Description

This is one of the most classic and formidable F5000 cars of its era, with a genuine and recorded history from the day it was built. It has been totally restored to it's original colour and specification. Unraced since restoration, it is a runner but has not circulated at speed since it was restored. It is not race-prepared but instead accurately restored to as-new condition. It could be race-ready with the addition of some non-period safety equipment (such as a fire system) and a go-through. Some of the plumbing might want updating to modern materials as all original-spec equipment was used. It's restorer is a professional race mechanic and race-quality hardware and fasteners were employed in the restoration. It is accompanied by an embossed Verification Statement from Trojan/McLaren.

History

The McLaren M10 was a very famous and successful racing ear in both European and American Championships. A sister car driven by Peter Gethin won the Europeon Formula 5000 Championship in 1969 and 1970. This car was built in 1969 by McLaren, and sold on the 14th, June 1969 to Sir Nicholas Williamson as a hillclimb car. In 1970 he won the British Hill Championship, the car was then converted to "B" specifications by the works for circuit racing.
