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

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.

thumb_Ford_GT40_1027-ad1 (Kopie) (Kopie)
Make: FORD
Name: GT40 Mk1
Year: 1965
Description:
  • Born as 1965 production racing coupé
  • The February 1966 Brussels Motor Show car
  • MGM camera car used in the making of the film “Grand Prix” driven by 1961 World Champion Phil Hill
  • Proven race winning pre-66 (FIA Period F) GT40
  • Fully race prepared with current FIA HTP and extensive spares

We are delighted to offer this genuine and important 1965 Ford GT40 chassis #GT40 P/1027 for sale.

P/1027 was born as a 1965 production racing coupé and – upon completion in “Belgian Yellow” – was immediately shipped to Brussels for display at the 1966 Brussels Motor Show.

It was then shipped back to Ford and repainted in white with a blue center strip when it was sold to the MGM Film Studio for use as one of the two film cars for John Frankenheimer’s film “Grand Prix” (the other film car was a Shelby Cobra), one of the best motor racing films ever made.

Just how did John Frankenheimer achieve those stunning car-to-car shots, brought to the cinema in very 1960s split-screen editing? Many of them were filmed from an adapted version of P/1027, a potent racing car converted to high-speed camera car and driven during the 1966 Grand Prix season by drivers such as 1961 World Champion Phil Hill and kiwi racer Jack Brabham. Beneath a predictably preposterous plot, the action is fairly realistic and considerably enhanced by the high-speed stunts where stars such as James Garner (a very handy driver) followed the modified GT40, just inches away from the camera lens. The professional drivers behind the wheel of the 200mph GT40 needed real guts to maintain a realistic pace at a circuit such as Monaco, Spa, River Side, Watkins Glen, Sebring, etc.. The car’s 500+ page history file contains many beautiful pictures of P/1027 in filming action.

Filming continued well into 1967 and, after its vital backstage role on the silver screen, P/1027 was sold by MGM to Charles Sechan in Prospect, Pennsylvania, who resprayed it maroon with gold sill lines and used it as a road car. In February 1968 it was sold to Jim Toensing, the of Minneapolois. Jim vintage raced it and following a shunt at Elkhart Lake, next owner James Ladwig commissioned a complete restoration. The restoration was to the exact original specifications using original components and parts. The end result was one of the finest and most correct GT-40's in the world. It was judged "best race car" at the meadow brook concours in 1993 after which the P/1027 was displayed at the Briggs Cunningham Automotive Museum in Costa Mesa, California, where it remained until the museum’s closure in the mid 1990s. Ownership then passed to well known Hong Kong based collector Chip Connor who titled the car in Nevada where it joined his collection until 2002.

Arch enthusiast and doyen of the collecting world, Sir Anthony Bamford, then bought it, via Barret Jackson in August 2002, for $405,000. Entrusting its race preparation to Gelscoe Motorsport who produced the 2005 Whitsun Trophy-winning machine driven by Sam Hancock setting a then blistering 1:23.7 lap record.

In 2006 it was sold to Lord Irvine Laidlaw who campaigned it – now in his familiar maroon/silver colour scheme, and run by the experienced Simon Hadfield – at the 2008 Le Mans Classic and at Dijon in 2009. It was then sold to long time historic racer and collector Carlos Monteverde who returned it to its original livery and ran it just once, at the 2010 Le Mans Classic after which we sold it to its current owner who has successfully campaigned the car on the historic racing scene participating in many of the prestigious events such as the Goodwood Revival and Members Meeting, Le Mans Classic, Patrick Peter’s CER races, etc..

Chassis P/1027 is sold in totally race-ready condition equipped with new fuel bladders fitted by Premier Fuel systems (certificates available) and with current Period F FIA HTP papers valid until 2025. The car comes with an extensive spares package and an impressive 500+ page history dossier compiled by GT40 historian Ronnie Spain.

This genuine, race-born Ford GT40 car represents the perfect opportunity for those looking for a potent historic racing car with fascinating history which is a welcome entry into the world's most prestigious evenets while it will also fit prominently in any serious car collection.

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. Please note that the car can also be purchased without the Hart engine.

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.
