The black and white picture attached to this ad shows John Cooper, the designers and driver during this T83’s first test. It’s also mentioned in some detail in Doug Nye’s Cooper book.

Took part in the 1967 Macau GP with a development Cosworth SCB engine installed, and claimed pole position, but did not finish the race after a rear wheel came lose!

Fully restored by Roach Manufacturing in 2016. Fitted with a Cosworth 1000cc screamer engine and the correct Hewland Gearbox with all new safety equipment, belts extinguisher system etc.
