    Well, the blue Lenham is probably a real one too then. But what is their definition of genuine? He might mean that the project in the advertisement is 100% correct (having all the period bits and pieces, even the Lotus Twin Cam), unlike many of its relatives, which have most likely been equipped with different engines (the blue one has a Ford if I'm not mistaken) and other modern gizmoes. I would be surprised to learn that even unknown, and in fact not historically important Lenhams were replicated. The best thing I could do is try to find some period data of the Lenham cars to dispel all mysteries

    Lenham Links

    Hi,
    I was also trying to find out the origins of that blue Lenham. Beautiful car!

    Anyway, there are several pics of it at http://gallery.UKMotorsportPics.com. Here is one good shot (http://gallery.ukmotorsportpics.com/p18307346.html). You can almost read the Lenham logo on the front.

    Most of the pics have the Lenham in the background, but if you contact Glenn Summerbell he says he has lots of pics that aren't on the website.

    There is also a Lenham GT for sale at http://homepage.mac.com/foxmotorsport/PhotoAlbum27.html. I can't tell if it is still for sale and I can't say if it is "genuine" or not, but a genuine one would be really really rare and even the non-genuines are pretty cool.

    Happy Trails

    It was a Group 6 car that had a Ford Cosworth FVC engine (4-cyl. 1,8 l) and was entered by French mechanic Josť Thibault, who drove it with other French drivers :Hubert and Lateste. The car retired after 14 hours due to an accident. No photos yet but I keep looking.

    Edit: A photo.

    But my guess is you're looking for more specific info, like what chassis it was based on (Darnval or a Darnval-modified Lenham? LM1? LM2? LM3?) etc.? That I don't know, but one thing about this car is certain - the body was hideous

    It's not denial. I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

    Ok thanks a lot but i was looking for other pics of this car. Jose Thibault was a mecanic in Chateauroux. I am in touch with Vincent Mausset from Darnval (he was the M of LM).
    2 Lenham entered Le Mans but did not race :
    In 1970 with Hurst and Calcult and in 72 (the LM3 Darnval was a true Lenham unmodified by Darnval except the sticker !)

    I think the ugly one is the one from 70 with another body.

    Do you know anything else about Roger Hurst, who died a couple yera ago, or about a Lenham register ?

    I remember that Hurst's family wanted to create a Lenham Hurst registry after his death, but I guess they haven't able to do it yet. At least I can't find one. (There was also a contact person named and a phone number).

    Why are you that interested in Lenhams?

    My quest is about Lenham's cars in Le Mans...
    I think nobody knows, that the Darnval LM3 was a Lenham without any modification; and nobody knows (even in UK) where the 76 Lenham is comming from !

    Thanks for everything

    No I do not know about that particular one.
    But I am looking for all the info I can about the Hurst Gt and Darnval because I am the happy owner of the only car the built for road use. It has exactly the same design but you lift up the whole roof to get in and it runs a Lotus Twin cam and what is most intresting is that it was built for the French market so it is left hand drive. If somebody out there knows something about this car please let me know.

    Would you be so kind to post a photograph of your car? That way we can see what type we are exactly dealing with.

    one more, as shot during the 2006 Silverstone Historics. (The blue coupe was also present).
    Apart from the winglets on the nose the car looks very similar to the one shown in #13.
