Description

This proper March Formula 2 car is shabby but complete. A veteran of Frech hillclimbs, it is a complete roller but has later March bodywork. In period the car ran BMW, then BDA and FVA engines. It is the perfect basis for a front running Formula 70 car. The history of the car is complete to the present.

History

March, with BMW power for the works team, totally dominated F2 in 1973. An only mildly updated customer car was produced for '74 but the works team caused considerable grumbling among customers by showing up with a special side rad version for their use alone. The design was abandoned for '75 with a new wider tub design which carried on less successfully into '77, when in desperation March dusted off the 742 prints and produced the 772P, based on the original March tub design dating back to '71. There is far more in common between a 78 or 79 March F2 or Atlantic car and this 1974 car that there is between the '75-'77 cars, making this a much more capable chassis than it's date might suggest.

One of 30 March F2 cars produced in 1974, this car was campaigned by Maublank (sp?) in selected F2 events and predominantly hillclimbs. It was then campaigned by Jimmy Mieusset (sp?) and later was hillclimbed with BDA and FVA powerplants, there being a 2 litre displacement limit in French hillclimbing.
