Sebring Courier - chassis #1201
Sebring Courier with chassis #1201 has been a race car since new and she undoubtedly has the most significant and successful racing history of any Courier. I have a complete lineage of all previous owners and it is recognized and accepted by the US Elva Registry. A full compliment of useable spares accompanies this car including most of the original pieces in order to convert it back to vintage (historic) race specifications.
The car has been comprehensively restored over the past 18 months with only 1 test day on it. It has a brand new 190 bhp dry sump motor, it is "spot-on" and it is ready to go racing as it sits. All of the components are "best of the best," with no expenses spared and the car is near Concours condition. A brief bit of the history is as follows:
- Built July 1964 as one of two Trojan "team" cars (one of 62 T-Type Couriers built) and campaigned in the U.K. in 1964 and 1965.
- Converted to Left Hand Drive in late 1965 and exported to U.S. importer Carl Haas in December 1965.
- Raced in the 1966 Sebring 12 Hours by Fred Opert and William McKenzie, finishing 25th overall ahead of a "who's who" of drivers from the 60's.
- Long and successful SCCA club racing history culminated by winning the 2002 SCCA E Production National Championship
- 100% race ready with all new mechanicals (1 test day only on the motor, transmission, driveline and Penske shocks)
A comprehensive (15+ page) packet of information is available on the car to further document it's history and significance. Please contact me with any questions or for further details and I will be happy to mail you the information.
