Name: 911 Carrera 3.0 RS(G)
Year: 1974
Description:

We have the pleasure to offer this exceptional Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RS(G) for sale on behalf of its current owner. 

As evidenced by its impressive 10+ year race history under the Max Moritz banner, this particular car is also known as "The Max Moritz RS".

Introduced in 1974, the Carrera 3.0 RS is probably the ultimate dual purpose road/racing car. Amongst the rarest of all the 911 derivatives, it was built to replace the ultra-successful 2.7 RS and 2.8 RSR from the previous year of which 1580 cars had been built. Because the new 3.0 RS was judged to be an evolution of the 2.7 RS, the FIA regulated that only a minimum of 100 examples of the new car needed to be built for homologation in either the Group 3 or Group 4 racing classes. A total of 109 Carrera RS 3.0 models were built for 1974 and of those, 52 were RS models to Group 3 spec with the remaining 55 examples built to RSR Group 4 spec. The chassis was largely similar to that of the 1973 2.8 RSR with the brake system from the 917 and was effectively an evolution of the Penske built RS 3.0 cars built for the ’74 IROC series. The use of thinner metal panels and a spartan interior enabled the weight of the new 3.0 RS to be reduced to somewhere around 900 kg.

This particular car, chassis “9018” was the first of the 52 cars completed to Group 3 spec by Porsche in mid-December ’73 and delivered new in January ’74 to its first customer, Claus Utz of Leitzenger, Germany. Entered under the “Sixtant Racing Team” banner and prepared by legendary car builder Max Moritz, Utz and fellow German amateur racers Hortz Gödel and Jean-Claude Berlin raced the RSG in German DRM and DARM national championship events with Gödel winning at Mainz-Finthen. This was the first of at least 29 outright wins that “9018” would achieve over the next six years. As well as the German national championship races, “9018” also took part in the Nurburgring 1000 Kms four times and the 1975 Le Mans 24 Hours. That same year Utz won at Sembach and at Mainz-Finthen, but the following year was much more successful with Utz winning 11 races outright.

At the end of 1976 the RS was sold to Jurgen Lassig who raced the car over the two years with Boss sponsorship winning six races in 1977 and nine races in 1978. With the purchase of a new 934/5 for Lassig to race in 1979, the RS lay unused and in storage at Max Moritz Racing until being sold in 1980 through Autofarm-Porsche to Don Coaster of Burton-on-Trend in England. Retained until 1989, Don sold the car to Charlie Agg who was looking for a civilised fast road car as his daily user, a job the car performed admirably until Charlie sold the car in 2001 to Nicolaus Springer who then sold #9018 to well known classic car collectors Lukas Huni and Conrad Ulrich. They owned “9018” for the next 12 years until it was sold to the current owner in 2013. During 2014 and 2015, a full no-expense spared restoration was done by Swiss Porsche expert Marc de Siebenthal and the car was also repainted in its original white livery with gold “Carrera” side lettering. The restoration was completed in October 2015 and fresh FIA HTP papers were issued for #9018. Since its restoration, the car has been used sparingly in selected historic events such as the 2017 Cento ore Modena rally.

The condition of the car is near concours and as it left the factory in 1974. Despite its impressive racing career, the car retains its original engine (type 911/77 with engine number 6840037) and 915 gearbox making it a matching numbers car ! All engine and mechanical components are correct 3.0 RS specification. The original "BOSS" Max Moritz front trunk lid and bumper come with the car as well as the original Fahrzeugbrief, Porsche Certificate and an extensive ownership race history file in both German and English.

This is arguably one of the very best of the rare 911 3.0 RS cars existing. Its amazing race pedigree including a Le Mans 24hr finish make it a very collectible but also very usable car which is eligible for any historic event around the world. A car for the serious Porsche collector who only wants the best !

Make: Chevron
Name: B8
Year: 1968
Description:

Chevron cars had burst onto the GT racing scene in 1966 with a dream debut for its B3, the very first GT car produced by the talented Derek Bennett, winning at Oulton Park in its maiden race. To racing driver John Lepp, observer at the Chevron's first track test at the same venue, this came as no surprise having already seen the GT put in a lap no less than six seconds under the GT record.

Its closely resembling successor, the Chevron B8 - more often than not powered by BMW's two liter, overhead camshaft, four cylinder engine - went onto dominate national GT racing and enjoy much success in Europe from 1968 onwards. The B8 used a space frame chassis with all independent wishbone/coil spring suspension, while its svelte and curvaceous fiberglass bodywork made it one of the prettiest GT/sports racers of its era. With its mid-mounted engine mated to a Hewland transaxle, it was duly homologated for the international Group 4 class, and it too proved highly successful: the car made its race debut at Cadwell Park on March 3rd 1968 and just over three weeks later, an example, driven by John Silverstone, took an outright win in the GT race at Silverstone; John Lepp then went on to take overall honours in the 1969 RAC Sports Car Championship. By the time production ceased in 1970, Chevron had only built 44 B8 models of which 34 with the BMW 2.0 litre engine. Whichever power unit was fitted, the B8 remained a superbly effective racing car and highly competitive in international racing, thanks to its combination of superb agility and outright speed. The situation is no different today in historic racing where the Chevron B8 and Bolton's best is a regular podium finisher in sports and GT car events.


We are proud to offer for sale the ex-Peter Crossley Chevron B8. CH-DBE-54 was built by Chevron and supplied to well known British club racer Crossley in March 1968. This was the start of an extensive and successful racing career for CH-DBE-54 which has a well documented, continuous ownership history (see below) and has always been maintained at no-expense-spared by its prior and current owner during the last 15 years. Interestingly, CH-DBE-54 was the car in which renown historic race preparer Simon Hadfield had his first 3 races in 1984 when the car was owned by John Upton. Not surprisingly, Simon won all 3 races !

CH-DBE-54 is in excellent condition throughout and is sold in race-ready condition. The car's 2.0 litre BMW engine was rebuild by specialist Lester Owen and has approximately 4 hours running. Rebuild suspension and brakes. It comes with a good spares package (multiple wheels sets, spare bodywork, etc.) and benefits from a new, 2017 issued FIA HTP. 

Interestingly, CH-DBE-54 comes with Belgian road registration documents which make it a great entry for historic road events and rallies around the world ! 

This pedigree Chevron B8 is truly one of the best examples and is eligible for all historic race events such as LeMans Classic (where CH-DB-54 has participated multiple times), Masters WSM, CER, etc. where it will continue to be a competitive and very welcomed entry.

Name: T70 Mk3B Continuation
Year: 1969
Description:

We are pleased to offer this stunning Lola T70 Mk3B 2nd series factory continuation car with chassis HU76/160 for sale.

Lola Cars Ltd manufactured six 2nd series continuation cars (the 1st series were build in the early 80ies) between 2006 and 2010. HU76/160 was the 2nd one build and the 1st customer car (as Lola kept HU76/159 with them for promotion).

It was delivered in its Scuderia Filipinetti livery to its first owner, father and son Esmond and Andrew Smith, at Le Mans Classic in 2006. Maintained by Gary Pearson with no expense spared, Andrew raced the car in the World Sportscar Masters from 2006 to 2009 with many outright wins and podium finishes. The car also participated in the 2008 Le Mans parade for Lola 50th Anniversary in 2008.  After having been unused for a few years, it was then fully rebuild by Pearson prior to our brokering the sale of HU76/159 to its current owner in January of 2016 who has used the car sparingly with only about 3 hours running!

As such it is no surprise that HU76/159 is in perfect condition with a Steve Warrior 5.0 litre Chevy small block engine on carburettors, LG-600 gearbox, new fuel cells, rebuilt and crack tested suspension and rebuild brakes. Everything on the car is current and it needs nothing spend further. In addition to a 2016 FIA HTP, spares included are 3 sets of wheels, front body section and some gear-ratio’s.

Being one of a select group of only six official Lola T70 Mk3B 2nd series continuation cars, HU76/160 is now ready to make its re-appearance on the historic racing scene where it remains a welcomed and very competitive entry.

Make: Shelby
Name: Cobra
Year: 1963
Description:

Shelby Cobra CSX2112 was billed to Shelby American on January 1963 after which the car had 3 US owners where it led a normal life until bought by Jim Gould in 1976. After having owned the car for 20+ years, Jim modified the Cobra in 2000 to compete in Vintage races. After several years as a successful vintage racer and 33 years of ownership, Gould sold CSX2112  – through Curt Vogt of Cobra Automotive - in 2007 to Dutch historic racer Peter Van Hoepen. Peter sent CSX2112 to renowned Cobra preparer Classic Racing Cars Ltd where it has been looked after until today. In 2012 we assisted Van Hoepen with the sale of the car to its current owner who has raced it very successfully on the European historic racing scene with many wins and podium finishes.

CSX2112 has undergone a full rebuild following a crash at the 2016 Goodwood members meeting.  The chassis and body repair was done by renowned Cobra specialist G&A Fabrications (an extensive repair description and picture file comes with the car) after which the car was completely overhauled by Classic Racing Cars Ltd, a leading preparer of racing Cobra's. The gearbox, suspension and brakes have been rebuild, a new fuel cell and fire system was installed and the engine was rebuilt to latest FIA specification by V8 engine specialist Steve Warrior.

Still benefitting from a current (2013) FIA HTP, CSX2112 is now looking more resplendent than ever and remains one of the most competitive FIA racing Cobras as evidenced by its pole position in the Gentlemen Driver's race during the Masters Historic Festival at Brands Hatch.

This stunning Cobra is ready to shine again in the hands of a new, lucky owner for racing and/or rallying (street registration is possible as the old US title comes with the car). As a genuine, race-prepared Shelby Cobra, CSX2112 is eligible for all historic events around the world, where it remains a very competitive and welcomed entry.

Chevron B19 (1970)

Price Reduced

Make: Chevron
Name: B19
Year: 1970
Description:

We are very pleased to offer this very special 1970 Chevron B19 chassis "70-S-10" for sale. 

70-S-10 is the prototype B19 built in the late summer of 1970 using the repaired and modified chassis from B16-DBE-10 which had been entered by the factory for the 1970 Nurburgring 500 Kms but was crashed in practice by Dieter Quester in its one and only race appearance.

This race also saw the debut of the Brian Redman inspired B16S-01 spider. When asked for suggestions as to how to make the B16 coupe quicker and more competitive against the new spider Lola T210, Brian replied, “make it look like a Porsche 908/03” and hence the spider-bodied B16S was born. The new body design proved an instant success, so a proper B19 prototype, using the chassis from B16-DBE-10, was built by Derek Bennett in the cornered-off section of the Bolton factory which served as his “secret special projects” workshop, hence the “S” designation of this car. This was also where the B16S, the later 3-ltre B27S and the B41 Formula 1 car were built and developed.

This B19 is exceptionally well documented with continuous ownership from new. It has good early in-period race history (see below) and is offered for sale in fully restored, race-ready condition with a low hours Geoff Richardson FVC engine, rebuild FT200 box, new fuel cell, current (2013 issued) FIA HTP and a decent spares package.

This special "B19 prototype" is an important part of Chevron's history and is very usable in multiple race series (Masters, CER, ADAC FHR, etc.) where it is a welcome and competitve entry ready to give its new owner a lot of enjoyment.

Make: Porsche
Name: 911 2.5 S/T
Year: 1972
Description:

We are delighted to offer this genuine and rare 1972 Porsche 911 2.5 litre S/T for sale on behalf of its current, long-time owner.

Porsche dominance of the GT classes by 1972 was in full swing. You just didn’t go GT racing unless you had a 911. Demand was huge with Porsche building 24 special lightweight “S/T” models with fuelinjected 2.5 litre engines pushing out an astonishing 270 bhp. With wider rubber hidden under flared alloy wheel-arches, it looked meaner for gone was the slab-sided look. The 911 now had a much meatier look to it and even standing still it looked a lot faster than it did before. In 1972, the 911S/T dominated the new Group 4 European GT Championship to the extent that other manufacturers didn’t see the point in getting involved anymore. Porsches dominance did see the demise of the series in 1976, but it was hardly their fault, they delivered what was asked for, a race winning GT car you could compete with anywhere in any discipline you cared for.

This gulf blue factory S/T (delivered w/ M491 option) is one of only 24 built with continuous history from new. Known as the ex-Bartels/Tebernum car with excellent in-period int'l race and hillclimb history which includes a 1973 Daytona 24hr 9th OA finish !

#0987 was restored in the early 90ies by renown specialist Mario Linke of Methusalem to stunning, concours condition and has been used sparingly up to the present day.

Original monococque chassis with all numbers present and original. Correct 911/73 type engine and matching gearbox.

This car is one of the best 911 2.5 S/T's existing, has continuous and undisputed history from new and is exceptionally well documented (original Wagenpass, Fahrzeugbrief, Porsche letters, etc.).

One of the rarest and "blue-chip" Porsche 911's of all time which will give its new owner plenty of enjoyment on the road, rally and/or race track !

Sauber C3 (1973)
EUR 135000
Make: Sauber
Name: C3
Year: 1973
Description:

We have the pleasure to offer this rare and special Sauber C3 chassis 003 for sale.

Built by Peter Sauber and designed by Guy Boisson at Hinwil in Switzerland, the Sauber C3 was the first “full Sauber” car (except the Cosworth 1600 BDA engine) and also the last of the tube-framed Saubers.

Of the three C3 built, chassis 003, was the last one and was specifically built for Peter Sauber’s own use. With Gulf sponsorship, Peter drove the “Gulf Sauber” twice in 1973 and once in 1974 – at the St Peterzell-Hemberg hill climb- where he had his last victory before retiring from competition driving.

At the end of 1974, the car was upgraded by Sauber to C3B specification after which it was raced extensively in 1975 – still as Gulf Sauber – by Klaus Roger List in the Swiss championship. In 1979, the car was sold to Dieter Schulz who re-engined the car with a Cosworth BDG 1996cc unit and repainted it black. Chassis 003 then continued to race in the Interserie until 1986 when it made its way to Canada until 1992 when Dutch historic racer Nico Snoeck brought the car back to Europe. Nico equipped the car with a Cosworth BDG engine mated to a Hewland FGA gearbox and raced the car until 2000 when he sold it to the current, long-term owner. The car was then put on display at the Stavelot museum until entrusted to Gelscoe Motorsport for a complete restoration. Gelscoe rebuilt the car over the space of a year and completed it by mid 2015 when C3-003 made its re-appearance on the race track at Brands Hatch pre-80 historic race event where a defective fuel pump took away a podium finish.

After having owned the car for more than 15 years, the current owner realized that C3-003 is now too fast for him and  so he decided to sell “the family C3”. As the installed cast block BDG engine was cracked the car is offered for sale without engine but –given its recent Gelscoe restoration - is otherwise in race-ready condition. The new owner then has the option to fit either a Cosworth BDG-engine of his choice. The car has a new, 2016 issued FIA HTP and comes with usable spares as well as its old, spare bodywork.

This Sauber C3-003 is attractively priced for its new owner and would be a special, rare and welcome entry to various historic racing series for which it is eligible (CER, Pre-80 Endurance, FHR, etc.) and competitive with its light-weight tubular chassis and rear wing.

Make: Arrows
Name: A3
Year: 1980
Description:

We have the pleasure to offer for sale the ex-Riccardo Patrese 1980 Arrows A3 chassis #3.

The Arrows Grand Prix International team, based in Milton Keynes (UK), was founded in 1977 by Italian financier Franco Ambrosio, Jackie Oliver, Dave Wass and Tony Southgate (from whose surnames' initials the team took its name) when Rees, Oliver, Wass and Southgate left the Shadow team together with young and up-coming Italian driver Riccardo Patrese .

In chassis #3 Riccardo did the entire 1980 and 1981 F1 seasons and achieved the best ever race results for the Arrows team including (amongst others) 2nd overall at the 1980 US West GP, fastest lap at the Monaco GP and pole position at the 1981 Long Beach Grand Prix. During the 1980 season, A3/3 ran in its well known and fabulous looking gold Warsteiner livery (with Penthouse and Rizla as additional sponsors) while – for the 1981 season – a sponsorship deal was struck with Italian Ceramiche Ragno and Utili Beta of Milan.

When Arrows moved on to the A4 design for the 1982 season, they sold three of the A3s to wheeler-dealer John harper and retained Patrese's car #3 for display at the factory. When Arrows was sold, the A3 passed into the ownership of Jackie Oliver and was driven up the hill by Oliver at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 1994. It then passed to Tony O'Neill who sold it to Paul Southgate but the Arrows was never raced during their successive ownership and remained completely original. After Southgate died in June 2008 the car was sold via Duncan Hamilton & Co to Philip Hall in November 2009 who sold it to the current owner in 2012.

Since 2013, A3/3 is being raced by its current owner with race preparation by WDK Motorsport. The car has been fully rebuild and no expense has been spared to put this iconic "Warsteiner" Arrows in excellent condition throughout. It has a low-mileage latest specification short stroke DFV and comes with an extensive spares package and a new, current FIA HTP.

This ex-Patrese Arrows A3/3 is 100% ready to shine in the FIA World Championship Grand Prix Masters while it is now also eligible for the Monaco Historic GP 2018 where it would be a very competitive car !

Argo JM19D (1988)
EUR 195000

Price Reduced

Make: Argo
Name: JM19D
Year: 1988
Description:

We have the pleasure to offer this late specification Argo JM19D Group C(2) car for sale.

Argo Racing Cars Ltd was a British racing car constructor founded in the 1980s by Swiss designer Jo Marquart and British mechanic Nick Jordan as part of their Anglia Cars racing team. The company initially constructed a variety of single-seater cars for Formula 3, Formula Atlantic and Formula Super Vee but later on built sports prototypes for the World Sportscar Championship C2 class and the North American IMSA GT Lights category winning several championships in the process.

The JM19 was the second sports prototype design from the company and followed the successful JM16 with this particular car, chassis 129, the eighteenth of nineteen JM19s and was built to “D” spec, the second of only three cars built as such. It was sold by Jo Marquart of Argo Cars Ltd Suisse to Helmut Bross of Herrenberg, Germany in the early summer of 1989. Helmuth Bross was a former car salesman and clerk who excelled in Formula Vee early in his career, but he also had a long career in many disciplines including Interserie and most of the time he acted as his own mechanic and team boss. JM19D/129 was one of four cars in the Bross Racing stable and as well as being raced by Bross himself over the following nine seasons, many rent-a-drivers took their turn.

A solid and reliable enough performer, the car often finished in the top 10. By far the most successful behind the wheel was British driver David Coyne who finished 2nd in the Brands Hatch Interserie race in 1990, and later on in 1993, David won a British National event at Castle Combe recording JM19D/129C’s only ever win. Main sponsors through the year were Valvoline Oil, the Druck Chemie pharmaceutical company, Angles Jeans and Hotsound Records, the Rotterdam based dance label founded in 1981 by Erik van Vliet who raced JM19D/129C for a few races in 1992 managing a respectful 7th place finish at the Zolder Interserie.

In late '97 the car was converted to WSC spider spec and fitted with a Ford Cosworth DFR engine wassold to Swiss driver Josef "Sepp" Sacher who campaigned the Argo under the Sacher Motorsport banner in the Swiss championship in 1997 and '98 with the car being looked after by Heinz Hunziker. In 1999, in what was his farewell year, former owner Helmuth Bross borrowed the car for one race, at Hockenheim where he finished 6th.

In 2009 the car was bought by the owner of ATEC Fluid Systems of Germany who created Argo Racing based in Stavelot, Belgium and prepared and entered two Lamborghinis in the German and FIA championships in 2009 and 2010. Fully rebuilt and re-painted yellow, JM19D/129C was scheduled and ready to take part in the Historic Group C championship until the ATEC/ARGO team owner unexpectedly passed away.

JM19D/129 was then garaged for the next three years in the Stavelot Museum at Spa-Francorchamps until bought by the current owner from the ATEC Estate in November 2012. A couple of days later the Argo was displayed at the Motor Sport World Expo held in Cologne, Germany. After a full ground up restoration and rebuild over the winter, JM19D/129C was taken along to the Spa Spring Test Day in April 2013 for a full shakedown and track test. The car has been very sparingly used since and is regularly maintained and started.

The engine is a 3.5 liter Cosworth DFR with electronic management which has been serviced by Geoff Richardson in August 2015 and has hardly been used since. The car is in excellent condition throughout and only needs crack testing, a new fuel cell and belts to go racing again; the estimated cost of which is less than Euro 10k.

JM19/129C, located in Belgium, is well documented and comes with an extensive spares package including multiple wheel sets, pre-heating system, body work, gear-ratio's, uprights, radiator, drive shafts, etc.

If you are looking for a reliable and cost effective entry into Group C racing, this Argo JM19D 129C would be an excellent buy !
