: Chevron B19 GBP 195000

car description

Description: We are very pleased to offer this very special 1970 Chevron B19 chassis "70-S-10" for sale. 70-S-10 is the prototype B19 built in the late summer of 1970 using the repaired and modified chassis from B16-DBE-10 which had been entered by the factory for the 1970 Nurburgring 500 Kms but was crashed in practice by Dieter Quester in its one and only race appearance.

When asked for suggestions as to how to make the B16 coupe quicker and more competitive against the new spider Lola T210, Brian replied, “make it look like a Porsche 908/03” and hence the spider-bodied B16S was born. The new body design proved an instant success, so a proper B19 prototype, using the chassis from B16-DBE-10, was built by Derek Bennett in the cornered-off section of the Bolton factory which served as his “secret special projects” workshop, hence the “S” designation of this car. This was also where the B16S, the later 3-ltre B27S and the B41 Formula 1 car were built and developed. This B19 is exceptionally well documented with continuous ownership from new. It has good early in-period race history (see below) and is offered f
