspension. Fuel tanks were replaced in May 2014 and belts are new. Extinguisher is current as well. CWP was recently replaced and the Geoff Richardson latest spec BDG has only done 4 hours.
This B36 with outstanding provenance comes with an extensive history file, new 2015 FIA HTP papers and a very good spares package.
Its new owner will have the pleasure to continue the winning streak of this front running and famous Chevron B36 !More...
We are pleased to offer for sale this gorgeous and very quick RHD Lotus Elan S2 was bought by the current owner in 2000 and was subsequently completely build-up to the latest 26R specification.
Upon completion, the car has been raced very successfully at both the national and international level up to 2012. The owner then switched to racing a 2 litre prototype which is why the Elan is now up for sale.
The dry sump engine has been built by John Smirtwait delivering 190 bhp and only has 10 hours of running since its last rebuild. The other specs are as follows:
The car comes with extensive spares which include a spare set of wheels and spare diff. with LSD 4.1-ratio.
Given that this Elan racer sat idle for a few years, the following would need to be done to bring it to race ready condition : go through the car with renewal of fluids and update belts and fire system.
A new, 2015 FIA HTP application is underway and comes with the car. Road registration can be easily done by its new owner as old title/registration document exists.
This excellent Elan S2/26R is located in Belgium where it can be inspected subject to appointment.
We are very pleased to offer this unique Chevron B23, the only Chevron sportscar which was powered with a Cosworth DFV engine by the factory. As the car started life as a B23 with chassis number B23-73-21, we will refer to the car by its chassis number.
The car is in fresh, race ready condition with a latest spec G. Richardson DFV engine (2 hours on it) and still has its original, rebuild gearbox. The ownership chain from its 1st owner to the present owner is clear and uninterrupted. B23-73-21 is well documented and comes with an attestation by Chevron Cars Ltd. The car is currently being fitted with its correct B23 bodywork in "CEBORA" livery by Chevron Racing Ltd and a new, 2015 FIA HTP has been applied for.
This one-off Chevron will provide its new owner with lots of driving joy while being a front runner in today's historic racing scene around the world.More...
We have the pleasure to offer for sale the ex-Tony Cicale Chevron B26. While Tony Cicale may not be that well known this side of the Atlantic, he is a legendary race and championship winning engineer held in high regard in the U.S.A..
Derek Bennett, founder of Chevron Cars Ltd. was a brilliant engineer who started to build race cars in the late 50ies in a shop in North England where he quickly developed a name for himself. He could develop a brand new car in a remarkably short time but he rarely found that a fresh design was really necessary. This was certainly the case in the middle of the 1973 season when the latest Chevron B23 was no match for the Lolas and Osellas. So, Bennett decided that a clean sheet design was needed to regain competitiveness. Shortly after he was found testing the brand new Chevron B26.
What set the B26 apart from its predecessors was the aluminium monocoque. Previous Chevron sports racers had used a reinforced spaceframe design that was first used in the B6 of 1967. The new monocoque type chassis of the B26 offered similar rigidity but weighed less. Just as on the earlier cars a separate front subframe was used for ease of maintenance or replacement in case of accident damage. Adapted to the latest low profile tires, the front suspension was carried over from the final evolution of the B23 while the rear suspension was derived from the B25 Formula 2 single seater. In addition, the B26 benefitted from a simple wedge-shaped body and an integrated rear wing.
This B26, chassis B26/74/05, has continuous history from new with just a few, mostly long-term owners. The current owner bought the car in 2008 from the USA and, once imported into France, commissioned a full rebuild of the car which has now been completed. Everything has been gone through and a new zero-miles Richardson Ford BDG has been installed. The owner has now decided to sell the car as, due to a lack of time, he has not had the pleasure to use this beautiful and very fast Chevron B26.
Everything on the car is current (seat belts, fuel cell, etc.) and it is totally race-ready for making its re-appearance on the US historic racing scene. If to be raced in Europe, the car would only need a correct B26 tail and FIA HTP papers.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a no-stories Chevron B26 with excellent provenance and in fresh, race-ready condition !More...
We are pleased to offer this gorgeous Abarth Osella PA1 chassis 08 for sale. The car has continuous history from new and is in excellent condition.
It was bought by the current owner in 2011 who had a complete rebuild done and a new, correct 2.0 Abarth engine fitted (instead of the FVC it had). The nose section was strengthened in honeycomb aluminium to provide additional protection. Despite this extensive work, the car has only been used once at the Barcelona Masters event in 2011 where it qualified on pole but DNF-ed in the race due to a throttle linkage problem. The engine was then rebuild and has zero hours !
As the car has not been used since, it still looks as new ! All it needs to go racing again is a re-commissioning service and updating with belts, fire extinguisher, fuel cell and a new FIA HTP.
The car comes with a spare set of wheels and miscellaneous running spares.
This no-stories Abarth Osella PA1 is simply stunning and will provide its new owner with lots of enjoyment in the many historic race events it is eligible for.
We are very proud and pleased to offer this famous ex-Rob Walker racing A-type for sale. This car has only had 3 owners in the last 53 years !
A3 has a stellar and very successful racing history from 1952 up to 1957. Its drivers reads like the “Who’s Who” of fifties motor racing with names such as Ken Downing, Tony Rolt, Stirling Moss, Peter Collins, Tony Brooks, Roy Salvadori and (a young) Graham Hill.
After being acquired by the current owner in 2006, it has been campaigned extensively on the European historic racing scene and always received the tender, loving care such car deserves. It is in race-ready condition and needs nothing.
A3 is extremely well documented and comes with an extensive history file.
This museum quality GP Car comes with a current (2010) FIA HTP, a spare engine block, wheel moulds and running spares.
While mechanically very sound, A3 is extremely original and ready to continue showing its pedigree and good looks at events such as Goodwood and/or the Monaco Historic GP.More...
This is no "ordinary" Gr4 Pantera : being the only works car, #2873 is the most famous of the 14 Gr4 cars ! It has amazing history (winner Giro d’Italia 1973; European GT champion 1975, 90+ victories), factory attestation and ample documentation including 100+ in-period factory work sheets and in-period pictures.
Since it was bought by the current owner at the beginning of 2011, #2873 has undergone a no-expense-spared full restoration whereby the geometry, suspension, fuel-system, engine and gearbox have been rebuild. The car still features all its original bodywork and its livery is exactly as it won the 1973 Giro d'Italia.
After a succesfull rollout and 1st race at Spa Francorchamps in September 2013, #2873 has now made its re-appearance on the European racing scene in 2014 participating in the Brands Hatchs Masters Festival and the 2014 Oldtimer GP.
This exceptional car comes with a full restoration file and an extensive history file with lots of in-period pictures, FIA HTP, road registration and various spares including multiple wheel sets and a spare, rebuild ZF gearbox.
