1972 Mallock Mk 15 Sports/racer
Click to enlarge
A sensational historic racing car....really (from a decade of experience) the best bang for the buck.
A Mallock? One of the longest continuous production marques of racing cars in the world. Since 1959 and still in business. Remarkably, virtually every part is available and the works states a two week wait for any body panel.
Best described as a Lotus Suoer 7 on steroids. Tubular space frame chassis of advanced design, 1700cc Cosworth, dry sump, steel rods, forged pistons, gas flowed head, dry sump, balanced, race cam, twin 45 DCOE Webers, Ford 2000E close ratio trans, DeDion rear suspension, four wheel disc brakes, 9" front and 11" rear wheels with Avon racing rubber, fuel cell, fire system, a sophisticated, lightweight very very fast racer.
Last year, at the inaugural Legends event at Circuit Tremblant, my own less sophisticated Mallock Mk XIB (with a solid back axle) ran with the Cam Am cars.....mid engined, 450+hp V8s, in their day the worlds fastest sports cars....and finished 2nd in the qualifying race and 3rd in the feature race, a second behind a Lola T70 Spyder and not that far behind the winning McLaren. Never lapped in a long 17 lap race. And I have raced against this particular Mallock (the one for sale) and found it to be roughly equal in performance to my one car)
THAT is performance. Add reliability, simplicity of service, and low cost of operation, what can compare?
Our car's engine was just completely overhauled, car set up, very good alloy body, recently painted wings and nose, and finished extensive improvements: revised and improved roll bar struts, alloy covering, all new dashboard with revised gauges, lights, and switches, a brand new set of Avon intermediate racing tires (tires, shipping, mounting and balaicng....over $1,500), missing nothing, ready to race VERY competitively.
A rare opportunity to purchase one of the country's best historic race cars at a bargain price. And trades are certainly...considered.
