    This ex. Bill Roberts Le Mans Replica, chassis number 421/200/210, was originally bodied as a fixed head coupe by Dr. Barnet Stungo in 1964. He used it as his everyday car up until his death in 1976 when the car was purchased by well known Frazer Nash expert and Club stalwart Bill Roberts. He converted the body to Mk. II Le Mans Replica style, using an original body from a car that he was restoring as a template, and went on to compete in the car all over Europe for the next 30 years or so. In 2012 the car was sold to its last owner who immediately commissioned Blakeney Motorsport to carry out a cost no object rebuild and all of the related invoices are on file illustrating the vast amounts spent to prepare the car to the highest standards. It subsequently had only one outing, in the Peter Collins Trophy at the Goodwood Members meeting, where Patrick Blakeney Edwards drove the car to 7th overall and was by far the quickest Frazer Nash.

    Just to prove how wonderfully versatile this magnificent car really is, a few weeks ago we drove it from Belgium to Silverstone in the UK on the Thursday, Practiced it on the Friday, Raced it on the Saturday and drove it back on the Sunday, A round trip of over 1200km plus a practice and race, no problems!! What more could you ask for? Goodwood, Mille Miglia and Tour Auto eligible. Historic Sports car racing and road racing at it's best. Fully Documented history file of very large size including original pictures and files on the very original works body still fitted today Registered by the Frazer Nash register, FN209 was constructed in 1954 as a standard 200-series parallel tube chassis, complete with the usual leaf-spring front suspension, Austin rear axle, adjustable rear torsion bars, steel-rimmed centre-lock wire wheels and cast iron brake drums. (mk1 spec) It was fitted with Bristol engine number BS4/412, which was located well back in the chassis as per the Sebring models FN201 and FN207. The engine was subsequently removed by the factory and the rest of the rolling chassis stripped of it's other components and the bare chassis stored at the factory until the late 1960s, AFN passed it over (along with all other remaining post war spares) to the famous lady racing driver Betty Haig, Grand niece of Field-Marshal the Earl Haig, K.G., G.C.B., O.M, she was also a leading member of the Frazer Nash Club. Betty Haig assembled all the remaining parts for FN209 and kept them in storage ready for rebuilding. In 1975, FN209 and all of it's remaining parts were sold to Simon Phillips via Cleobury Garages, Philips then had it rebuilt into it's present Mk2 guise and installed the correct BS4 engine with six-port cylinder head and triple twin-choke carburettors that was supplied by FN to Betty Haig with all the other original parts from FN209, The car was also fitted with the de Dion rear axle and inboard rear brakes to MkII specification at this time. The lightweight body was the one originally built for Jack Walton's ‘Works’ Le Mans Replica FN157, When completed it was registered 'OUG 2' (the first number plate worn by Walton's car, FN157 was 'OUG 3'). Phillips later campaigned the car with success during the 1976/1977 seasons before offering it for sale. The purchaser was Tim Walton (the son of Jack, and first owner of OUG 3) who proceeded to compete with the car during 1981. That same year, Walton was able to purchase the original and complete MKII body previously worn by James Lowe's chassis FN183. This was then transferred to FN209, following which Walton returned to the tracks and competed in, among other events, the 1987 Mille Miglia and 1988 Coppa d'Italia before offering the car for sale in 1992. Michael Johnson was the next keeper who also contested the Mille Miglia, as well as the FIVA World Rally and Pyrenees Rally, before selling to Howard Dyer via Gregor Fisken in 1997. The present owner bought the car from Dryer in March 2011, just three months after extensive revision work had been carried out by Blakeney Motorsport - the work comprising an extensive mix of servicing, repairs and general recommissioning. The car then went back to Blakeney Motorsport with it’s new owner for a further £50,000 worth of fettling, The car is in really excellent condition and is "on the button" This car drives like the wind! You really do not need a faster and better handling road / rally car than this one. One drive and you will be addicted!! As am I. (I’m sure the Devil built this car to lure people into sin, for I would almost surely sell my soul for this one) Comes with new 2016 FIA HTP papers for racing and FIA papers for historic rallying, and is of course eligible for the Mille Miglia and Tour Auto amongst many more of the top World rallies. http://www.historic-competitionservices.eu/nl/frazer-nash-le-mans-rep--200
