Year: 1965
Description:

We have the pleasure to offer this 1965 Corvette C2 (C2 for 2nd generation) aka “Corvette Stingray” for sale.

The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C2 was built between 1962 and 1967 and, in 1965, this gorgeous, blue-chip American classic received disc brakes all-round and the awesome 425bhp 396 cubic inch (7 litre) Turbojet 'big block engine'

This car, which the current UK owner has had the pleasure to enjoy for more than 10 years, has been meticulously prepared to full FIA specification. It has a fresh, new Tim Adams big block engine delivering 560 bhp, a G-Force T10 gearbox and a Gripper differential. In the winter of 2017, the car has undergone some further improvements such as the installation of  a new, 170 liter fuel cell, new exhaust, chassis cleaning and painting, new side windows with vents, etc.. Everything on the car is current and - even better - it comes with a new, 2016 FIA HTP valid until 2026.

Spares are 3 sets of wheels and miscellaneous running spares. There are also many other spare parts available which are optional.

This Black/Black Corvette Stingray is located in UK and is a well know car that has been run successfully on the European historic racing scene among which the Goodwood Revival TT where it finished a very respectable 9th overall.

Make: Ford
Name: Capri RS2600
Year: 1971
Description:

We are very pleased to offer this stunning 1971 “RIPOLIN” Capri RS2600 for sale.

Ford’s motorsport program for the Capri was centered in Cologne, Germany and headed by Jochen Neerpasch who recognized early in its development that the Capri’s success would be achieved on the race track rather than on rallies.

This success was achieved by the RS2600 which – under Group 2 rules – was equipped with a 2900cc Weslake V6 dry-sump engine on Kugelfischer injection delivering more than 320bhp, a ZF 5-speed gearbox, uprated brakes and suspension and lightened bodywork (through fibreglass panels) resulting in an overall homologated weight of 900kg. Given this specification, it was no surprise that Ford Cologne won the 1971 and 1972 European Touring car championship with drivers such as Dieter Glemser and Jochen Mass.

The car which we have on offer was build to FIA Group 2 specification in 2014/5 by renown UK specialist Ric Wood using a Capri 1300 donor car. Ric built the car for French preparer Yvan Mahé of Equipe Europe who decided that it should be finished in its splendid French “RIPOLIN” paint company livery as raced by Gerard Larousse in the 1972 Tour de France. When finished, a rollout was done in June of 2015 after which Mahé sold it to the current owner who has raced this iconic RIPOLIN Capri in the 2016 and 2017 Peter Auto HTC championship with outstanding results : a 2nd place in 2016 and the championship win in 2017 !

This well sorted RS2600 has always been maintained with no expenses spared. The engine has 15 hours running (out of 30 hours before rebuild is needed) since a June 2016 rebuild. The wiring has been renewed as has the clutch. Seats, fire extinguisher system and belts are all current up to at least 2019. The car has received a thorough go-through and is sold in excellent, race-ready condition with a 2015 FIA HTP (valid till 2025) and an extensive spares package which includes 2 spare wheel sets,  2 drive shafts, 4 new brake discs, bearings and miscellaneous running spares.

Benefitting from a UK road registration, this stunning RIPOLIN Capri is ready to offer its new owner lots of front-running excitement both on the race track as well as in rallies around the world.

Make: Lola
Name: T70 Mk3
Year: 1968
Description:

We are delighted to offer the 1968 ex-Chuck Parson “Simoniz” / Bob Nagel “Thermo King” Lola T70 Mk3 – chassis SL73/128.

Introduced in 1967, the Lola T70 Mk3 was available in both coupe and spyder versions with the conversion from one version to the other relatively quick and simple. This enabled the car to be raced in the world championship and Group 4 races as a coupe, and as a Group 7 spyder in the Can-Am series.

SL73/128 was built as a Mk3 spyder for US Lola importer Carl Haas and was delivered new on 16th February 1968 and fitted with a Bartz prepared 365cid 5900cc Chevrolet V8 mated to a Hewland LG600 gearbox. Sponsored by Simoniz and painted in their orange and white livery, SL73/128 was raced in the 1968 United States Road Racing Championship by Chuck Parsons who finished third overall. The complete, continuous ownership and race history of this exceptional Lola T70 Mk3 can be found further below in the history section. A full and extensive history file comes with the car.

SL73/128 is arguably one of the best Mk3’s when it comes to provenance, documentation and preparation. Its ownership chain is unbroken while its race history with well known drivers Chuck Parson and Bob Nagel is excellent and fully documented. Add to this its top notch preparation with a Mathwall 5.7 liter SMB Chevy engine (only 3 hours running) and no-expenses-spared maintenance by both its prior and current owner. Interestingly, the car is currently fitted with coupe bodywork (in Simoniz livery) but also comes with a separate, complete spyder body (which has already been fitted to the car previously) so SL73/128 can be run as both coupe and spyder depending on the new owner’s preference, race venue or eligibility criteria.

Additional spares are 2 sets of wheels and miscellaneous running spares. The FIA HTP is from 2017 so valid for another 10 years. Fuel cell, seat belts and fire extinguisher are all current. There is nothing further to spend on this car to go racing.

This is a no-stories, proper pedigree Lola T70 Mk3 “big banger” which is eligible for all historic race events such as Masters WSM, CER, Le Mans Classic, Daytona 24hr classic, etc. where it is always a front running car. A properly driven T70 Mk3 is as quick as a Mk3B and is amazingly friendly and lots of fun to drive.

Make: Chevron
Name: B8
Year: 1968
Description:

Chevron cars had burst onto the GT racing scene in 1966 with a dream debut for its B3, the very first GT car produced by the talented Derek Bennett, winning at Oulton Park in its maiden race. To racing driver John Lepp, observer at the Chevron's first track test at the same venue, this came as no surprise having already seen the GT put in a lap no less than six seconds under the GT record.

Its closely resembling successor, the Chevron B8 - more often than not powered by BMW's two liter, overhead camshaft, four cylinder engine - went onto dominate national GT racing and enjoy much success in Europe from 1968 onwards. The B8 used a space frame chassis with all independent wishbone/coil spring suspension, while its svelte and curvaceous fiberglass bodywork made it one of the prettiest GT/sports racers of its era. With its mid-mounted engine mated to a Hewland transaxle, it was duly homologated for the international Group 4 class, and it too proved highly successful: the car made its race debut at Cadwell Park on March 3rd 1968 and just over three weeks later, an example, driven by John Silverstone, took an outright win in the GT race at Silverstone; John Lepp then went on to take overall honours in the 1969 RAC Sports Car Championship.

By the time production ceased in 1970, Chevron had only built 44 B8 models of which 34 with the BMW 2.0 litre engine and 5 with the Ford 1600cc FVA engine. Whichever power unit was fitted, the B8 remained a superbly effective racing car and highly competitive in international racing, thanks to its combination of superb agility and outright speed. The situation is no different today in historic racing where the Chevron B8 and Bolton's best is a regular podium finisher in sports and GT car events.

We are proud to offer an ex-John Lepp Chevron B8 chassis CHDBE-51 for sale; one of only 5 cars build with an FVA engine which is also the power unit in the car today. Chassis #51 has well documented, continuous ownership from new (see the History section below) and benefits from excellent in-period international race history including two participations at the Nurburgring 1000km in 1968 and 1969.

CHDBE-51 currently resides in the U.S.A. and has been in its current ownership since 2005. It has always been maintained with no expenses spared and is in gorgeous condition which includes its fresh, zero miles FVA engine. It is sold in 100% race-ready condition and comes with extensive spares including wheels, bodywork, etc.. Chassis #51 has a USA issued (ACCUS) FIA HTP which needs renewal.

This pedigree and immaculate Chevron B8 is eligible for all historic race events around the world including Le Mans Classic, Daytona 24hr classic, Masters WSM, Peter Auto CER, etc. where it will be a competitive and welcomed entry.

Make: Chevron
Name: B23 (DFV)
Year: 1973
Description:

We are very pleased to offer this unique Chevron B23, the only Chevron sportscar which was powered with a Cosworth DFV engine by the factory. As the car started life as a B23 with chassis number B23-73-21, we will refer to the car by its chassis number.

Being one of the few DFV-engined sportscars existing, this stunning Chevron has shown its capabilities by winning various CER races during the 2016 season.

Richardson DFV engine (zero hours)and still has its original, rebuild FG400 gearbox. Fuel cell, crack test report, belts and fire extinguisher system are all current.

thumb_Lola T70 no 78 Silverstone Classic July 07 (3)
Make: Lola
Name: T70 Mk3B 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.
