Ex Barrie ‘Whizzo Williams’. Last official conversion to Le Mans Coupe specification by the Lenham Motor Company.
Glassfibre component manufacturer Lenham turned to full-scale body construction towards the late 1950s/early 1960s, favouring the Austin-Healey Sprite as the basis for some pretty Le Mans-style coupes at the same time as the works’ own successful endurance racing programme was exploring similar avenues.
A historic race car for most of its time, starting life as a historic rally car, campaigned by Gordon Howie (old FIVA papers included not FIA). Latterly bought by Barrie “Whizzo” Williams and subsequently bought by the vendor from Barrie. A fully race prepared car looked after by CCK Historic. This is a class winning car, having won the overall Class E HRS championship.
The car prepared to HSCC HRS specification (HVIF papers), but also compatible with many other series including the HRDC. Most importantly a letter on file confirms that this was the last official conversion to Le Mans Coupe spec by the Lenham Motor Company.
