Completed over the course of 3 years from 2009 to 2012, this left-hand drive 904/6 GTS was a collaboration between the vendor and Duel Motorsport of The Netherlands, one of the country's leading historic Porsche experts.

It has a lightened flywheel and alloy clutch pressure plate. In addition the gearbox is a new 904 le Mans type casing with 904 input shaft (changeable 2nd gear), ZF limited slip differential and Porsche motorsport driveshafts.

This original Lotus Cortina was registered in England on 23/06/1966 where it resided until bought in 1992 by Italian historic racer Fernando Della Casa who has the Cortina fully raced prepared in the Bologna workshop of Adolfo Romani. Della Casa raced the car until 1997 after which it changed hands a few time until it was bought by the current Italian owner in 2009 who – in 2011 – started a full restoration and race preparation.
After dismantling the Cortina to the bare chassis, a custom T45 roll cage was installed together with aluminium doors and bonnet. The car was painted in the original Ermin white with the Sherwood green stripe. All mechanical parts were checked and/or rebuild resulting in the following specification:
After the Cortina having undergone the above preparation, it was only used by the current owner for approximately 5 race hours, so everything is still in excellent, fresh condition. Its last outing was an Italian hillclimb event of which the video can be watched through the link further below.
The car comes with current FIA HTP papers and a valid V5 for street registration. The following spares are with the car :
Set of rear leaf springs, transmission parts and a pair of drive shafts.
Due to a problem with the engine, this wonderful Lotus Cortina is sold without engine so the new owner can source a fresh engine to his specification. Other than the engine, the car is fully ready to go. It is based in Italy (close to Milan) where it can be inspected subject to appointment.
We are pleased to offer this wonderful FIA legal, racing E-type for sale which is in excellent, race ready condition.
While keeping its steel monococque chassis, it has aluminium doors, bonnet and trunk.
The current owner has spent significant money on this car during the last few years. Just in the last 9 months, bills totalling approximately GBP 30K show the following work been done :
Spares consist of 2 sets of wheels, spare windscreen, trottle cable, 2 original seats and miscellaneous running spares.
This gorgeous E-Type is UK road registered and benefits from new, December 2014 FIA HTP papers which show that this E-type is indeed ready to give its new owner lots of enjoyment on the road or track.More...
We are pleased to offer this immaculate Chevron B19 for sale.
The Chevron B19 was designed and introduced by Chevron founder Derek Bennett at the beginning of 1971 and followed on from the successful B8 and B16 models. As before, the car was aimed firmly with the privateer in mind, with ease of maintenance and low running costs being vital factors in its design, as well as being a competitive alternative to rival manufacture’s Lola T210. Over the following months some 35 individual B19s would be built.
B19-71-14 is well documented with its race and ownership history known from new. Standing out is its 4th OA and class winning performance in the 1973 Targa Florio !
The car has been freshly prepared and is compliant with the latest FIA regulations as evidenced by its 2015 FIA HTP papers.
The FVC engine is a new, latest spec unit built by specialist Geoff Richardson with just 4 hours running on it. Also the FT200 gearbox is fresh as are the uprights, wheel bearings, etc..
This car – which was previously running with later, non-B19 bodywork – now has a new correct B19 body supplied by Vin Malkie of Chevron racing Ltd.
This B19 is as-new and is truly fresh and race-ready. Rather than paint the car in a specific color or livery, the current owner has decided to keep it in plain white so the future owner can give it the desired livery and/or color.
The car comes with a set of spare wheels along with some old, non B19 bodywork (nose, doors and cockpit).
Needless to say that this gorgeous B19 is very usable as it is eligible for most of the historic race events around the world.More...
We are delighted to present this genuine and superbly prepared 1966 Ford GT40 Mk1 with chassis number P/1062. A front running car with continuous history from new and never seriously damaged throughout its entire life P/1062 is now offered for sale by its long-term owner.
Ford GT40 P/1062 was one of 31 road-equipped cars built by Ford Advanced Vehicles at Slough. Essentially a softened race car, the road version of the Mk1 GT40 differed in having softer suspension, less aggressive brakes, Borani wire wheels, a silenced exhaust system, a heater and windscreen demister, twin luggage boxes housed in the tail, a fully timed cloth interior, fully working door locks, and “Ford” sill badges. Despite all this softening, the GT40 as a road car wasn’t really practical for everyday use and interest was low. Having planned to build at least 50 road cars, all at a pre-calculated loss, Ford stopped at 30 units plus one prototype.
Finished in Metallichrome Toledo blue with black interior trim and fitted with the standard Cobra 289cid V8 fitted to all GT40 Mk1s, P/1062 was shipped new to Ford Division in America arriving in Detroit at the end of the December ’66 along with P/1063. On arrival both cars were assigned to Ford’s experimental Kar Kraft division. Quite what Kar Kraft did with the car is a mystery and a full year later P/1062 was still in Ford’s stock inventory in Detroit where it would remain until being assigned to be sold-off at the end of ’68. At the time of its disposal P/1062 was one of three GT40s to have a “road-modified” MkII tail fitted and was sold in early ’69 to Dr Len Cheney in California who used P/1062 as a road car until the end of the year when he sold it to an unknown buyer.
Despite the passage of time, the next few years of the history of P/1062 are a mystery, but it was owned in the late-70s by David Brown of Florida. He sold the car to Harley Cluxton in Arizona who in turn sold it to collector and racer Jeff Lewis of California. The car had by this time lost its MkII tail for a standard Mk1 item. Jeff raced the car in the West Coast historic scene in the 80s. Throughout his ownership P/1062 was painted white with a black centre stripe.
In 1991 Jeff sold the car through Mike Sheehan to Hans-Joachim Weber in Germany who then modified the car to full race spec finishing in blue with a white center stripe. Weber then became very active with the car in European historic racing during the next decade before selling P/1062 in 1999 to David McElrain, owner of P/1053. With David committed to racing P/1053, the current owner took over the driving duties of P/1062 and bought the car for himself in 2001 immediately repeating his previous year’s winning the Tour Auto, a revival of the Tour de France. Since then, P/1062 has been at the forefront of the European historic racing scene including the Le Mans Classic where it has not missed participating with success since 2004. In 2006 at Le Mans, the car suffered a flash fire which singed the bodywork but caused no real or further damage. The owner then took the opportunity to fully restore the car over the next year before returning to the track once more with multiple participations at the Goodwood Revival where P/1062 led the GT40 race in 2013 after a stellar start. Prior to running at Goodwood in 2014, P/1062 also won the Plateau 4 Le Mans Classic event.
After another good 2014 racing season, the car is now being fully serviced and it is being sold in fresh and race-ready condition with a fresh engine and gearbox, new fuel bags, new hub bearings, etc.. The 2007 FIA HTP papers are being renewed and the car comes with a set of spare wheels and running spares.
Despite not having a period racing history, P/1062’s no-stories provenance coupled with its more recent historic racing record is pretty impressive, always being a reliable front-runner in the capable hands of its current owner. Without a doubt, P/1062 is one of the very best GT40s and its next lucky owner will continue to be a welcome entrant in all the blue-ribbon historic race events around the world.
