MS750/01 750 Formula Car Complete Package For Sale

Sheppard MS750/01 750 Formula car including; drawings, jigs, moulds, spares and trailer.

Built in 2008 and successfully raced on and off over the following 9 years. With one class championship, one outright pole and win and 3 podiums. Unfortunately, the car was crashed in 2017 and I am unable to give it the time it deserves to be rebuilt. As a result, the complete project is for sale and includes:
• Complete car (crash damaged, see below)
• Complete set of drawings for every part which is not ‘off the shelf’
• Complete set of body moulds, suspension jigs etc…
• Spare set of wheels and very new wet tyres
• Huge spares package including:
o Enough parts to assemble 2nd gearbox
o Suspension parts including rear axle, half shafts, diffs etc…
o Many spares of uniquely manufactured parts
o Engine block and bottom end
o All the bits you need at a racing meeting
• Trailer (single axle, tyre rack, storage/jerry can locker, winch)

The car pre-dates the transverse rules but is mid (rear) engine and uses a Fiat C514 gearbox driving a live BMC axle and has proven to be very reliable with no mechanical DNFs in over 45 races including 2 Birkett 6 Hours.

The accident (Cadwell 2017) has damaged the body and chassis as well as some suspension components. In order to get this car up and running you would need to:
• Repair/re-mould the body (moulds included)
• Produce a new spaceframe chassis. Drawings included and some sections such as the roll hoop could be transferred
• Produce some new suspension wishbones/linkages (drawings and jigs included)
• Transfer components from old chassis to new. Major items like the engine/gearbox/radiator/dampers/wheels/exhaust were all unaffected by the accident

Just prior to the accident the engine had been serviced with new oil, plugs etc… and a new Helix uprated clutch fitted.

Car is located near Folkestone in Kent. Please call or email for more information.

Open to sensible offers.

Please see the Build Section for details/history of the build of the car. I will advertise on the club site etc... in due course. PM me if you are interested at all or email: sheppard_max 'at' hotmail.com

Hi Max
Sorry to lose you from the Formula, but good luck in your new ventures!!

Are those epics as it is now or was that original build?

Max,
Sorry to see that you won't be racing that car again. It isan impressive bit of engineering. I do hope that you find a new owner who can restore it to its former glory.

I hope that we may see you again in 750F or at least spectating.

We had good time!

Regards,

Dave

Thanks Dave! We've certainly had some good times although I don't recall it ever being that close!

Never say never...

Still available for anyone looking for a winter project.

Would suit someone keen to build their own car but doesn't have the design confidence (or time) to embark on a full 'clean sheet' project.

Sold!

Hopefully she will be back on the grid next season, and you never know there may even be a twin....

Sad but glad she will be rebuilt and used as racing cars are meant to be and not rotting in my garage.

Hi folks. Guilty as charged. Have bought it with a fellow racer Richard Jenkins with a view to sharing the car in 2019 while we build a second car for 2020. We both have had a number of years in locost and fancy a bit of slicks and aero action. I am sure we will have many questions as we go along, so bear with us.
