Color: Yellow/Black Engine: Chevrolet V8 302CID
Price: SOLD Chassis#: 300-08

History:

This is a very rare and very correct F5000 car originally delivered to Sir Nicholas Williamson in June of 1969 as a yellow M10A and was raced in numerous British Hill climb events. Williamson won the 1970 Shell British Hill climb Championship in the car after converting it to a M10B. The car was sold to Jack Le Fort in 1973 and raced in sprints and speed trials and then sold to David Hipperson who used it little until 1985 when it was sold to Tony Hildebrand who raced the car at various F5000 club events in the UK and was later crashed by Bill Hall of Sheffield, UK and had the tub repaired and painted in McLaren orange. It was then sold in pieces to J. Venables and J. David, who shipped the car to the US for the first time and had it rebuilt by Jim Eccles in Lakeland, Florida. The car has subsequently been completely restored using new or rebuilt components with driver safety in mind, but maintaining a strong original configuration and livery. This amazing car still has its very special Chevy engine that was used by Sir Williamson to win the Championship in 1970! The car is very well-documented with numerous letters and photos from most of the previous owners, along with magazine articles and HSCC Identity Form and receipts for work. The original chassis plate and all period documentation are included and make this a rare and very valuable open wheel race car, eligible for any vintage open wheel event worldwide.

Condition:

A nearly perfect car in every respect. Car has had a ground-up restoration over the past two years, and has been recently maintained by Louis Shefchek of J&L Fabrications. All new suspension, brakes, fasteners, bearings, seals, everything crack checked and replaced as required. All original parts are included with car. Fresh 302 CID engine with 450HP +/- and downdraft Weber carbs. No detail was overlooked in the restoration of this car, but there are visible signs of original patina in places. New wheels, paint, wings, and a rebuilt Hewland gearbox make this car vintage race ready and a very desirable car for the experienced vintage car driver and historically-minded open wheel collector.
