I think your right Gerard, looks like a 2 Barrel Holley, and thanks for your comments in post 618, will be out again soon but as I'm older and slower I now need a V8 in the Capri

Gordon Spice Car 1978 ?

Hello Guy's.

Who helps ?

I own this car from 2003 and I am looking for historic information of the car.

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 ?

Great stuff thanks for joining and introducing us to your car.
Is there a CC chassis no. plate anywhere in the engine bay/frame?
A '78 car is likely to be a single digit such as CC5 or CC7 for example...

chunterer, it looks like it has a Ford plate riveted on the slam panel and a "cold" number on the inner sill. May be a road going car then converted dont you think so? Or a leichtbau bare shell fitted later with numbers to have it road registered…
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?

It looks a bit agricultural compared to the new ones that are currently being used but that may just be a function of age.

Peter, did you have the opportunity to watch under the "new ones" when at Goodwood? I was wondering how Ric managed to keep the axle moving freely up and down keeping the arb its main purpose.
I didnt dare the word agricultural… but I often refer the Essex as being Massey Ferguson inspired!!
