Description

Falcon Shells Ltd was founded by Peter Pellandine in January 1957 and with him from Ashley Laminates he brought the 750 shell; now called the Falcon Mk1 for the Austin Seven SWB chassis and the Sports Racer now called the Falcon Mk2.

Formerly the Ashley Sports Racer, the mark 2 shell fitted wheelbases between 6 ft 11 in (2.11 m) and 7 ft 4 in (2.24 m). Primarily designed for the track, its styling was influenced by sports racers like the Jaguar D type. In September 1957, a hard top was also made available.

Raced in period until 1965, this Falcon Mark II has recently been comprehensively restored and is offered with a detailed restoration file. Italian registered with ASI papers, this beautiful Barchetta is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner. Driven only 400km since restoration.
