- 'Prototype' front engined Formula Junior race car built by Phillipe Faure in Boulogne-sur-Mer in 1959.
- The chassis is based on a Bialbero Stanguellini Barchetta, modified in the EFAC workshops.
- Similar to a regular Stanguellini however with a longer wheelbase, lower profile and with a sleeker body, giving the car a distinctive look, similar to a Maserati 250F.
- The original engine based on Fiat and Simca components was fitted with twin Weber carburettors. Suspension parts and brakes 'borrowed' from Dauphin and Peugeot.
- Car was track tested by French newspaper L'Equipe in 1959, the test driver reported 'superb road holding, acceleration and a top speed of around 200km/h.
- Very little known about the early race history but the car was sold to a US lawyer based in Sacramento, California in 1989.
- The new owner commissioned a ground up (and costly) restoration and on completion, the car was raced in the 1996 Monterey Historics, winning it's class. The following day the car was entered in the concours d'Elegance at Pebble Beach, taking third in class.
- Owned by me since 2011 as part of a collection.
- Raced in FJ series 2012, winning front engined Class A Championship, competed in FJ series in 2013, 4th in class.
- Entries in 2012 Revival, and 2014 Members Meeting.
- Invited to 2023 Members Meeting.
- This car has just undergone race preparation for 2023 by David Abbott, to include new belts and fire extinguisher system, and is ready to go. Setford Fiat currently fitted, also comes with fully rebuilt original Fiat/Simca engine.
- HTP valid to 31/12/2027.
- An exciting opportunity to acquire one of the prettiest front engined FJ cars in the paddock.
