Description

This car is just have a comprehensive and meticulous restoration completed. It features the correct FT-200 and a Vegantune twincam. Possessing a virtually complete US ownership trail, the car was purchased as a wreck, less engine and gearbox, and a comprehensive restoration begun. A new chassis was commissioned and new bodywork produced. The entire car has been beautifully restored.

History

The BT-29 was a Formula B development of the completely dominant BT-28 design of 1969. The BT-28 was intended to be the front-line F3 car for 1969 but development and deliveries progressed slowly. After an extended development of the works cars by Tim Schenken the car eventually became the viceless and controllable car that customers had come to expect of Brabham.

In 1970 the BT-28 had become the car of choice for privateers, taking 23 of 60 major F3 races. The BT-29 is an incremental development intended for use in US Formula B, although some were used without major success in European F2. In the States, the BT-29 became as dominant and desirable in Formula B as the BT-28 had been in Formula 3.

This particular car competed in North America, with virtually the entire car ownership in the US being known. It was crashed heavily by the prior owner, Frank Monise, Jr, at Lagua Seca in the early 70s.
