SOP777S, built in 1979 by Cyril Bolton. A Works-spec car, with Abingdon built dry-sumped 3,5 litre V8. According to written information 290 hp at 7.000 rpm. Always torque. Right hand drive. Virtually intact, with less than 12.000 (rally)miles. Found in Holland in 2004. Interesting British rally history. By a former owner described as an ‘undrivable-beast’. No beauty.
At Tachyon for a technical check-up, update FIA-safety rules and for season 2007 a chassis rebuilt. Owner wants to join (historic) FIA stage rally’s in Europe. Dry tarmac first, please.
