Chassis: 36-76-04
Completed early in 1976, this B36 was delivered to Fred Stalder's Racing Organisation Course (ROC). At the team's facility in Le Bouchillons, the car was fitted with the ROC-tuned Chrysler-Simca four-cylinder engine. Chassis 36-76-04 was then extensively raced by the team well into the 1980s, appearing in the 24 Hours of Le Mans five times. At its final Le Mans outing, in 1980, it was driven to a class win, finishing 17th overall. In 1982, it won the French Group 6 Championship. Subsequent owner, Jean-Claude Ferrarin, fitted the car with a BMW four-cylinder engine, and in this guise it won the French Group 6 Championship again in 1984. Ahead of the following season, it was fitted with the bodywork from the Sthemo Group C car and it was converted to C2 specifications. Rebadged as the Isolia, it was then campaigned until 1986 first with a BMW engine and then powered by a Cosworth DFV engine.

Following, its final outing, in August of 1986, the car's 11-season, contemporary career finally came to an end. In 2007, the much raced machine was acquired from Ferrarin by Jean-Marie Belleteste. He had it restored by marque expert Vin Malkie to its original Chevron B36 specification. It was fitted with a more readily available and competitive Ford Cosworth BDG engine. Early in 2009, the restored B36 joined the stable of Belgian historic racer Marc Devis, who campaigned it briefly that season, before selling it on to a Scottish collector. He raced the car extensively in the Classic Endurance Racing series, and in 2014, in the hands of ace racer Martin O'Connell, it won the P2 championship.
