Ph. 1800 456 588

Lloyds Auctions Australia is pleased to offer an assortment of vintage racing cars, vintage petrol pumps, engines and parts from Brian King's 'The King's Garage' collection.

Lots include a one of one Brabham BT21B Cosworth open wheel race car with an exceedingly rare Cosworth SCB four-cylinder engine of which there are believed to be only two or three in existence. Allied to the rarity of the engine and chassis package is a provenance that begins in Brabham's Formula One workshop with its chief engine builder Bob Ilich who was instrumental in the World Constructor and Driver Championships for Brabham in 1966 and '67 who created this very BT21B for himself.

Another Brabham BT21B race car is being offered fresh from a high end 'nut and bolt' restoration in Formula 3 configuration with an MAE Cosworth engine and Hewland gearbox and is ready to compete world-wide in historic formulae including Formula Junior.

The heyday of motor racing in the USA is represented by the gargantuan 1950 Sampson CC-50 Indianapolis 500 racer. Resplendent in its 1950 Indy 500 livery, #27 also comes virtually unused since a thorough restoration in the US prior to its arrival in Australia to the King's Garage collection.

Dirt track oval racing has historically been the feeder category for INDYCAR and NASCAR series and Lloyds is proud to be offering the #22 Chuck Porter 1947 Kurtis Kraft Offenhauser midget which has significant race provenance along with another iconic midget the #35 1974 Edmunds VW 'El Toro Garage' car. Still on the dirt track theme is the #5 1985 Chevy-powered Watson which has a dark history as five family members died while racing this car.

Back on tarmac with the #12 1974 Ed Zink Super Vee featuring a highly-tuned VW engine and a Lotus 23B replica built to run in historic racing while road cars are represented by a 1930 Ford Model A and a fully restored 1974 International Harvester D-1310 4x4 truck.
