Seller's Notes

This particular car was purchased new from English dealer Chamberlain in 1959, and was one of the first to arrive in the US. It was raceed in the Northwest Region SCCA, and had immediate success on the track. During the the first four years racing it achieved 10 podium finishes in 20 races with this very car. The car changed ownership 6 times altogether to present and still carries the #85 used in 1960. In 2002, and 2003, the car was invited to participate in the Monterey Historic races at Laguna Seca, CA. It has been well maintained and still has its numbers matching original stage 3 prpared motor with twin Weber carburetors. The overall condition is excellent with no checking or cracking. There is no evidence of crash damage and only small touched up stone nicks are found on the bodywork. The car is completely street legal and could be used for vintage rallies or track competition. Spares with the car include original drivers seat, wood steering wheel, side windows, owners handbook, and shop manual.
