Chassis: B19-71-9
Built for loyal Chevron racer John Lepp with a centrally mounted gear lever. After Lepp campaigned the car in the European Championship, he sold the car to James Gray. He raced the car extensively in 1972. Later in the decade it was converted to a Hillman Imp silhouette saloon racer, nicknamed 'Chimp' (Chevron Imp). It eventually ended up in the hands of Vin Malkie, who restored it to full B19 specification. Today the car is in British hands and sports the period correct John Lepp livery. For racing purposes a slightly larger Cosworth YBM engine is fitted instead of the original Cosworth FVC. It is seen here at the Classic Endurace Racing events at Silverstone in 2007 and Monza in 2008.
