Description

- Specially commissioned by first owner F.B.P. Bambridge of Guildford, Surrey who covered some 20,000 miles aboard it later commenting: 'Stability and controllability were far better than anything I had previously experienced and the ride was most comfortable'

- Bespoke Tojeiro-supplied spaceframe rolling chassis, unique Wakefield & Sons-crafted aluminium coachwork and major assembly work / road testing carried out by Competition Motors of Weybridge

- Pleasingly retains its original Coventry-Climax FWA 1100cc engine

- Raced in the late 1960s by then keeper John Henderson

- Current ownership since 2009 and subject to a 'ground up' restoration by Beacon Hill Garage
