CS 500 (Cooper Special JAP 500cc)

An affordable way to compete with the 500 Owners Association and other historic racers at iconic venues such as Shelsley Walsh, Prescott, Loton Park, Gurston Down, Harewood etc.

The car is sold with a rebuilt 500cc JAP 4B (Alfin barrel) engine and a newly rebuilt magneto (Armoto). It runs on methanol with a total loss castor oil set up.

The carb is out of period but a correct for the period Type 27 carb is included.

Running gear is Cooper MKIV and the chassis is similar to Cooper MK6 but of unknown origin.

Currently set up with a speedway tank for hillclimbs and sprints but there is ample space in front of the engine for a bigger tank as the car was raced in the 1960’s with a Vincent twin.

The car is supplied with completed 500 Owners Association VIF form number 111 and 500 Owners Association registration plate number 053.

VSCC and MSA log books are also included.
