Description:

Chassis number C9S 66 36 is a late-run Zetec powered Crosslé 9S sports racing car. The numbers on the chassis plate show that it’s a Crosslé 9S, built to the 1966 design while the number 36 means that it was the 10th 9S built, including the 4 built in 1966. Crosslé’s arcane numbering starts with the first 9S in 1966 being number 27…   C9S 66 36 was built in March 1999 for Richard Parsons, racer and serial Northern Ireland Hillclimb Champion. In April 2006 it changed hands and again in December 2007. The present and fourth owner bought the car in November 2013 and has competed in hillclimbs over the last 8 years, principally Prescott and Shelsley Walsh.

The basic 9S specification can be found at https://crossle.co.uk/9SSportscar.html but in summary car C 9S 66 36 has:

·         Dunnell prepared and sealed Ford Zetec 2 litre twin cam engine on Webers. Approximately 5 hours use at racing speeds with the current owner from late 2013 to date. 

·         Hewland Mark 9 5-speed gearbox with a range of spare ratios. Currently geared for hillclimbing.

·         Lightweight fibreglass body on tubular steel spaceframe. Total weight 562kg.

·         Endurance fuel tank

·         Lifeline Zero 360 Fire Marshall 2.25kg NOVEC fitted June 2021.

·         New 7.0/21-13, 9.2/22-13 Avon A15 with historic tread pattern “all-weather” cut slicks fitted June 2021 on Compomotive wheels.

·         Spare set of Compomotive front and rear wheels with aged Dunlop SP Sports, plus 2 more Compomotive 9-inch rear wheels with aged Avon CR500s.

·         Miscellaneous used spares including engine block, inner wheel-arch liner guards, drive shaft

·         The 6-point harness became time expired on 30 December 2021, though remains perfectly serviceable.

·         There’s a comprehensive file produced by Crosslé giving details of the original build in March 1999 together with bundles of bills from 2006 to date.

·         Spare parts (and advice) are readily available from the factory at Rory's Wood, Holywood,
Northern Ireland.

·         I’m aware of a used spare rear body section that could be available by separate negotiation.

In April 2014, Sean McClurg made a number of changes to set the car up for hillclimbing, principally changing the gearing, brakepads, springing and ride height. These changes transformed the car for hillclimbing, making it more compliant and benign; the changes were meticulously documented and can be simply reversed to restore circuit race settings.

The reason for sale is anno domini and associated health. This car is competitively priced and ready to go immediately for track day use and just a new harness for competition use.
