Registration Number: SCL900 Chassis Number: 850162
SCL900 was first registered on the 5th October 1961 and was fastidiously rebuilt to lightweight specification by marque specialists between 1989 and 1995. Its early history is not as well documented as in later years; however, the car still retains its original number plate and is provided with numerous scrutineer tags from race meetings during the early 1980s.
In 1985 the vehicle was purchased by Dr David Flanagan, who embarked upon a ground up restoration on the car in order to use for sprints, rallies, race meetings and road use. Consequently, the engine was fitted with Webber carburettors, taking power output to over 300 bhp. In addition, aluminium bonnet, doors and boot lid were purchased and fitted by renowned panel specialists R.S. Panels for £6,300 in 1990.
