What date did you have the car? I last have this with Tom Smith of Redwood City CA in September 1977, at which point it still had a Hart t/c in it.
It was originally an F3 car in 1972, that of Randy Lewis

I bought a Brabham from a gentleman in Corpus Christi, TX

Seems like this is the connection......and as Allen knows, I did own a number of cars over the years.

I am confused as to why my acquaintence, Ted Walker, would make my last name into "Noose"

I owned the car back in the early 90's. I have photos somewhere. It was configured as a Formula B car when I owned it and yes, it had a Hart engine.

Rejuvenated -10

Gents,

After a fairly long while, the resurrected and close to correct BT-35-10 is basically ready for, hopefully, a good vintage race or two....Thanks to Andrew for the nose sticker. I now have replaced the Chevron/March wing with a correct -35 wing, reengineered the struts, painted it, new fuel system, and on and on..... I'm basically ready to run after a year.

I've uploaded a pic for reference.

BT35 Fuel Tanks (steel)

I had two sets of replacement steel fuel tanks made up for my car. I need but one and can offer the other set (left and right) to someone else in need. They are uncut galvanized steel so you get to decide your openings. Yellow chromate coated but unfinished in any other way. Please make offer. Offered as a set only.

My thanks,

Hagis
Could you tell me how to get in touch with Jan Persson and/or Lars Svensson as I am trying to locate BT35-20 as I own and race BT35-26 and would like to re-unite the two Torsten Palm Mennen cars. Thanks

JOLLY-CLUB TEAM COLOURS 1971

Does anyone have a decent colour photo of any of the Jolly Club BT35's. I want to repaint mine back to its original scheme, but I only have B&W photos.

I'm guessing they were white with some sort of stripe(s) down the front in green and red???

Thanks.

Just had a quick look.... not sure which photo you are referring to? I can't see a Jolly-Club BT35 !

Dear All,

I'm actually beginning the complete restoration of a BT35-33 (as per tag, but reading the thread looks like there is another one...). The car is in really poor state, have a Ford Pinto fitted on it, plus some modification the chassis that I'm sure is not in the original scheme. Need complee bodywork and wheels, and I have very little decent pictures for coming back at the original life. Hope that I can have some help from you.

Thanks to all

@pantah: I'd try to contact Carlo Giorgio, he may have some picture you need. I'll let you know asap.

Welcome to this forum ombaracing.

For wheels, you can contact Mike Barnby who makes split rims with Brabham style magnesium centre.
For bodywork, contact Simon Hadfield who has body moulds.

What is the history of your car ? An Italian car ?
Is there an Arch Motors number on the frame ?
Can you post some photos.
