For Sale: 1955 Cooper Mk IX F3 Racing Car

The Cooper Mk IX was the state of the art for small single seaters in 1955.

Posted: January 19, 2019

The Cooper Mk IX was the 1955 Formula 3 Champion racing car. Only four years later, the Cooper Car Company went on to win both the Formula One Constructor’s Championship and the Driver’s Championship with Jack Brabham. They repeated that success in 1960.  The evolution in design from these earlier Formula 3 cars is very apparent.

This car is reported to actually be one of the Cooper team cars driven by Jim Russell (who would later found the famous race drivers’ school) to that 1955 world championship. The current owner purchased the car in the mid 1980’s from Dr. Robert Follows of B.C. and it has been on display is his collection of cars and motorcycles since then. It has not been started or driven since that purchase.

(Note: Click on the photos for higher resolution images.)

I have a letter from Dr. Fellows describing the condition of the car and its maintenance history when sold. A copy of this letter and additional pictures are available to serious enquiries.

Asking price: $40,000

For further information, contact Al by mobile: (614) 774-4936 (Note: in the EST time zone)

For Sale: 1985 Mazda RX-7 Racing Car

This 1985 Mazda RX-7 GSL-SE is race ready!

Posted: January 4, 2019

This excellent race ready ’85 Mazda RX-7 GSL-SE is ready to go to a new owner for many years of affordable racing.

I’ve had this car for the last three years next to my ’67 Alfa Romeo step nose. I’ve decided to concentrate on racing Alfas as that is my real passion, so I am reluctantly saying goodbye to this RX-7, even though it is actually faster and handles better!

The engine has just been rebuilt by Mazda Rotary specialist Barry Allen and has a mild Bridgeport with about 200 hp. I chose the mild port for reliability.  It only has about 2 hours on it since being run in.

It has the 13A engine with race rotors and crank, and prepped housing for better cooling. It has a Holley 650 set-up with racing beat manifold and exhaust, fully adjustable suspension all around and four sets of wheels and tires. It has a fuel cell, safety harness and full (BC accepted) roll cage with the wheel well braces. It runs on normal fuel.

The car is well set-up. I raced it in CACC Vintage but it is very capable of running in regular sports car club events as well. It is truly race-ready; I managed sub 1:20 lap times at Mission during the Vintage races last October.

Asking price: $9,995
