Emeryson 250

  • Former 250 Formula Champion car
  • The car then ran as a vintage race car for years in the US and was repowered with a BSA engine rather than the original Velocette engine.
  • The car runs but needs fettling to race as it has been off the track for a few years.
  • I have the original nose cone piece with the integral fuel tank, the original hood with scoop, and a spare tail piece
  • Buyer may wish to restore it back to original with a Velocette engine.
  • Located in the US, fairly close to the East Coast (250 miles) and could assist in bringing it to port (Savannah or Jacksonville)
  • Offers around $19,000 US dollars.

Lynx 104

  • Lynx rear engine drum brake Junior ch. no. 104. 1961
  • An opportunity to purchase a Junior project.
  • The car was restored in Australia in 1999 used frequently then dismantled and shipped to the UK.
  • It has since been loosely assembled and all  parts appear to be present.
  • Lynx engineering in Australia began manufacturing Formula Junior racing cars back in 1961 having acquired the patterns and jigs for the early Ralt cars from Ron Tauranac when moved to England to work with Jack Brabham. Lynx built approximately 20 cars during 1961 and 1962.
  • Chassis FJ104 was completed 27/4/1961 as a rolling chassis and purchased by the service manager for Repco.
  • He installed a BMC A series engine and VW transmission. The engine was originally 998cc but subsequently bored to 1074cc. The history of the car is basically complete with period photographics, letters from previous owners, historic classified adverts for the sale of the car, CAMS documents, history of Lynx cars and race programs etc.
  • The original VW gearbox appears to be in excellent condition. The engine will need a complete rebuild depending on the specification you desire but it comes with the correct BMC/VW adapter plate, rare Lynx rocker cover and Lynx inlet manifold together with Weber carb.
  • This is a rare Formula Junior and as such would be an ideal candidate for entry into the prestige events.
  • Asking price; £24,995
  • Please contact Jon Waggitt for further details on 07710022112 email sportsandspecialist@yahoo.co.uk

1973 Chevron B25 F2

  • Complete restoration has been carried out over the last 2/3 years and it’s ready to use immediately.
  • Work undertaken is as follows:
    • Tub reskinned, restored, painted and new fuel tanks installed.
    • All suspension components are new including uprights, bearings, wishbones, rose joints, dampers etc.
    • New body work.
    • All new instruments, battery, fire extinguisher and seat belts.
    • New Chevron pattern wing and wing frame.
    • All new nuts bolts, hardware.
    • New Berazzi knock on Chevron wheels (slicks) and original magnesium wheels (wets).  Torque wrench included to remove and install wheels.
    • Richardson Alloy Block BDG 8mm fuel injection.  Has only covered 150 miles since rebuild by them.
    • FT200 rebuilt by Tony Wilson and has had very little use and substantial number of spare ratios included.
    • 2 Spare radiators, spare body top, spare seat.
    • Chassis dynamics analysis undertaken by GSD Racedyn (Nigel Rees).
    • The car is extremely light and significantly under the weight limit.
  • The history of this car is not definitive however evidence suggests that it is B25/73/07 – the Peter Gethin factory car.  Original bodywork which accompanied the car revealed the works livery and there is correspondence which comes with the car referring to it as #07.  This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a front running Formula 2 Chevron which requires no expense and can be used straight away.  I have raced it once at Spa Peter Auto F2 in 2017 and HSCC F2 Silverstone 2018 – 4th place finish from back of grid.
  • The car is extremely easy to drive and in the right hands has the potential to win in Historic F2.  Its permitted under the regulations to run at 450Kg instead of 500Kg which the post 73 cars have to, resulting in a significant weight advantage of 50kg with no real power deficit to the BMW/Hart powered cars and the added reliability and spares availability of Ford BDG.
  • Eligible for HSCC Historic F2, Derek Bell Trophy and the standalone Historic F2 race at Silverstone Classic in 2019.
  • £95.000.00
