39PH. The Ultimate 289 Cobra.
1963 Le Mans, Willment, Jack Sears.
The Cobra is currently on display at Retromobile in Paris; purchase details via FISKENS
I so hope it finds a home in the UK, (preferably mine! :lol: )

I rather like the switch signage.

Whilst I appreciate that your garage is probably the most deserving place for it to reside in I don’t think your mum would appreciate living under canvas if indeed the sale of the house would secure its purchase.
I note there is a photo of it pre FIA doors. Is that how you remember it?

To be honest, Peter, I don’t remember it! :(
I was only 18 months old at most when Dad stopped racing, But it’s the wide-arch form (pretty much as it is now,just somewhat less pristine) I know from photos!
Mum has been talking about downsizing for some time...😉

I’ve just asked the Boss if I can have an advance on my wages:
“How much?” He asked.
“About a hundred and five years’ worth should cover it”...
“I’ll speak to HR...😉

That’ll do, Clive... and change enough to build a Roger King garage too! 👍🏻😁
