Make: Cooper
Name: Bristol T20 Mk1
Year: 1952
Description:

We are delighted to offer this rare 1952 ex-John Barber, ex-Sir Clive Edwards Cooper Bristol T20 Sports Car for sale on behalf of its long-term owner.

John Barber was racing an F3 Cooper-JAP 500 at the start of 1952 before buying T20 CB/7/52 in F2 spec and racing it for the first at the beginning of August at Boreham. He then brought it north to Scotland, to Turnberry in South Ayrshire, for the 1st Scottish National Trophy. The race attracted a fairly good entry among which Hawthorn, Moss, Villoressi, Gaze and a few others. Barber took part in the Libre race which allowed in the F1 cars, but retired, but finished 2nd in the F2 "Grand Prix", so called because F2 was the GP class for the world championship. These races were the closest thing Scotland has ever had to a Scottish GP. Barber then finished 8th at Goodwood before bringing the car back up to Scotland and racing it at Charterhall at the end of the season, where he crashed it pretty heavily.

Barber rebuilt the car over the winter as the Golding-Cooper with Disco Volante bodywork and road registration “NXH586” (which is still with the car today!), radiator slung under the nose, and left-hand drive. It was based on a concept that Cooper had been considering for a Mille Miglia effort, but which never happened. Barber finished 4th with the "flying saucer" at Snetterton in May '53. He then took the car to the Douglas circuit in the Isle of Man for the British Empire Trophy after which he did another race at Snetterton finishing 3rd, but the car failed to start it's last race as a "Disco Volante" at Silverstone.

At the end of 1953, the car then passed through the hands of "MacKenzie-Lowe" who sent the car back to the Cooper works who sent it to Peel Coachworks. They took off the loose hanging and flimsy Disco Volante bodywork and replaced it with the DB3S style body it wears today !

CB/7/52 was then sold to Sir Clive Edwards who used it extensively in hillclimbs and sprints from 1955 to 1960. Sir Edwards sold the car to Alistair McClelland, a garage owner who club raced and sprinted the car for a couple of seasons until he sold it in 1963 to former RAC/MSA CEO John Quenby, then still only 21. Quenby raced the car for a year and a half and then sold it to a unknown stockbroker from Dulwich when Quenby went to Australia to work for a while. The car then went to a succession of owners, some of which raced CB/7/52 in VSCC Historic races until it was bought again by John Quenby in 1997 who started a complete restoration of the car including its 2-litre 6 cylinder Bristol Type 100B engine. This took several years and – when completed - Quenby sold his favourit Cooper T20 Sports Car in 2006 to its current owner, a well known Dutch collector and historic racer who has campaigned CB/7/52 successfully on the historic racing scene including multiple appearances at the Goodwood Revival.

The car – still with its 1953 Road Registration NXH586 – is sold in race-ready condition, comes with an extensive history file and a 2016 FIA HTP (valid until 2026). As one of only nine Cooper Sports cars built and the only one with a gorgeous “DB3S-like” body, CB/7/52 is a welcome and competitive entry in all the prestigious 50ies sports car races such as Woodcote Trophy, Goodwood Revival, etc.. while it is also eligible for the Mille Miglia !

thumb_Ford_GT40_1027-ad1 (Kopie) (Kopie)
Make: FORD
Name: GT40 Mk1
Year: 1965
Description:
  • Born as 1965 production racing coupé
  • The February 1966 Brussels Motor Show car
  • MGM camera car used in the making of the film “Grand Prix” driven by 1961 World Champion Phil Hill
  • Proven race winning pre-66 (FIA Period F) GT40
  • Fully race prepared with current FIA HTP and extensive spares

We are delighted to offer this genuine and important 1965 Ford GT40 chassis #GT40 P/1027 for sale.

P/1027 was born as a 1965 production racing coupé and – upon completion in “Belgian Yellow” – was immediately shipped to Brussels for display at the 1966 Brussels Motor Show.

It was then shipped back to Ford and repainted in white with a blue center strip when it was sold to the MGM Film Studio for use as one of the two film cars for John Frankenheimer’s film “Grand Prix” (the other film car was a Shelby Cobra), one of the best motor racing films ever made.

Just how did John Frankenheimer achieve those stunning car-to-car shots, brought to the cinema in very 1960s split-screen editing? Many of them were filmed from an adapted version of P/1027, a potent racing car converted to high-speed camera car and driven during the 1966 Grand Prix season by drivers such as 1961 World Champion Phil Hill and kiwi racer Jack Brabham. Beneath a predictably preposterous plot, the action is fairly realistic and considerably enhanced by the high-speed stunts where stars such as James Garner (a very handy driver) followed the modified GT40, just inches away from the camera lens. The professional drivers behind the wheel of the 200mph GT40 needed real guts to maintain a realistic pace at a circuit such as Monaco, Spa, River Side, Watkins Glen, Sebring, etc.. The car’s 500+ page history file contains many beautiful pictures of P/1027 in filming action.

Filming continued well into 1967 and, after its vital backstage role on the silver screen, P/1027 was sold by MGM to Charles Sechan in Prospect, Pennsylvania, who resprayed it maroon with gold sill lines and used it as a road car. In February 1968 it was sold to Jim Toensing, the of Minneapolois. Jim vintage raced it and following a shunt at Elkhart Lake, next owner James Ladwig commissioned a complete restoration. The restoration was to the exact original specifications using original components and parts. The end result was one of the finest and most correct GT-40's in the world. It was judged "best race car" at the meadow brook concours in 1993 after which the P/1027 was displayed at the Briggs Cunningham Automotive Museum in Costa Mesa, California, where it remained until the museum’s closure in the mid 1990s. Ownership then passed to well known Hong Kong based collector Chip Connor who titled the car in Nevada where it joined his collection until 2002.

Arch enthusiast and doyen of the collecting world, Sir Anthony Bamford, then bought it, via Barret Jackson in August 2002, for $405,000. Entrusting its race preparation to Gelscoe Motorsport who produced the 2005 Whitsun Trophy-winning machine driven by Sam Hancock setting a then blistering 1:23.7 lap record.

In 2006 it was sold to Lord Irvine Laidlaw who campaigned it – now in his familiar maroon/silver colour scheme, and run by the experienced Simon Hadfield – at the 2008 Le Mans Classic and at Dijon in 2009. It was then sold to long time historic racer and collector Carlos Monteverde who returned it to its original livery and ran it just once, at the 2010 Le Mans Classic after which we sold it to its current owner who has successfully campaigned the car on the historic racing scene participating in many of the prestigious events such as the Goodwood Revival and Members Meeting, Le Mans Classic, Patrick Peter’s CER races, etc..

Chassis P/1027 is sold in totally race-ready condition equipped with new fuel bladders fitted by Premier Fuel systems (certificates available) and with current Period F FIA HTP papers valid until 2025. The car comes with an extensive spares package and an impressive 500+ page history dossier compiled by GT40 historian Ronnie Spain.

This genuine, race-born Ford GT40 car represents the perfect opportunity for those looking for a potent historic racing car with fascinating history which is a welcome entry into the world's most prestigious evenets while it will also fit prominently in any serious car collection.

To many, the Mk1 - being the first iteration of the famous Lola T70 line - is still the purest in design. With only 15 T70 Mk1's made and all of them being accounted for, these cars are sought after and front running in the pre-66 historic racing scene.

As the car has not run for a few years now, it will need going through, crack testing and installation of a new fuel cell , fire extinguisher and belts upon which it is ready to roar again !

The engine is a strong 5.7 litre Tim Adams SMB Chevy with only about 10 hours running and the Hewland LG-500 gearbox is in excellent condition. SL70/6 also benefits from an accusump anti-oil surge system and comes with a set of spare wheels and a current 2016 FIA HTP.
