Built for the ISSC series, the Reynard-Chrysler was a unique concept in motor-racing intended to take young drivers from the various two-litre single-seater formulae and prepare them for future stardom in Formula 1 and CART.
The combination of a new, state-of-the-art chassis from world-famous specialist manufacturer Reynard and a light but powerful V6 engine from American giant Chrysler, was expected to produce a simple and inexpensive racing car with shattering performance
Chassis: Reynard carbon composite monocoque FIA crash tested to F3000 requirements with double-impact on nose box for use on oval courses. Simple but effective, very forgiving handling. Bodywork: Glass-fibre bodywork sections. Aluminium wings. Foam cockpit surround and head protection. Engine: All-aluminium Chrysler 3,500cc 90º 24-valve V6. Direct air inlet and fuel injection, MBE electronic control system, developing 325 bhp @ 7,000 rpm and 260 lb.ft torque @ 5,500 rpm. Transmission: Hewland NMT 6-speed sequential gearbox, TPT Powerflow Limited-slip differential. Shock Absorbers: Quantum adjustable
Purchased by the current vendor to compete in sprints and hill climbs, plus track days. The vendor sent the car to Geoff Page Racing and had the engine completely rebuilt with modified valve train at a cost of £9,985. The gearbox was removed at the same time and sent to Hewland, where it was fully overhauled and reconditioned at a slightly lower cost.
On the button and ready to go, it’s eligible for the BOSS series, and wouldn’t disgrace itself in the right hands for a fraction of the money of an F1 car. A realistic Reserve has been applied.
