Just a very quick run down of what I have been able to find out (MSA did not keep very good files over 10 years ago).

The car assembled at Collins Cars, Pontrilas who at that time were running the Toyota UK cars for Dai Llewellin. It was built as an historic stage rally car and to comply with FIA and MSA regulations of the period. The car was first registered in December 1965 and then fell into both sets of rules, as the FIA cut off date for the early cars was 31 December 1965 with the HRCR/ MSA being later - 31st December, 1967 ! Not something that most people would remember.
The first event after its build was at Pembrey and it had teething problems with the fuel system, but subsequently the car had several good results - including 6th. overall on the first historic forest rally for historics - the Pines Rally on Exmoor and Rally Britannia /Historic RAC Rally in November 1992 but to name a couple of races. It was a well known car and won high number of rally’s and high number of over all wins covering many years. Last seen as a zero car in 2004 (pic in add).

Just some of the race history,

The engine is a PreXFlow with BIG VALVES Head, blue-print,twin 40's (18's of MK1 Louts), lightened and balanced with competition clutch, Quaife close ratio box, LSD. The list goes on.

I have not listed everything as I believe this is a car you need to see or call me for a talk about.
