1965 Brabham BT16 F2 Race Car - SOLD

This is now SOLD. Search for similar items.


This vehicle has been restored and maintained in exceptional condition. It conforms exactly to the 1964/65
F2 specification down to the correct fasteners and hose clips. It is in race ready condition and drives and
handles just as a Brabham of it's era should.


Although a chassis number is not apparent on this car it has been examined by various experts and declared a
genuine factory car. Imported back to the UK from the US in the early 1980's it was restored by John Fenning
(Willans Seat Belts) and issued with FIA papers by the HSCC in 1986. Raced for a couple of years in the UK
by Max Samuelcamps, it was brought to New Zealand in 1990 and carefully restored to concours condition.
Since that time it has been fastidiously maintained. It remains in excellent condition and is an easy to drive and operate
single seater.
