Description

We are very pleased to offer this stunning 1973 Shadow DN1 chassis #4A for sale.The Shadow DN1 was built by Don Nichols Shadow team for the 1973 season. It was their first car in Formula 1 and six examples were built. After two early cars were written off, DN1-4A first appeared at the 1973 Monaco GP and was Jackie Olivers car for most of the season. Olivers best run in DN1-4A came at Monaco GP where he finished 10th overall and ran the whole race with a damaged nose following an incident on the opening lap. After a new development car was built, 4A became the team spare car but it was raced once more when guest driver Brian Redman drove it at Watkins Glen.After its retirement, DN1-4A was acquired by Shadow team leader Jean-Pierre Jarier for his personal collection before being sold in the mid-1980s to a French dealer. It passed to several more dealers hands before being stored by a collector for most of the 1990s until it was bought by the current owner in 2009 upon which a complete restoration was done by Louie Shefchik of J&L Fabricating (USA). Upon its completion, Shadow DN1-4A has been used successfully in both the Masters Historic F1 race series as well as in the 3 prior editions of the bi-yearly prestigious Monaco Historic GP.This genuine Shadow DN1 has always been maintained with no-expense-spared and has, in the last few years, been looked after by renown preparer Scott Sport (U.K.). The next custodian of DN1-4A will receive this stunning high airbox DN1 in totally fresh condition with a zero-miles Phil Reilly DFV, fresh crack test, new fuel cell and seat belts. It will need nothing further to spend except possibly doing a new, custom seat.  The car benefits from a current FIA HTP valid until 2025 and last but not least comes with an impressive spares list which includes body work, suspension items, gear-ratios and several sets of wheels. A complete spares list is available upon request.Being a 1973 high airbox non-ground effects car, this spectacular looking UOP Shadow DN1 is a perfect entry into Historic F1 and having run at Monaco in-period will be an already known and welcome entry at the Monaco Historic Grand Prix 2020. ...
