Lightweight E-type #850301Researched History

Specifications - 1961 E-Type OTS #850301 also raced under Registration number PNW 127C as well as WAP 66. This car was originally built up overtime as a lightweight competition car from an Opalescent Dark Blue flat floor roadster with outside bonnet locks. Little is know about it's early race history, however the car was damaged in 1970 at Croft, when it was then acquired by Philip Bennett of Leeds, a northern "E" type exponent. Bennett raced the car with some success in 1971, 72, and 73 until it was substantially damaged at Longridge. Bennett retained ownership of the car for the next 21 years and rebuilt it to its present condition which includes an all alloy body, bulkheads, and hardtop by RS Panels of Attercliffe Industrial Estate. Additionally the car features original factory lightweight bonnet, brakes, suspension, and centrelok peg drive "D" alloy wheels. The +330 HP 3.8L engine is full "D" dry sump specifications with a Getrag close ratio 5 speed gearbox
