Description

Chassis: BFC 002

Built for Ford Motor Company ltd, by specialists Broadspeed ahead of the 1973 season, BFC 002 was Initially powered by a three-litre Weslake engine, where it was driven to victory in the Belgian Touring Car Championship by Claude Borgoignie ( with the Ford BP Racing Team). Later in 1973, it was also used in the RAC Tourist Trophy at Silverstone by Andy Rouse.

For the 1974 season, it was used by Bo Emanuelson, who used it to win the Swedish Touring Car Championship under the STP Ford Team banner. At the end of 1974 season, it was shipped to Ford Cologne where it was rebuilt with the latest 3.4-litre specification engine and works Cologne RS3100 modifications, as it remains today.
