Built in mid 1966, this road spec chassis was built towards the end of 1966 and was to become the works demonstration car that would appear in many magazine articles and road-tests of that period.
Fitted with a 998cc Cooper engine, as UPD had thought that this would be the most popular choice of customers, it was the very first production car fitted with sliding door windows. The earlier cars being retro fitted with new doors and sliding windows due to issues with the original wind-up windows not sealing well enough.
The car was fitted with all the factory options available at that time and was subject to additional fitment as time went on. Remaining with the factory until its closure in late 1969, the car was sold to the factory's Storeman who then sold it on to the then Unipower agent, Monty & Ward Motors in Kent in 1971.
1969 Road car chassis UWF 1012 - LTM 80G
Owned in the 80's by the well known motoring writer, Peter Filby, this 1969 road car chassis has been through many owners, being heavily modified along the way, before its current owners rebuilt the car, retaining its unique wide wheel arches and now running the car in a few hill climbs and demo events.

In 2013/14 chassis # 766.2 had undergone its first comprehensive strip down and rebuild for the first time since it was last raced by the factory team in 1969.
This video is of the shakedown test carried out in April 2014 (track-day rules applied on overtaking) at the famous Goodwood race track in Sussex, England driven by its owner Gerry Hulford. The Jaguar on track had a 5ltr supercharged engine of 500hp and the Aston was the latest Vantage V8 at the time.
The car was running a new setup and tyres, so the on-track pace was exploratory whilst slowly building pace, to determine if all was well with the car's mechanicals. All was well !. The latest changes on its setup had improved its handling considerably. These settings and the history of this very successful race car are published in the new Book on the history of the Unipower GT marque which can be purchased through the Shop on this website.
