 DBR 1/5  
I worked and on Chassis 5 in Pretoria South Africa in the 1960's. It belonged to Mr van Tilburg who owned van Tilburg Motors the Jaguar agent there in the 60's. The car was raced at club race days at Grand Central and later at Kyalami.

Was not the DBR1/4 car run for some time in Australia and New Zeland?
Looks and sounds exhilarating, and probably drives like that too. It has a transaxle 5-speed dog-box (transaxle to improve weight distribution. In Octane Magazine's third issue the Aston is said to be a handful sometimes, because it needs to be properly throttle-tickled to take the bends. The test driver claims it would be suited for a sprint race, and a Jaguar D-type would be less demanding in an endurance race. I don't care anyway, cos if I drove them I would be too happy to be critical.
