This car came from the US to Europe about 10 years ago. Fitted with what is said to be a long stroke BD it was actively racing up to about 6 years ago. Then owner then lost interest and the car has been stored in far from ideal conditions, resulting in some oxidation and damage from the elements. The gear ratios were removed for use in another car and the case not closed, so the bearings and remaining gears may have suffered damage. The engine is said to have a problem with a liner but is complete and was running. The left side of the tub has what appears to be a wheel ding in the skin.


The prototyp B20, the car was configured as a Formula B car with a Lotus twincam for the last year of the North American Formula B series and campaigned by American importer Fred Opert and driven by Bobby Brown and Jim Grob. It was one of three Fred Opert cars and may have been the car that Bobby used to give the B20 it's first win at Bogota, Columbia, on February 27, 1972.

The car was then outfitted with a BDA and campaigned with some distinction in the SCCA for a number of years as a Formula Atlantic. The car came to Europe about 10 years ago and was raced for about 4 years until the owner put it aside.
