Chassis: 001
The first of two Mk 5 Sadlers built, this is believed to be the sole survivor after a garage fire destroyed the second chassis. In pieces and without a body, it was retrieved from a garage in Toronto in the early 1970s by Canadian enthusiast Jack Boxstrom. He spent the next two decades on a very lengthy restoration. The work was finally completed in 1992 and Brian Redman debuted the restored Sadler during the Mosport Vintage Festival, scoring a victory at last for the mid-engined Sadler.

Boxstrom retained the car for a further two decades, racing it at many of the most prominent historic events in North America, including the Monterey Historics. The only Sadler Mk 5 currently in existence was recently acquired by a British enthusiast, who in the past few years had raced one of the front-engined Sadlers in his trademark spectacular style. We captured the Mk 5 in what may very well be its first European appearance during the 2012 Goodwood Press Day. Accordingly, we expect the blisteringly quick machine to star during at least one of Goodwood's fabulous events later in the year.
