Make: Porsche
Name: 911 Carrera RS 3.0
Year: 1974
Description:

** NEWS ** This car has now been wrapped in its 1975 Le Mans 24hr Max-Moritz livery! 

We have the pleasure to offer this exceptional Porsche 911 Carrera RS(G) 3.0 for sale on behalf of its current owner. 

As evidenced by its impressive 10+ year race history under the Max Moritz banner, this particular car is also known as "The Max Moritz RS".

Introduced in 1974, the Carrera RS 3.0 is probably the ultimate dual purpose road/racing car. Amongst the rarest of all the 911 derivatives, it was built to replace the ultra-successful 2.7 RS and 2.8 RSR from the previous year of which 1580 cars had been built. Because the new 3.0 RS was judged to be an evolution of the 2.7 RS, the FIA regulated that only a minimum of 100 examples of the new car needed to be built for homologation in either the Group 3 or Group 4 racing classes. A total of 109 Carrera RS 3.0 models were built for 1974 and of those, 52 were RS models to Group 3 spec with the remaining 55 examples built to RSR Group 4 spec. The chassis was largely similar to that of the 1973 2.8 RSR with the brake system from the 917 and was effectively an evolution of the Penske built RS 3.0 cars built for the ’74 IROC series. The use of thinner metal panels and a spartan interior enabled the weight of the new 3.0 RS to be reduced to somewhere around 900 kg.

This particular car, chassis “9018” was the first of the 52 cars completed to Group 3 spec by Porsche in mid-December ’73 and delivered new in January ’74 to its first customer, Claus Utz of Leitzenger, Germany. Entered under the “Sixtant Racing Team” banner and prepared by legendary car builder Max Moritz, Utz and fellow German amateur racers Hortz Gödel and Jean-Claude Berlin raced the RSG in German DRM and DARM national championship events with Gödel winning at Mainz-Finthen. This was the first of at least 29 outright wins that “9018” would achieve over the next six years. As well as the German national championship races, “9018” also took part in the Nurburgring 1000 Kms four times and the 1975 Le Mans 24 Hours. That same year Utz won at Sembach and at Mainz-Finthen, but the following year was much more successful with Utz winning 11 races outright.

At the end of 1976 the RS was sold to Jurgen Lassig who raced the car over the two years with Boss sponsorship winning six races in 1977 and nine races in 1978. With the purchase of a new 934/5 for Lassig to race in 1979, the RS lay unused and in storage at Max Moritz Racing until being sold in 1980 through Autofarm-Porsche to Don Coaster of Burton-on-Trend in England. Retained until 1989, Don sold the car to Charlie Agg who was looking for a civilised fast road car as his daily user, a job the car performed admirably until Charlie sold the car in 2001 to Nicolaus Springer who then sold #9018 to well known classic car collectors Lukas Huni and Conrad Ulrich. They owned “9018” for the next 12 years until it was sold to the current owner in 2013. During 2014 and 2015, a full no-expense spared restoration was done by Swiss Porsche expert Marc de Siebenthal and the car was also repainted in its original white livery with gold “Carrera” side lettering. The restoration was completed in October 2015 and fresh FIA HTP papers were issued for #9018. Since its restoration, the car has been used sparingly in selected historic events such as the 2017 Cento ore Modena rally.

The condition of the car is near concours and as it left the factory in 1974. Despite its impressive racing career, the car retains its original engine (type 911/77 with engine number 6840037) and 915 gearbox making it a matching numbers car ! All engine and mechanical components are correct 3.0 RS specification. The original "BOSS" Max Moritz front trunk lid and bumper come with the car as well as the original Fahrzeugbrief, Porsche Certificate and an extensive ownership race history file in both German and English.

This is arguably one of the very best of the rare 911 3.0 RS cars existing. Its amazing race pedigree including a Le Mans 24hr finish make it a very collectible but also very usable car which is eligible for any historic event around the world. A car for the serious Porsche collector who only wants the best !

Make: March
Name: 782 F2
Year: 1978
Description:

We have the pleasure to offer this genuine and impeccable 1978 March 782-22 for sale.

The March 782 is without doubt the best F2 car ever produced, straightforward and easy to run, it was no surprise demand for the car was huge. March had used the same basic chassis for all their single seater designs since the 1971 F2 712M, but for 1978 produced a slimmer monocoque for the 782 in which Bruno Giacomelli won the 1978 European F2 championship. Including the prototype and the show car built for Polifac, 30 March 782s were built in total with this particular car, chassis 782/22 being delivered new in April ’78 to Markus Hotz of HORAG, the Swiss March importer who prepared the car for Fredy Lienhart, his partner in Lista Racing. 782-22 continued to race successfully in Switzerland and abroad until the early 80ies.

A full race history comes with the car and is available upon request. The ownership history of 782-22 is continuous from day 1 up to the current owner.

Just recently fully gone through and checked-over, 782-22 is equipped with a freshly rebuild, zero km HART 2 litre engine, and is sold in Brian Henton’s “F&S Properties” livery. It comes with a full history file and 2018 FIA HTP papers. In addition, the car comes with good spares which includes 2 new wheel sets and miscellaneous running spares.

Needless to say that this genuine March 782 is ready to be a front running car – as it was in-period - in the 2018 HSCC’s F2 championship or P.Peter’s new F2 race series.

Make: Wolf-Williams
Name: FW05
Year: 1976
Description:

*** NEWS 22/02/2018: This car has been accepted for the 2018 Monaco Historic GP ! 

We are excited to offer this unique Wolf-Williams FW05 chassis 3 for sale.

At the end of 1975, wealthy Canadian businessman Walter Wolf bought the assets of the Hesketh racing team who had run out of money and had quit the sport. Amongst those assets was the Hesketh 308C/1 and an unbuilt spare tub, 308C/2. Wolf also bought 60% of Frank Williams Racing and reformed the team as Walter Wolf Racing for 1976 with the 308C becoming the Williams FW05. Chassis 308C/1 was re-numbered FW05/1 with the unbuilt spare-tub 308C/2 then built up by Williams as FW05/2.

By the mid-point of the season FW05/3 was built and would be the only one of the three FW05s to be made from scratch by Williams and the only proper FW05 as opposed to a renamed 308C. FW05/3 was also the last car built by Frank Williams Racing in its original format and was raced by Jacky Ickx and Arturo Merzario for the remainder of the 1976 F1 season.

As both FW05/1 and FW05/2 have been returned to their Hesketh 308C specification and livery, FW05/3 is the only example remaining.

A full race and ownership history is available upon request.

This stunning Wolf-Williams FW05 F1 is presented and sold by its current UK owner in 100% race ready condition as evidenced by the following condition description:

FW05/3 been maintained with no expense spared and underwent a full rebuild after its Monaco 2016 participation. Renewed crack testing is being finished which is valid until May 2019. Extinguisher expires in 2018 and belts are valid until 2020 as is the fuel cell. The Cosworth short-stroke engine is a Richardson built unit with 600 miles on it (so 400 miles left). The gearbox has brand new internals with only 1 hour running.

Spares include one full set of wets mounted on rims, one full set of slicks mounted on rims, various boxes of suspension components, some spare bodywork and wings etc., plus the normal accompaniment of old spares accumulated over many years. It is currently located in England and could be viewed at any time subject to appointment.

FW05/3 has participated in the Monaco Historic GP five consecutive times since 2008 with great success including a podium finish.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a race-ready, unique and iconic F1 Williams which has been driven in the “Hunt versus Lauda” 1976 year by two famous drivers of the period.

Make: March
Name: 761
Year: 1976
Description:

*** NEWS 22/02/2018: This car has been accepted for the 2018 Monaco Historic GP ! 

We are delighted to offer this stunning 1976 ex-Arturo Merzario “OVORO” March 761 for sale.

British manufacturer and F1 constructor March Engineering began operation in 1969 and was created by Max Mosley, Alan Rees, Graham Coaker and Robin Herd. Each of these 4 individuals brought unique qualities and talents to the team with Herd being the designer, Rees the team manager, Coaker oversaw production and Mosley handled the commercial side of the business.

March was to provide chassis for customers competing in all racing categories starting with a F3 car in 1969 followed by an F1 car in 1970 : the March 701 which they used as team cars and also to supply to privateers. They also produced a highly successful F2 car which shared the chassis of its F1 brethren.

Introduced for the start of the 1976 Formula 1 season, the March 761 produced by Robin Herd was another straight forward alloy-tubbed chassis design which was low cost to build and easy to maintain and repair. Compared to its predecessor, the 761 chassis had a wider track and was stronger. Eight 761s were built in total and during the season more than a few cars were required to be rebuilt on new tubs due to various accidents by its F1 drivers.

For 1976, March decided to run four “factory” cars split into two teams. The “A” team would be managed by Max Mosely who would run Vittorio Brambilla and Ronnie Peterson, with the “B” team looked after by Robin Herd and running Hans-Joachim Stuck in one car, and Arturo Merzario in the other car who would bring along his own sponsorship from Ovoro, the Italian liquor company. It is this car which is offered for sale by its current owner. As there are several March 761 (and other models) with dubious history, this is not the case for chassis 761-04 which has continuous history from new with all six (incl. March) prior owners known :

1976 – works car, entered by March Engineering for Arturio Merzario
1977 – acquired by Gerd Biechteler for the UK Aurora Series
1982 – Yuam Lequime – not raced
2000 – Bernard de Dryver – bought for restoration
2002 – Jean Louis Duret – raced in GP Masters and Monaco HGP 2004
2005 – Peter Dunn – raced in GP masters and Monaco HGP 2006 and 2008
2012 – current owner – raced in GP Masters and Monaco HGP

This “OVORO” March 761-04 – of which the in-period race history can be seen below in the History section – is sold in 100% race-ready condition. The current owner has always maintained this car with no-expenses-spared and received a full rebuild in 2017. It has a fresh, zero miles G. Richardson long-stroke DFV engine, a new fuel cell, 2017 crack testing, fire system and comes with new seat belts. This car has last been raced in the winter of 2017 and needs nothing further spent on it other than possibly a custom seat for its new, lucky owner. 761-04 has been setup and developed and has shown to be a very competitive and front running car which – in the right hands – could win race F at the Monaco 2018 Historic GP for which it has been entered. 761-04 also comes with a 2015 FIA HTP and a good spares package which includes multiple sets of wheel, gear-ratios, front nose, suspension items and miscellaneous running spares.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a genuine, no-stories and striking March 761 which competed in the legendary “Hunt versus Lauda” 1976 year and is part of the golden era of F1 !
