1962 Lynx Mk 3

  • 1962 Lynx FJ with Ford engine and four speed Hewland gearbox, disc brakes front and drums rear. Only 7 Mk 3 Lynx FJ’s were made in period and this is only one with this unique specification.
  • Ron Tauranac (designer of early Brabhams and dominant Ralts) designed the Lynx FJ and hence it is a very well thought-out and competitive FJ. Sister cars have taken overall honours at the Goodwood Revival and have been Lurani Class Champions.
  • The specification enables it to run in the E2 Class. Given it is a very competitive car (e.g. class winner and class lap record holder at Oulton Park), it has the potential to win the Lurani and Silverline Championships outright, as well as being a shoo-in for Class honours.
  • Being the last of only seven built it is quite a rare car and hence attracts interest for prestigious events such as the Goodwood Revival and the like.
  • Well known and ultra-reliable car which competed in most rounds of the last World Tour. Everything is in date including a current HTP [exp: 31/12/2027]. It is ready to race, with tyres that have only done three meetings.
  •  It comes with a newly fitted and painted light weight body so will likely to need ballast to bring it up to weight, enabling this to be positioned to maximise handling. The car is extremely well sorted and drives and handles well.
  • The following comes with the car:
  • A spare set of wheels in new condition, spare nose and undertray (painted and in excellent condition), complete new set of suspension arms and wishbones (carried as spares in case of an accident), assortment of gear ratios, spare master cylinders, brake linings, assortment of the usual spares, etc.
  • The car resides in the UK all taxes paid
  •  It is for sale at GBP55,000.00 for the package.
  • There is also a crated spare engine unused since a rebuild for a further GBP10,000.00

Cooper-Lancia T52

COOPER T52-LANCIA Formula Junior FJ/16/60

Period specification and history.

  • A unique car, this Cooper T52 rolling chassis 16/60 was delivered from the Cooper Car Company to Elaborazione Facetti in Bresso near Milan, for wealthy young driver Enrico Agostini. Agostini was an experienced racer, having won the Italian Hillclimb Championship (1100cc class) in his Lancia Appia Zagato in 1959.
  • The car was delivered engineless but otherwise complete with a Cooper/ERSA gearbox, into which legendary engineer and racer Carlo Facetti installed a Formula Junior specification Lancia Appia V4 engine.
  • Agostini is known to have raced the car at Cesenatico in April 1961, XI Circuit del Garda April 1961 (finished 8th), Monaco FJ race in May 1961 (entered as the “Cooper-Lancia-Facetti”), and Monza in June 1961.
  • Little is known of the car’s history after 1961 but it re-surfaced in the 1980s in the hands of Rodney Tolhurst running a standard Appia engine and Renault gearbox. It ran in the US and UK for a number of years with a BMC engine and Hewland gearbox, until no longer eligible for FJ races in that form.
  • The car is now back in its original specification for the first time since the early 1960s, after a 5-year restoration which included sourcing the correct 8-port Lancia Appia 1950s engine and Cooper-ERSA gearbox. The restoration was carried out with the direct assistance and period verification of Carlo Facetti. The chassis and running gear were restored by FJ specialists MRM Racing and the engine rebuilt to full-race specifications by Setford & Company.
  • It has a current FIA HTP valid until 31/12/2031
  • Other than general testing, it is fresh from restoration.
  • The car has been a Goodwood Revival invitee on 2 occasions. Lurani class C2 and the new C3 class for rear-engined Lancia and Fiat powered cars make it a potential overall winner of the UK Formula Junior Championship.
  • Sold at Revival 2023 for £73K, now offered at £65,000.
