Description FRAZER NASH Le Mans Replica 'replica', Crosthwaite & Gardner, detail, history

RetroMarques Ltd is proud to present this rare, FRAZER NASH LE MANS REPLICA ‘REPLICA’ for sale on behalfof the owner
An opportunity to purchase a rare, Crosthwaite & Gardner
replica Frazer Nash Le Mans Replica. 
MNU894 has comprehensive history, correct UK V5C registration and is highly
accurate with much attention to authentic detail including comprehensive
restoration by IN Racing of Nottingham.
Specification/equipment:
Bristol 6-cylinder (1971cc) with billet steel crank, Carillo rods, Cosworth
pistons, lightened flywheel, IN Racing camshaft, alloy big sump, purpose built
exhaust, producing circa 140bhp
4-speed gearbox with gated reverse and Lightweight Overdrive unit (Bristol OD toggle
switch)
Weather equipment including full mohair tonneau with centre zip
Aero screen shrouds fitted with a pair of aero screens (great looks, but the
full screen [per photos] is a practical everyday/touring alternative)
Documentation:
An extensive history file accompanies the car with letters detailing ownership,
car registration and past history, the original (green) logbook, Frazer Nash
Replica ‘replicas’ article describing the Crosthwaite & Gardiner cars (including
a comparison between these and the later Werner Oswald kit cars) and a box file
of various F-N articles, magazines and other documents such as period racing
photos.
MNU was re-worked extensively so as to refine the bodywork
and now accurately represents the original Frazer Nash Le Mans Rep.  Indeed, a highly original, well-known, Le
Mans Rep was available and used as a reference car for this re-work which is fully
documented on a photo record and carried out by specialists at IN Racing.
MNU looks lovely – genuinely impressive - in the dark blue,
slightly patinated paintwork and the Bristol straight-6 starts with a glorious
bark.  She is manoeuvrable and easy to
drive, powerful and quick on the road, with a very responsive throttle yet
quite light, beautifully balanced steering and also good brakes – clearly a
very well-sorted, ‘tight’ car and hugely enjoyable on a good road.
With original Frazer Nash Le Mans Replica values in excess
of £600k, what better way to enjoy the experience than with this highly
authentic ‘Replica’ and with this particular example, a car which several
owners of an original Le Mans Rep have reported drives better than many
originals!
£ - POA (ebay price is indicative only, will not allow 'POA'!)
