Description

The engine was rebuilt with many new parts four weekends ago. With this mild (130 Hp.) engine the car runs with the fastest Historic or Club Formula Fords (Lola T-340, etc.). The car has totally outstanding handling, probably better than an early 70s Formula Ford. Mk11s were raced in period with Lotus Twincams and Cosworth BDAs and therefore there is the potential here to build a supercar having Formula Atlantic performance levels. This performance level can be upgraded to one step at a time. Interestingly, the car has the ability to run as a sports racer or F2, F3, or FF, removing the fenders. At 970 lbs. is just above the Formula Ford weight minimum!

History

Sir Arthur Mallock, Like Colin Chapman of Lotus and Lola's Eric Broadley, came from the post-war motorsports crucible of the 750 Motor Club and Specials building. The first front engined U2 was built for the 1172 formula in 1958. In 1960 two chassis were adapted for Formula Junior. The introduction of the Clubmans Formula in 1965 finally established Mallock as a volume constructor. The firm produced a number of Formula Ford designs, beginning with an adapted Mk6 which participated in the first ever Formula Ford race in 1967. The Mk9 for '69 and '70 and the Mk9b for '71 provided customer Formula Fords while the works ran a trick Mk9DD featuring a DeDion rear.

The Mark 11 was the most successful Mallock of all time. It won an incredible 22 0f 23 starts in the Shellsport Championship. Today, well prepared Clubmans cars equal or exceed Formula Atlantic times at many English circuits.

For a complete Mallock history see the book "The Lone Furrow".

This particular car came from the UK in the late 1980's, the ownership trail is not known.
