This rare and interesting Chevron B60 barchetta is equipped with a type 13B 1300cc Mazda Wankel rotary engine paired to a 1978 type FG411 five-speed Hewland gearbox. This sport prototype was built in the early 80s on a monocoque chassis with a fiberglass body to compete in the Thundersport championship. This B60, owned by the same person since 2011, was acquired from the family of the previous owner at his death, having himself acquired it in 1998, directly from the famous Belgian collector Jean Blaton, better known under his driving name "Beurlys". The car has since been used a few times during track days but overall has been used very little in recent years. Its owner notably proceeded with the renovation of the gearbox, as well as the repair of the polyester bodywork, the invoices of which are in the file just like an old FIA certificate. The owner and his mechanic in charge of the current maintenance will be happy to pass their knowledge of the car to the future buyer. It will also be sold with mechanical parts and tools, details regarding these can be acquired upon request. This car represents an interesting opportunity to acquire a powerful racing machine with prestigious provenance, capable of offering you the best sensations on trackdays.
