Bought as a ‘learning’ car for RHD driving in our racing cars, totally rotten, but original (blue interior) and fast Sprint from England.
originally licenced 01 03 1974, so one of the early ones
I just remember, Jan Oldenkamp and I got it out of Jamies garden, 200 GBP car, ‘runner’.
You could look right through the car from one passenger door to the other, and still see the garden….
It just needed a bottle of ‘fast-start-gas’ to make it snore again, and it helped me a lot to learn how to use all instruments if driving the car from ‘the other side’. Had a head-gasket blow out back in 1999, and has been on the field since, partly dismantled, will not run again.
By now the engine has been partly used to make a spare one, drive train is on the test chassis we made for testing the race engines on our Dyno before using them. It’s still in the yard, but looks slightly older than on the picture.
Meanwhile somebody is very happy with the blue 1973 style interior.
