The ex-Jack Fairman/Mike Spence 1962 works car. A piece of Grand Prix History Completely rebuilt with no expense spared(£90K).

Welcome at Goodwood, Monaco and all the best places An attractive way into a very exclusive club in a car that will require no further investment of time or money It's a glorious, late July afternoon in 1962 and the massed crowds in the stands at Aintree chatter excitedly in anticipation just prior to the start of the British Grand Prix. You are sitting in the new 'Works' Emeryson F1 (Chassis 1004) and in qualifying the car has gone well with the 1500cc Climax FPF running sweetly. The four-cylinder was never going to be a match for the V8 cars, however, Innes has qualified a remarkable third and a top ten finish might just be on. The man with the '5-Minute' board strides self-consciously back and forth across the front row with the board high above his head, and not for the first time in the last few minutes, you tighten your shoulder straps just a tad. The early afternoon sun glints off the first few rows of cars and you can clearly see Jim Clark's distinctive helmet in the Lotus 25 on pole with Surtees' Lola not far away in second. Innes Ireland makes up the front row in his four-cylinder Lotus 24, well aware that the fast-starting Bruce McClaren in his Cooper and Graham Hill in the powerful BRM P57 are only a few feet behind. At the 3-Minute board, Dan Gurney and Jo Bonnier start their Porsches almost in unison and Richie Ginther's BRM immediately follows suit. Just in front of you the wily Jack Brabham buttons his Lotus into life and gives a 'thumbs up' to Roy Salvadori in the Lola whilst Phil Hill's pretty 156 Ferrari seems reluctant to cooperate but eventually concedes with a calico-tearing rasp and a waft of fragrant Castrol 'R'. Fast forward 57 years to Goodwood next September and it really could be 'You' sitting in 1004 on the Glover Trophy grid at next year's Revival, and, amazingly, surrounded by a number of other cars which shared the '62 season. The Emeryson qualifies for the Glover Trophy (1.5litre Formula 1 cars raced between 1961 and 1965) and, as a result of its rarity (it's the last surviving example), its standard of preparation and its crowd-pleasing, sunshine yellow paint finish, has regularly been invited by Lord March to take part in this prestigious race for Grand Prix cars. Equally the Automobile Club de Monaco has kindly invited this particular car to all of it's Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, including the most recent in May of this year. Paul Emery was a racing driver and creator of a number of front-wheel drive Formula 2 and 3 cars in the early fifties, all campaigned under the name of "Emeryson" and latterly with lots of help and some necessary funding from former Cooper Works driver, Alan Mann, the Emeryson marque went on to become an established constructor of F2 cars. The 1961 season saw the latest development by Paul as the all-new Emeryson-Climax F1 car was introduced to the world of Formula 1 and the car was much admired for its styling and engineering standards. The Belgian race team, 'Ecurie Nationale Belge', were particularly interested and ordered three Maserati-engined cars for the 1961 season to be piloted by Lucien Bianchi, André Pilette, and Willy Mairesse and all were painted in the national racing colour of bright yellow. Sadly a combination of bad luck and some high-speed accidents meant that it wasn't long before all three cars were 'hors de combat' however Bianchi managed a 4th at the Brussels Grand Prix and Mairesse an 11th in Syracuse in April. Subsequently, they changed to Lotus 18s and the Emeryson cars were offered for sale. The persuasive Tony Settember talked his America
