This car was built by the factory as a special light-weight racing car (GT) and shipped to South Africa for a factory driver, Ian Frazer-Jones, to race in 1960. The car was originally delivered with a 1600S motor but upon arrival in South Africa the push rod motor was replaced with a 4-cam motor from an RSK. The car has aluminum doors and deck lids, aluminum race seats, big brakes and gas tank and lightweight interior. All windows are plexiglass except for the windshield. It is one of 3 RHD GTs built in 1959. This vehicle has approximately 14,000 miles on the odometer.
