  1. Yes Mr K.some of the story is wrong though. I bought the car from a solicitor who raced it and used it as a road car. He purchased it from Gerry Marshall. I had it painted black with red decals and then black with gold decals. Really reliable car considering it's past history. I did sell it to Mr Haynes as I knew it was an important car. My mrs said dont bore every one about the car again.......πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜‚ there is a lot of info on the forum ref opw679w..Hope all's Mike
