In fairness one of those looks great but it is not a competition built CC Racing car.

CC13 was sold at auction yesterday. Don't know what it went for, it was listed as £90k - £120k, but I understand the new owner is a racer.

There is my told that it is a ex Gordon Spice Car and the car has raced in the 1978 24 hrs of Spa.

I know an old owner of the car and he has it bought in 1988-1989 from a engineer who worked by Carly Motor's from Zoetermeer in the Netherlands.

He told me that it is a ex Belga car and it was from the team of Michel de Deyne with the drivers Frank de Caluwe and Teddy Pilete.

The car is from 1978, T hats for sure.

I am looking for information for the period 1978 -1988.

Who help's ?
For more pictures, Look at my facebook Album :

The pictures are of the car as I bought it in 2003.

I'm surprised by the huge part linking the rear sway bar to the axle.
FormuleA3, any other pic detailing the roll bar and the front suspension?

Adri, its absolutely no gospel but I would go for a MkIII built in Germany Cologne plant in September of 1978 (dunno time of the day though). Probably she was born as a XL, engine 2.3 litre HC fitted with a 4 speed gearbox, cwp ratio 3.22 in Atlas, LHD. Trim color, red cloth, exterior difficult to say whether grey or beige or gold metal or nevada beige. If this is right (please James or Peter or others correct if I'm wrong) its probably a road going car next converted to a racing car as so many others. Hope this helps.

Ok, I don't want to dispel any enthusiasm so I'm going with a period competition Grp 1 car but not CC. The rollcage looks standard Safety Devices from around 1990, not legal now btw. The vin plate is not a UK number according to various search sites. CC cars had a separate plate with the serial number stamped on it. I.e CC13 etc. Looks like a 40DFI carb. CC ran 48IDA.

So, probably not (Happy to be corrected) a CC car but a club racer of approx mid 80s. Worth more investigation methinks.

Yep, Ford Germany stamped plate gives a LHD car (Lenk 1) and the battery tray looks to be located on the right of the car. English genuine 3.0 cars had the battery tray located on the left (english passenger side!). Anyway you can have authentic fun with which is IMHO the most important thing. How many CC cars retain their original body today?

CC13

Hi Guys
My name is Mark, I'm fortunate enough to be the technician now looking after the Belga/Gordon Spice liveried Gp 1 car CC13. We've only had it since the recent auction. I had a great chat with Dave Cook (what a gent!) and gleaned a bit of info. As we received the car with absolutely nothing in the way of set up sheets etc I would be grateful for any information that I can get on set up, ride heights etc etc etc that anyone has. We intend to run it as a Gp 1 car so there's not a great deal we can change but anything would be better than nothing. Cheers Mark

Hi Mark, you lucky guy! When you say Group 1 may be you mean Grp 1,5 or Grp 1+ if your car retains some bits such like a big Weber 48 IDA carb'.
Sure you will receive great help from here. Did you weight the car with or without any ballast? Do you know if the car retains its original CC shell? You could also have a look to the homologation form # 5336, free download on the FIA website (consultation only).
