For Sale: 1955 Cooper Mk IX F3 Racing Car
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 Fellows 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 Sale: 1985 Mazda RX-7 Racing Car
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
For further information contact Roger by phone at: (587) 436-5970

For Sale: 1966 Hayman SR2 CanAm Racing Car
Updated: October 17, 2018
Here is an opportunity to own a real piece of Canadian road racing history! This 1966 Hayman SR2 was designed and built by Roy Hayman of Hayman Racing Components in Ontario.

It features an aluminium hand-formed body over a chrome-moly tube chassis. It is powered by an aluminium Traco Olds V8 with Webers and has a ZFDS25 GT40 gearbox, plus Girling alloy brakes and magnesium wheels.
This car ran in CanAm races at Mosport and Le Circuit Mont Tremblant, with its best finish being a second at the Quebec track with driver Hugh Dixon, under ‘Miss Contessa Cigarette‘ sponsorship.
Asking price: $120,000. Will consider street vehicle trades.

For Sale: 1976 Caldwell D13 – Formula Vee
Updated: June 28, 2018
A championship winner ‘back in the day’, this 1976 Caldwell D13 has a complete log book dating from 1981 until it was last raced in 2016. The car has passed tech inspection in both Canada and the US. Since last raced, the car has been completely rewired using quick release connections wherever possible and the bodywork has been fully stripped, refurbished, painted and new fittings installed. It has the SCCA Kevlar protection strips along both sides of the body.

The D13 is well known to suit larger drivers and this one also has an added roll bar height extension for increased clearance above the helmet. This car needs some simple ducting to the new oil cooler and a new safety harness.
