Eleven Series 1 Le Mans. Owner, Dave Boland, UK.
This car was exported new to USA in 1956 and ran in SCCA Southern Region events. It was fortunately located in the Louisiana swamp lands in the mid 80's and was in a remarkably unmolested condition.

The car was returned to England and it has recently undergone restoration by Dave Abbott and Simon Braithwaite. The car is fitted with a 1460 Coventry Climax engine and an Austin gearbox. Currently, the car is undergoing paintwork and will hopefully be seen at various circuits during 2008.
