Post the read up in side plsssssssssssssss....:tup:
Hey NoJive55, full feature on Leon's '55 runs to 4 full pages & I dont think this thread is the right place for it so here is the spec page.
It was an awsome sight on the circuit & would cream the Mini's/Cortina's etc on the straights then have to back off for the corners letting them all catch up again! Limiting factor was the period Dunlop rubber that it had to run by all accounts.
another DC import
(I dont think this thread is the right place for it ?)
post away guys the more pictures and info the more there is to read and chat about,luv the write up on Leon Coles 55.
Good memory Battersea Boys ! Don't know where it came from I will ask, guess Leon would have been about 20 when he bought it. He did some run what you brungs then I think a lifter broke up or the camshaft grenaded & the rebuild to its current guise came from that.
Will scan the whole article tomorrow if no one objects then.
We sold it to a guy named Julian Dyer - I believe Leon got it from him... I don't think we bought it back, it was up in Hertfordshire.
I'm racking my brains to think where we found it... Actually we got it for the guy that ended up with Halls' black '55... He thought it needed to much work if memory serves!
Now as promised here are scans of the first 3 pages to the Leon Cole '55 article. Enjoy.
