Make: Ford
Name: Fairlane 427 Holman Moody
Year: 1964
Description:

This amazing Ford Fairlane 427 is the 1st of only 3 cars built by ‘Holman Moody” (HM) as a correct replica of the unique 1964 Daytona running Ford Fairlane 427 (which sadly does no longer exist as it was broken up by Alan Mann in the early 70’s). Holman Moody built virtually all the factory Ford race cars of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.

As the other 2 cars built by HM are owned by 1 collector in USA who does not race them, this is the only racing H&M Ford Fairlane which can be seen on the race track !

Using the pictures from the HM archives with lots of research and involving in-period HM-employees, the build was done in 2002-2003 by order of its 1st German owner. Using a proper 1964 Ford Fairlane 500 2-door hardtop coupe as donor car, the resulting specification is exactly as per the original :

  • Ford 427ci side oiler V8 race engine (built by H&M) and further developed by renowned tuner BS-protos,
  • twin Holley carburettors
  • FIA roll-cage,
  • Independant suspension with 2 shock absorbers per wheel,
  • Fibreglass body including bumpers, doors, bonnet and boot. Steel roof.
  • Jerico 4 speed aluminium top loader,
  • 10” wide wheels, 12” vented front disk brakes,
  • double front wishbone; 5 link rear suspension & panhard rod,
  • 155 litre FIA fuel cell,
  • Diff and gearbox oil cooler.

This handsome “big brute” Fairlane comes with an extensive spares package along with ample documentation of the build and of the original Holman Moody Ford Fairlane, including a comprehensive 5 kg A3 size book! There is an old, 2009 FIA HTP which is up for renewal.

The car is on-the-button with proven reliability and it is ready to offer its new owner lots of fun and excitement being able to keep pace with other GTP’s such as the GT40 (see race results below) culminating in its 2016 Goodwood Revival St Mary’s Trophy win.

To run at Goodwood, the car was repainted in its current cream white w/red livery, a proper T10 gearbox was purchased and installed together with four steel H&M wheels and steel front and rear bumpers (replacing the fibre-glass bumpers).

Make: Osella
Name: PA7
Year: 1979
Description:

We have the pleasure to offer this Italian Championship winning 1979 Osella PA7 chassis 079 for sale on behalf of its long-term Italian owner.

Chassis 079 was delivered by Osella to well-known Italian racer Carlo Franchi better known through his alias “GIMAX” on March 9th 1979 equipped with a BMW 4-Cylinder M12/7 engine. GIMAX immediately took control of the Italian championship winning the 1979 two-Litre Group 6 title. Among his outstanding drives was the 1979 1000km of Monza where he finished 2nd overall behind the 3-litre DFV equipped Lola T286 of Zorzi-Capoferri.

The race history of Osella PA7 #079 race is well documented in the “Enzo Osella” book by Gianni Tomazzoni.

The car was eventually sold by "GIMAX" to Franco Bottaretto who did not race the car after which the current owner bought it from Bottareto in 1999. The car then underwent a full rebuild and has been raced successfully on the historic racing scene until a few years ago. Prior to bringing #079 up for sale, it was fully gone through and the M12/7 engine was rebuild by an Italian engine specialist (documents available). The engine only has about 2 hours running.

The car is very well documented with factory attestation, it has current 2017 FIA HTP papers and comes with a spare set of wheels.

This championship winning Osella PA7 is excellent value while being eligible for CER2 as well as all other late 70ies group 6 races where it should be a competitive entry.

Make: Cooper
Name: Bristol T20 Mk1
Year: 1952
Description:

We are delighted to offer this rare 1952 ex-John Barber, ex-Sir Clive Edwards Cooper Bristol T20 Sports Car for sale on behalf of its long-term owner.

John Barber was racing an F3 Cooper-JAP 500 at the start of 1952 before buying T20 CB/7/52 in F2 spec and racing it for the first at the beginning of August at Boreham. He then brought it north to Scotland, to Turnberry in South Ayrshire, for the 1st Scottish National Trophy. The race attracted a fairly good entry among which Hawthorn, Moss, Villoressi, Gaze and a few others. Barber took part in the Libre race which allowed in the F1 cars, but retired, but finished 2nd in the F2 "Grand Prix", so called because F2 was the GP class for the world championship. These races were the closest thing Scotland has ever had to a Scottish GP. Barber then finished 8th at Goodwood before bringing the car back up to Scotland and racing it at Charterhall at the end of the season, where he crashed it pretty heavily.

Barber rebuilt the car over the winter as the Golding-Cooper with Disco Volante bodywork and road registration “NXH586” (which is still with the car today!), radiator slung under the nose, and left-hand drive. It was based on a concept that Cooper had been considering for a Mille Miglia effort, but which never happened. Barber finished 4th with the "flying saucer" at Snetterton in May '53. He then took the car to the Douglas circuit in the Isle of Man for the British Empire Trophy after which he did another race at Snetterton finishing 3rd, but the car failed to start it's last race as a "Disco Volante" at Silverstone.

At the end of 1953, the car then passed through the hands of "MacKenzie-Lowe" who sent the car back to the Cooper works who sent it to Peel Coachworks. They took off the loose hanging and flimsy Disco Volante bodywork and replaced it with the DB3S style body it wears today !

CB/7/52 was then sold to Sir Clive Edwards who used it extensively in hillclimbs and sprints from 1955 to 1960. Sir Edwards sold the car to Alistair McClelland, a garage owner who club raced and sprinted the car for a couple of seasons until he sold it in 1963 to former RAC/MSA CEO John Quenby, then still only 21. Quenby raced the car for a year and a half and then sold it to a unknown stockbroker from Dulwich when Quenby went to Australia to work for a while. The car then went to a succession of owners, some of which raced CB/7/52 in VSCC Historic races until it was bought again by John Quenby in 1997 who started a complete restoration of the car including its 2-litre 6 cylinder Bristol Type 100B engine. This took several years and – when completed - Quenby sold his favourit Cooper T20 Sports Car in 2006 to its current owner, a well known Dutch collector and historic racer who has campaigned CB/7/52 successfully on the historic racing scene including multiple appearances at the Goodwood Revival.

The car – still with its 1953 Road Registration NXH586 – is sold in race-ready condition, comes with an extensive history file and a 2016 FIA HTP (valid until 2026). As one of only nine Cooper Sports cars built and the only one with a gorgeous “DB3S-like” body, CB/7/52 is a welcome and competitive entry in all the prestigious 50ies sports car races such as Woodcote Trophy, Goodwood Revival, etc.. while it is also eligible for the Mille Miglia !

thumb_Lola T70 no 78 Silverstone Classic July 07 (3)
Make: Lola
Name: T70 Mk3B Factory Continuation
Year: 1969
Description:

*** NEWS : The Lola T70 Mk3B factory continuation cars are now also eligible to run with Peter Auto in the 2019 CER1 championship ! ***

We are pleased to offer this stunning Lola T70 Mk3B 2nd series factory continuation car with chassis HU76/160 for sale.

Lola Cars Ltd manufactured six 2nd series continuation cars (the 1st series were build in the early 80ies) between 2006 and 2010. HU76/160 was the 2nd one build and the 1st customer car (as Lola kept HU76/159 with them for promotion).

It was delivered in its Scuderia Filipinetti livery to its first owner, father and son Esmond and Andrew Smith, at Le Mans Classic in 2006. Maintained by Gary Pearson with no expense spared, Andrew raced the car in the World Sportscar Masters from 2006 to 2009 with many outright wins and podium finishes. The car also participated in the 2008 Le Mans parade for Lola 50th Anniversary in 2008.  After having been unused for a few years, it was then fully rebuild by Pearson prior to our brokering the sale of HU76/159 to its current owner in January of 2016 who has used the car sparingly with only about 3 hours running!

As such it is no surprise that HU76/159 is in perfect condition with a Steve Warrior 5.0 litre Chevy small block engine on carburettors, LG-600 gearbox, new fuel cells, rebuilt and crack tested suspension and rebuild brakes. Everything on the car is current and it needs nothing spend further. In addition to a 2016 FIA HTP, spares included are 3 sets of wheels, front body section and some gear-ratio’s.

Being one of a select group of only six official Lola T70 Mk3B 2nd series continuation cars, HU76/160 is now ready to make its re-appearance on the historic racing scene where it remains a welcomed and very competitive entry.
