Make: Lola
Name: T296
Year: 1977

We are delighted to offer for sale the 1977 “Ultramar” works car with excellent history and few owners from new. 

Lola T296 chassis HU87 was fitted with a 2-litre BDX engine (the 1st experimental version of the becoming BDG engine) and was the official 1977 factory car run under the Ultramar-Rizla Team Lola banner. It was driven by Chris Craft, Ray Mallock and Guy Edwards in the 1977 World Championship for Makes.

This works T296 still carries its original tub and original gearbox!

Only 4 owners from new: at the end of the 1977 season, HU87 was sold by the Lola factory to its European Lola agent Heini Mader after which it spent the next 20 years in the Rosso Bianco Museum in Germany. It was bought from the museum by US dealer Steve Tillack who sold the car to its current, UK owner in 2008.

HU87 then received a full rebuild including a new, Connaught Competition Engines Ltd. 2.0 litre Cosworth BDG engine and – when finished – competed very successfully in Peter Auto’s CER race championship as well as participating in the 2010 and 2012 Le Mans Classic where it won the Team event.

The car was subsequently retired from racing and – as such – it needs a refresh (fuel cell, engine, go-through, belts & fire system) estimated at a conservative GBP 25k to put it back in race ready condition.

HU87 already benefits from a new, 2019 FIA HTP and comes with good spares as follows: 1 nose, 1 tail (big & old) , 2 sets of spare wheels and gear-ratio’s

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a works Lola T296 with impeccable history and with its original tub and gearbox. After its refresh, this stunning, “Ultramar” T296 will be a welcome and competitive entry for the CER2 championship, HSR and/or SVRA races and – last but not least – Le Mans Classic 2020.

Make: Cooper
Name: T39 Bobtail
Year: 1955

Postwar England struggled with crippling shortages but privation often leads to adaptation, innovation and revolution. John and Charles Cooper followed that path to success, building up Cooper Cars into one of the most accomplished and revered motorsport enterprises. In the process, utilizing Owen Maddock’s innovative 1954 chassis design, Cooper Cars forged a new revolution in sportscar racing with the Cooper T39 “Bobtail” of 1955-1956.

The initial T39 was powered by a Coventry Climax FeatherWeightAutomotive (FWA) 1100cc four cylinder engine nestled within a tubular chassis. The lack of purpose-built racing parts forced Cooper to adapt components from various sources, but innovation is clearly shown in the driver’s center seating and in the aluminium alloy body’s truncated rear, fashioned by Maddock to optimize aerodynamics. Hence the nickname of “Manx Tail’ or “Bobtail”. Total production is unknown but fewer than 15 are thought to exist today.

When born, this rare 1955 Cooper T39 “Bobtail” was equipped with a 1098ccm Climax FWA Engine number FWA-4 which indicates that this was the very 1st engine delivered by Coventry Climax to John Cooper (the first 2 engines went to Kieft and the 3rd engine went to Lotus) and – as such – indicates that this car was a work’s car (unfortunately there is no remaining Cooper chassis number registration prior to 1957).

There is no firm evidence for the car’s early (1st five years) race history but - given its very early engine nr - there is indication to believe that this was the Cooper T39 driven by Ivor Bueb during the 1955 season, its 1st race being the Easter Monday International Race at Goodwood where Bueb finished an impressive 3rd. At the following race, the International Meeting at Silverstone on 7-5-1955, Ivor Bueb won both the 1100cc and 1500cc class (finishing in front of all 2 litre cars)!

A Cooper T39 “Bobtail” was then entered by the Cooper works for the 1956 Le Mans 24hr race. This Le Mans car received certain modifications to the chassis. Later in 1956 Roy Salvadori, driving a Cooper T39, wins a race in Oporto, Portugal. This may well be a coincidence, but it is interesting to note that the first formal history document of chassis CS-II-1-55  is a Portuguese “Libretto” (Road registration) dated August 8th, 1960 in which the engine is listed as “FWA-4” and the car is listed as “Cooper experimental 1956”. The car’s original chassis (which is separate but comes with the car) clearly shows various in-period modifications (Le Mans 1956?). Interesting to note is that – in addition to the “libretto” - the car also carries a chassis plate issued by the Portuguese Historic Automobile Club.

In 1960 this Bobtail is registered in Portugal by Joao Azevedo and has remained in the hands of the Azevedo family for a very long time : until 1997. In the 60’s the car has been entered regularly in races in Spain and Portugal and, apparently, it has also been raced in Angola for some time. Unfortunately the quality of the period drivers and the limited size of the engine have prevented it to achieve very notable results.

A broken rear suspension and some chassis damage (possibly resulting from an accident in the mid 70’s) relegated it to a place in the back of the Azevedo garage.

In 1998, the car was discovered and bought by John Harper (UK) who commissioned a full rebuild by renown Croswaithe & Gardiner during 2000 and 2001. The rebuild included the replacement of the chassis (the original chassis is with the car), the engine was replaced with a 1495cc Climax FWB engine (from Sid Hool) and the brakes were also uprated to FWB spec .

After its rebuild in 2001, this stunning T39 “Bobtail” was bought by the current owner and has been a welcomed participant on the European historic racing scene including various LeMans Classic event, Goodwood Revival, etc. where it has always been a class podium finisher beating the larger capacity cars due to its light weight (400kg) and wonderful handling. (As an interesting anecdote : nearly 50 years after Savadori’s 1956 Oporto race win, the car won the 50ies sports car race at the 2005 Oporto Historic Grand Prix.)

This rare and genuine Cooper T39 “Bobtail” is completely race-ready with a refreshed engine which has only 10 hours on it. It also comes with a current 2016 FIA HTP (valid till 31/12/2026) and is located in Antwerp, Belgium where an inspection is welcomed subject to appointment.

Make: Porsche
Name: 911 Carrera 2.7 RS (Touring)
Year: 1973

We have the pleasure to offer for sale this concours winning 1973 Porsche 2.7 Carrera RS Touring with chassis nr 911 360 0671 for sale.

Highlights :

- M472 early chassis number with thin gauge steel

- Italian delivery car in perfect restored condition with matching engine and gearbox

- with in-period race history (Giro d’Italia, etc.)

- one of only 71 cars delivered in Viper Green

- with original toolkit, compressor, original seats & interior carpets (separate)

This car was delivered in February 1973 with engine nr 6630680 and gearbox nr 7830667 to its first Italian owner Emilio Encole of Milan. With two subsequent Milanese owners, #0671 was then purchased by Como based Flavio Vigano who used the car from 1977 to 1979 in various Italian races and hill climbs with excellent results.  

Over the next 15 years, the car passed through several other Italian owners (all of which are known and documented) until it was bought in 2002 by Marcello Medici who ordered a full restoration of the car by the best Italian craftsmen and specialists (Cremonini for the  bodywork and paint, Biasseti for the mechanicals and Ferraresi for the interior).  When finished and during his 10 year subsequent ownership, Mr Medici coveted his 2.7 RS and occasionally showed it in Porsche Italy concours events.  

In 2013, we brokered the sale of #0671 to its prior owner who used the car sparingly while in his Austrian vacation residence. Earlier this year, we took the car in part-exchange and hereby offer it for sale.

This Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Touring is one of only 71 cars delivered in striking Viper Green. As it is an early chassis-number, it has thin gauge steel thereby shaving 38 kg of the car’s weight. The VIN-plate and chassis numbers are all present and authentic with matching engine and gearbox. It comes with its original Sports seats (separate), carpets (separate), toolkit and compressor. Italian and Austrian road registration documents.

This is clearly an exceptional 2.7 RS which is priced-to-sell in today’s market and ready to be cherished by its next, lucky custodian!

Make: Lola
Name: T292-DFV
Year: 1973

We are delighted to offer this rare, ex-Lehmann, Jauslin and Rosso Bianco collection Lola T292-DFV for sale on behalf of its current owner.

Highlights :

  • The only example of a T292 delivered by the Lola factory in 3-litre specification for the Cosworth DFV engine
  • Early in-period race history with Walter Lehmann and Ruedi Jauslin with both Cosworth DFV and Renault V6 engines prior to the car being bought by Peter Kaus of the Rosso Bianco Collection in 1984
  • Sold by Rosso Bianco collection in 2006 to Lord Irvine Laidlaw and sympathetically restored by Simon Hadfield Motorsport. Sold by Laidlaw in 2010 and then maintained by Pearson Engineering.
  • Remarkably original with original monocoque, gearbox and bodywork
  • Multiple Le Mans Classic entrant and eligible for every historic race event such as Peter Auto’s CER2, Pre-80 Endurance and others where it is a unique and front running car

The early 70ies represent the pinnacle of Sportscar racing with a World Sports Car Championship filled with evocative cars from Ferrari, Alfa Romeo Tipo 33, Matra and Gulf Mirage. Against these heavyweights, some other smaller manufacturers such as Lola and Chevron were also fielding competitive cars in both the 2-litre and 3-litre class. Starting in 1971 Lola developed the very successful T29x (2-litre) and T28x (3-litre) series of cars as a follow-on to their championship winning T210 and T212.

Although not being tagged as T28x, this very Lola T292 was supplied new with chassis tag HU50 to Lola agent Bonnier in Switzerland on the 24th of April 973 as a special project car in red colour and equipped with a Cosworth DFV engine and FGA gearbox as listed on invoice 2191.  Shortly thereafter, HU50 was bought by its 1st owner Walter Lehmann who would only race the car twice in 1973 and kept it without any further races until 1978 when he sold it to Swiss Ruedi Jauslin. Contrary to Lehmann, Jauslin used HU50 regularly in both hill-climbs and race events in various engine and bodywork configurations until 1984 when the car – equipped with a 2 litre Renault V6 engine - was sold to Peter Kaus of the Rosso Bianco collection in Germany where it remained untouched until December 2006 when the car was auctioned by Bonhams at their London Olympia sale.

HU50 was bought by Robert Parker who shortly thereafter (2007) sold the car to well known collector and historic racer Lord Ervine Laidlaw. Laidlaw immediately tasked Simon Hadfield Motorsport to race prepare the car and – while doing so – it was found that the car was in exceptional original and un-molested condition causing the restoration to become a sympathetic preservation project wherever possible. Crack testing done, fuel cells replaced, a period-correct long-stroke DFV engine was sourced and rebuilt by Geoff Richardson Engineering, the original FGA gearbox rebuilt and the car repainted in Lord Laidlaw’s burgundy with silver stripe colour. HU50 was then campaigned by Laidlaw on the European historic racing scene including Le mans Classic 2008, quite often beating the competition.

After having campaigned the car for two seasons HU50 was sold in 2010 to fellow historic racer and collector Carlos Monteverde who has campaigned HU50 at various Peter Auto events including Le Mans Classic 2014, CER2 races at Paul Ricard and many other events across Europe. Maintenance of the car was done by Pearson Engineering and the engine by Geoff Richardson. Most recently, the car has been returned to its correct “white with tri-coloured stripes” livery and DFV airbox as raced by Ruedi Jauslin.   

HU50 was then bought in 2018 by its current owner who – for various reasons - has not been able to race car and given us the sale mandate. Not surprisingly given its past owners and preparers, HU50 is in excellent, race-ready condition with belts, fuel cell and fire systems all current and the DFV engine having not more than 6 hours on it. The car will need the standard required crack-testing, comes with a current 2017 FIA HTP and a good spares package.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a unique and remarkably original Lola T292 with DFV Lola factory credentials and impeccable provenance. With the 2019 race season approaching, HU50 continues to be ready to shine again in all the events it is eligible for such as Peter Auto’s CER2, Le Mans Classic and HSCC’s Pre-80 Endurance
