1959 Cooper Monaco CM6-59 2-LitreCM6-59 was first purchased by Harry Blanchard and raced in 1959 by John Fitch at Lime Rock. It continued racing in the USA throughout the 1960's eventually, like so many European race cars, being fitted with a V8. During this time various owners included Kreisler/Fitch, Harry Carter, Mort Wood and finally Ed Battye who last raced it at the Marlboro Speedway in 1966.
CM6-59 then passed through more owners and was in the hands of Stirling Moss by 1979. The car was now back to the original 1959 specifications. Stirling raced in historic racing, including a race in Monaco in 1982. Shortly after it went to Ron Finger who continued to race. In the last few years the current owner, Mark Clubb, has raced CM6 all over Europe, as well as Laguna Seca.
