Chevron B 6 & B 8

Is it worth while to open a thread to trace the 44 examples built of the Chevron B8? Is the model suffering from the same fate as the B16, with almost more fake than real cars about?
Up to now I have identified five, but I have seen many more. A good selection can be found here

http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/car/2...on-B8-BMW.html

and I would love to see all cars there being identified (Silverstone 2005). (and possibly not all cars have a BMW engine too)

Henk...I was just saying politely that you should start a thread similar to the B16 thread

OK, I will kick it off...

How many B8s were produced??
How were they numbered??
How many had BMWpower??

Problem is lots of us know lots about cars with long or short history. But now we have the web and one day the truth will be out.

So, Chris, what's it say on the chassis plate?

I've been trying to get Marcus Pye to dig out all his stuff on these for about 3 years, but apart from the fact that he is a busy man, I get the impression that it is buried in his garage somewhere. I'll keep nagging, though. I also think I may have a few pics and chassis nos which I will try to find.

driftwood has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
MP has a HUGE list of cars history adverts he has created from the early days
i know he will not give over the info but he will of course be able to spill beans on the iffy cars when they apply for fia papers or duplicate chassis numbered cars appear
data is around for those who REALLY need to know

dont forget B6 cars where also built plus 1 B4 or 5 and was it a B12 with brm or climax 2,5 litre motor all look like B8 cars
the 2 1 off cars have been found being restored

Drfitwood, B12 had a Brabham Repco engine. There are rumours that it has "remerged" in Germany, where was it was last reported (long ago) to have been involved in a crash.
