Description

The Alexis Marque is not well known in the U.S. but the firm produced front running Formula Juniors and then Formula Fords throughout the Sixties and early Seventies. When a teenage James Hunt decided to become World Champion he chose an Alexis Mk15 for his first racecar. The Mk15 is an evolution of the Mk14, which in turn was based, like many early Fords, on the firm's F3 car, the Mk9. The Alexis concern, formed by 50s specials builder Alex Francis and Australian engineer Bill Harris, neatly upstaged Lotus at the dawn of Formula Ford, capturing the first volume order for cars from the Russell Racing School. The Mk14 thus became the second ever Formula Ford design, right after the Lotus 51. Alexis Cars were imported into the U.S. by Fred Opert.

This particular car is complete but hovering somewhere between needing a complete restoration and being able to undergo a "running restoration". The paintwork is perhaps the worst element of the car although the underlying glassfibre is sound and not too heavy. The car had been running and campaigned as a Club Ford when it was purchased by the current owner about 7 years ago. If has seen no use since. The car is in very original condition with all of the running gear the correct components down to the knob adjustable Armstrong dampers and the carburetor trumpet. The car is believed to have a significant history which is still being researched. The dash plaque reads:
