Chevron B47

I am looking for the Chevron B47 and B47B story and chassis historic.
Everythings from Derek Mac Mahon Racing B47 / B47B-Toyota and Helmut Bross Motorsport (German) B47-VW.

Hi Dan. I have interest for story and chassis historic from B47 only Derek Mc Mahon and Helmut Bross.
Example the story of 47-79-02.
Derek Mac Mahon (Roe), Gerry Amato, Patrick Lecompte (1981 - 1982 F3 french championship), Bernard Pourchet (french hillclimb with Citröen engine) and now Dominique Kieffer (restored for French Classic Formula 3)
I am looking for the story of the other B47 chassis

1979:
McMahon has three cars initially:
Devaney [chassis 3?]
Jordan [rented to Rick Gorne at British GP] later sold to Amato?
Johansson
Roe [you say chassis 2 what is your evidence?] Run by John Clark not McMahon I think
KWS have three cars by 1 April 1979, one or probably two of these subsequently to Bross.
Trivatello has at least one car for Gianlucca Messini and possibly a second, since by 1982 there are two B47s running in Italian F3.

Chassis 8 appears for Devaney as a development car in late spring, and I think this was probably the works test car. Rented to David Warner at British GP and Martin McCarthy at the end of 1979 season. Rebuilt by Richard Brown to B49 spec in 1982 [and given plate from B49-02], then Chris Knapman, Dave Whitehead and to Pete and Sue Griffiths.

John Lewis appears with a car later in the season which may be built outside the series [he was mechanic at the works] or a rebuild of a McMahon car

So ten or eleven built if we include Lewis as a new car.

Chassis 8 has now been sold by Sue Griffiths to Graham Henson. It has had the 2.0 Millington engine removed and is now up for sale again as a "project".

Are you sure Gerry Amato had 2 B47s Papa? When he bought one, late 79, he already owned a March 773 and an RT1, so I'm not sure why he'd also need 2 B47s...Roe was run by the RAM team (from memory) that year, backed by David Clark Cars and Riva Watches.
