The implication is that up to four went into FB but I can only see the McMillan car in 1965, Bob Parker (Portland, OR) and William Kneeland (New England) with FB Lotus 32s in 1967 and Bill Rutan with a FC one in 1968.

I omitted Peter Sadler's 1600cc Ford version in UK libre in 1965.

And Peter Studer now has one in historics.

Allen,

I think you will find that the 2 Australian cars are FL , i.e. 32-FL-7 and 32=FL-8.

Leo's certainly was as I recovered the chassis plate about 20 years ago from a previous owner who had it glued to his bar fridge.

You're quite right Bryan - it was a cutting-and-pasting mistake

32-1: 1967 Brian Jordan, then 1969 maybe John Gillmeister. MN 23.1.69 p. 5 says ex Clark 1964
32-4: Later in 66 to Harry Stiller
32-6?: Maglia selling a 32 AS 6.1.67

Parker keeps his FB car into 1968

This is useful: Autosport 11 Sep 1964 p399 says that David Prophet "now has two F2 Brabhams having swapped his Lotus 32 for Frenchman Jacques Maglia's Brabham".

Were there two Tasman 32s?
If so, why does everyone describe the ex-Dawson Damer 32B as unique?

Which is the extremely original 32 Tasman car that is in the States. Still as bought by its British owner when only a couple of years old, and taken with him when he emigrated?

Peter,

There were/are two only Lotus 32 cars in Australia, Leo Geoghegan's 1.5 Ford Twin cam car new to Leo as the Lotus Distributor in Australia , and the 32B Team Lotus car of Jim Clark with 2.5 Climax FPF.
No other Lotus car of the 32 series ever competed over here at any time.

I believe you car you are talking about is owned by John Dimmer , and stand corrected but believe that is actually a Lotus 35 .

Bryan Miller.

The name I was given was John Arnold.

What happened to the Leo Geohegan car?

Peter,

The Geoghegan car , last heard of sold to Switzerland / somewhere close to there about 10 years ago after a massive restoration by Harry Galloway [ ex Lotus / Surtees /Ralt master fabricator] , have never heard of it again.

I am afraid I don't have any info on a John Arnold.

I'm trying to find out more about the car I heard about, but suspect it will take some time.

I've got a few contacts in Switzerland, will see if I can find out anything about the Geoghegan car, but there are a few secretive collectors there so it might be very low profile.

Peter Studer was out at Brands Hatch over the Bank Holiday in 32-FL-7 with a Lotus twin cam engine (programme said 1498).

Alan,
1498cc is the correct capacity for this car in period , Australian A.N.F 1.5 class.

Is the car still painted white with Total oil co. stripes with gold pinstriping. ??

Thanks, I am aware of the 1500 cc limit in the Australian class. Similarly Michael Schryver's Lotus 27.

The car is white with red and blue horizontal side stripes. The following photo was found on another thread on Ten-tenths (Brands Masters Historic Festival in Historic Racing Today). (http://tentenths.com/forum/showthrea...=106718&page=7 )
