It has been to Le Sept a number times and more recently to Cadwell Park shortly before  the  60th anniversary. Dunlop alloys are shod in yoko 21s.

The car is fitted with a Twin Cam, built and serviced by Bruno Schaffner in Switzerland, Bruno is known in Formula Junior, Historic Lotus and Ginetta racing.

The gearbox is 3 rail Ford 4 speed from period. The back axle is Ford Escort but with LSD and light metal nose differential.  The suspension is more or less period but with adjustable shock absorbers.

The cockpit is little changed, bench seats but speedo and rev counter updated.  Red steering wheel.

There are a few spares, full set of wings, gearbox bits.

The car was imported to Switzerland in 1998 where it still lives.

Yes, it is but with creaking joints we cannot do it justice. Seems a pity not to use it as it should be.
