This looks like a former SCCA racer that found a new home across the pond. It would be interesting to trace the lineage of this one-of-a-kind (in the UK anyway) racer.

Same car, different listing:

I wonder what gearbox is stirred by the lovely Ferrari-esque gated shifter?

Here it is on the seller's website:
http://motorsport-items.com/racecars/ ... -fastback-historic-saloon
Say, is that a 1200 sedan race car in the background?
I like this guy!

odd location for a fuel tank in terms of weight distribution
must work but always like it in between the rear shock towers
behind the rear seats.

Wow, 25000 GBP!! Be interesting to see if there are any takers at that sort of money.

At today's rate, that equals US$31,591.25! A bit rich for any 1200 enthusiast's blood, I'd imagine. But if it came with a 40' cargo container worth of race spares comprised of unobtainium bits and pieces, along with a spare race-prepped rolling chassis, I might consider it. Awaiting a more detailed spec sheet from the seller - will keep one and all posted on what I find.

It is a beautiful build, very clean. Might it be called a wide-body with those flares?

Here's the pics from the other adverts
