1970 Coldwell C14 Group 6 Sports prototype

RM Sotherby's


Eligible for HSCC Thunder Sports, Masters Historic Sportscars and Peter Auto CER events. Will sell complete and ready to race or as a roller without the FVC engine.

Chassis number C14/005/70  is one of a small number of Group 6 Sports Prototypes constructed in 1970 by Bill Needhams Coldwell Engineering in Sheffield UK. The car has a short chain of ownership from new in 1970. Sold by Bill Needham to Herbert Tulodzieki (Austria) and subsequently sold to Peter Maurer (Germany) and Fred Laufer (Germany). Bought in 2001 by Lorraine Gathercole and then raced by LG and Dave Gathercole in Martini Trophy (HSCC) and Master Historic Sports Car Racing with great results including a Masters outright win. Purchased by Martyn Donn in 2016 and raced in CER, Masters and HSCC Pre 80’s and Thunder Sports.

Fitted with a Gathercole FVC with around 5 hours running since the last full rebuild. I ran it in Masters Historic Sportscars, Peter Auto CER and in the last few years HSCC Thunder Sports. A fast car on similar pace with B19 and priced to sell. Recent races at Silverstone Classic and Gold Cup with good results, it was on similar pace to B19 driven by Dean Forward at Oulton and finished 3rd overall:
