Autosport (UK) - - AUTOSPORT INTERNACIONAL -

Es­ti­mate: £180,000-£225,000

At a stretch, the Emeryson may even be con­sid­ered good value con­sid­er­ing that an equiv­a­lent Lo­tus 25 will cost a fur­ther £100,000. The brain­child of rac­ing driver and front-wheel-drive For­mula 2 and F3 car de­signer Paul Emery, this 1961 Cli­max­pow­ered ma­chine is the last sur­vivor of four cars built. It was driven in pe­riod by Jack Fair­man and Mike Spence, with Spence no­tably fin­ish­ing se­cond in the Brands

Hatch Lewis-evans Tro­phy. After a £90,000 restora­tion, in­clud­ing a re­built FPF mo­tor, this 1.5-litre car has com­peted in the 2018 Monaco His­toric Grand Prix and been in reg­u­lar Good­wood Re­vival and His­toric Grand Prix Cars As­so­ci­a­tion ac­tion since ’98.
