Brabham BT21#46

Looking through this thread on the BT21,I cant find out what ever happened to my Ex Ian Walker Team Celerity Brabham BT21 which I bought off Mike Cornwall ,through MRE,in early 1969.As per this thread it was Chassis no46,which replaced #19 which was tragically written off.I was buying a new BT28,which Graham Coaker was arranging with MRD for me to have cheaper partly unfinished,as he could get it stove enamelled plus get all the suspension cadplated etc.I therefore let him drive this car at the last Silverstone GP Circuit F3 Race that year,which was his last F3 race,having sold his own BT21B to Bert Hawthorne.He had become Production Director at MARCH,so had effectively retired from racing himself.Having received my BT28 around September 69,the BT21 was sold to MRE,after which I lost contact with it??It was modded to BT21B spec top radius arm position,and had special drive shafts that had spiggot bullets that fitted inside the doughnuts to locate the hardy spicer centrally and made for a much quicker in and out of the gearbox/doughnut couplings.It may have gone abroad ,but records of this time as non existant now from Jim Gleave,who ended up running MRE.Any ideas???

Research for two BT-21s

Hi all, I'm writing a piece for an Australian classic car magazine on two BT-21 and would love to know if anyone has info regarding these two cars?

AM245 and AM283 are the chassis numbers and I'm just trying to establish race and owner histories for both. The current owner has supplied me with some information which I want to verify and add to if possible through those with specific knowledge on this forum and elsewhere.

I know that Fred Opert took 245 to the US, possibly in 1965(?) but after that it's a ghost until the current owner bought it as a stripped down project.

Particularly interested to know the racing story of 283 as it was used by Bob Illich in Europe pre-1968 when he bought it back to Australia where it has been since.

Any info would be fantastic and I'm enjoying the wealth and depth of commentary reading through this and other posts.
Cheers

Hello, New to this site. I have a BT21 Formula B that I think that was raced in New York when new. The serial number on the dash is missing. It does have a good AM stamp on the frame. Dumb question. Is there a way to match a chassis number to the Arch Motors number?

Short answer no, there are no cross reference records.
However if you would care to share the AM number either here on the forum or if you'd prefer by PM to me then there is a small chance that it could be narrowed down a bit. Are there any numbers on the roll hoop? Furthermore do you have any idea who the owners have been as that might help too.

BT21 chassis numbers

Hello,
I'm new to the forum. My newly acquired FB Bt21 has no chassis number on the instrument panel. It does have a Arch Motors number. Is there any archives to match an AM# to the chassis #? It was owned by a New York resident in 1968. He's long gone. A gap in the history from 1972 to 1986.
Thank you
Al

Al, who was the New Yorker? And, is there a stamp of the roll hoop? If it raced after 1972, and the roll hoop's original, then it should have SCCA identification. This may help.
It's probably a BT21A rather than a BT21 if it raced in FB.
