Description

This truly is a rare opportunity to purchase a very straight, honest, and unmolested Chevron 2 Litre sports car. Featuring a Hart 420 S alloy block BDG it should be just about the ultimate specification for it's class. The bodywork is original, as is the tub save for the outer sill covers. Original Bilstiens and original calipers are still on the car. It has apparaently not been raced or even run since the mid '80s.

History

Sold to Mr. M. Marcatelli in 1973 via Eris Tondelli, Chevron's Italian agent. Much of the Italian history is currently unknown but, seeing as the car is fitted with an FT200 gearbox we would think the car was for National races. (These being shorter, the FG400 was not considered necessary). Period photos accompany the car showing it with Italian stickers and an effort is underway to further research the history using these. The car has a non-original fire pull mounted on the right side of the rollover hoop. All cars in Europe were required to have this circa 1975.

The car was purchased in Rome from a Mr. Vitorugo Girolami in May of 1986 by a firm of Belgium race car dealers "Automobile Apal", these people were very active in the buying and selling of very high profile vintage race cars and, were considered very knowledgeable. When Apal purchased the car it had a damaged FVC fitted. This was removed and replaced with the Hart 420S currently fitted. Another photo with the car shows the FVC fitted contemporary with the Italian workshop photos. Apal sold the car to a Monsier Defourny who the current owner purchased the car from.
