The number on the rear frame is 72 49.

With the help of Chris Townsend I already know it's the McCully-Magee car.

I'm still searching for more info and pictures.

Steve Petersen passed away this past summer and I am helping wife Lori sell the Brabham BT-38-16 F2 car. https://racecarsdirect.com/Advert/De...abham-bt-38-f2

BT38, Bob Willis

Mr. Willis registered BT38-11 in the Brabham Register in 2004 as
-x Rondel Racing, perhaps x-Reuttemann.

I worked for Graham Hill in 1972 - his BT38 was run by KAYDON Racing - Dave Kaylor and Peter Donnelly - ( both ex-Brabham) out of an old stables in Cobham, Surrey and then out of Mo Gomm's workshops in Old Woking - alongside Tom Belso's BT38, run by Brian Lewis under the Team Viking banner. and various other occasional visitors, inc Wilson Fittipaldi's BT38, ( run by Richard Divilla ) and Dave Brodie's "Run Baby Run" Escort .

Delivery of the BT38 was delayed and Graham borrowed his 1971 car ( BT36 - Rondel Racing) back from Chris Meek - Tate of Leeds - for the Thruxton Easter meeting which he won. That car was in Tate of Leeds colours - the BT38 ran as Jagermeister all year. ( and the ornate script logos were hand-painted - the circular ones - of a Stags head - were decals)

The first BT38 chassis he had was damaged in a startline accident at Crystal Palace - and the car was rebuilt around a new tub - the old tub was repaired and returned to the team, I think after we returned from Imola. It was not used again during the season and I left before the car was sold so I don't know what happened to it.

He won the Monza lottery in the rebuilt car and just after that was when I joined the team. It is possible the new chassis was the one without a plate as it was a spare purchased ( although knowing GH, probably on extended loan!) from the Brabham factory in Addlestone.
As we only had the one car we did not need to be "flexible" with chassis numbers for Customs Carnet purposes - so no "velcro" chassis plate required.

The car ran in 1972 with 2 engines a Felday unit - which was I believe almost 2 litres and a Racing Services ( Ken Britten, then based in Twickenham) unit - around 1800 cc. The RS engine was less powerful but more reliable, the Felday was prone to spewing oil out everywhere ( ask John Surtees @ Imola - he finished the race with most of GH's oil in his face!).

At the end of 1972 the car was being prepared to go to South America for the end of season Temporada Series - and hopefully be sold there - but the Shadow F1 project intervened and the plans were cancelled.

This was last F2 car Graham Hill drove I think and the only Monocoque.

I would like to know where the car went - I have seen comments that it might have ended up as a Can-Am car ?.

Ian.
