I was involved in the shipping of the Mk.V to Japan, alongside a rather nice red Courier. I think this was around 20+ years ago, but if the records have survived I might be able to confirm the chassis numbers of both. I did come across some other paperwork from the early 1980's which indicates that at that time Mk.V 100/93 was owned by William (Bill) Warner of Jacksonville, Florida. Bill stated that the car had previously won a class championship at Daytona in 1959 driven by Art Tweedale. Car was also raced in the early 1960's by Edgar Costley, an Elva dealer.
I am not sure of the ownership order, but Mk.V 100/104 was owned by Frank Allocca of Newton NJ and he mentioned the car had been raced by Jack Stone. The same car 100/104 was also owned by Robert (Bob) Auten of Bedminster NJ, and it seems he had a second Mk.V "both cars totally stripped for rebuild". There was no chassis number given for the second car. If I can find more info I will add later.

Hi Roger,

received an e-mail from Japan, the car doesn't have a chassis number, and they received it some 18 years ago.

Kind regards

That makes sense date wise, but I thought it would have had a chassis ID for shipping and import requirements. Certainly now the Japanese have rather strict "MOT" requirements, and I know we had the Mk.V "MOT" inspected and approved here before it was shipped. ;)

This car is thought to be the Costley / Shamlian Mk. V 100/93
Time frame is right, 1961-62

With the help of Victoracing, :)

I could make contact with Jim Ellis
He owned 100/94, MK5 from 1986 to 1992.

Trying to find Pete Corcoran and Ian Carpenter.

Thank you again
