Description

For sale is the tail section and snorkel for the original Brian Redman Lola T330 Formula 5000. I purchased the entire body in 2009 but decided to use only the nose. The Redman body, miraculously, remains undamaged after nearly 40 years. Built in 1972, HU14, then crimson in color, was sold to Haas Racing in early 1973 and was raced by Brian Redman, who dominated the F5000 world for several years. In these early years HU14 was also driven by Kevin Bartlett and Derek Bell. In October of 1973 the car was sold to Jerry Hansen who won several races late in 1973 through the end of 1975. Hansen, in 1975, painted the car his signature orange and yellow (see photo) and added the rear aluminum deck. In early 1976 the car was sold to Glenn Brown in Kent, Washington who won several races including an SCCA national event on July 11, 1976. Brown subsequently sold the car back to Jerry Hansen in late 1976 and he raced the car through the 1977 season. From this point in time and, for many years later, the car disappeared from the radar screen. During this same time, the body became separated from the chassis, likely a result of a conversion to Can Am configuration…not uncommon in that era. At a certain point, it was re-painted white and red (with Dan Gurney’s name on the side, strangely) and graced the walls of “Philly’s” sports bar in the mid-west for nearly 20 years (see photo). In 1999, the Redman body was acquired by Mike Milinac of Chicago, who painfully tracked down the history of the body/vehicle. With all this said, the history is solid and well documented. Glenn Brown and Mike Milinac have confirmed the above lineage and many photographs are on file to support this history. The tail section is aluminum and the snorkel is fibreglass. Both have been stripped, filled, smoothed and primed. They are ready for final paint.
