Featured Unipower GT

Chassis 866.5    1966  RHD

   

Built in mid-1966, this chassis was sold to a good friend of Peter Sellers, the actor famous for the Pink Panther and many other films in the 60's - 70's.

 

The car was the first to be installed with a 1275cc Cooper 'S' engine, specially tuned by Downton Engineering and producing a useful increase of power to 98 h.p.

 

The car was flown out to Seller's home in Switzerland, photographed here at the airport before being loaded for its flight, with Seller's himself photographing the car.   

 

The car would spend its life in Switzerland, despite it being built as a R.H.D version.

Featured Unipower GT Video

Owner Duncan Charlton has owned and been racing his Unipower GT in the USA for a few years now. 

Originally sold as an export to the Spanish agent in early 1967, the car competed in Spanish hill climbs, changing ownership a few times before being sold to a new owner in Sweden. 

5-years ago Duncan purchased the car and has been gradually rectifying a number of inherited handling and engine issues, resulting in a gradual improvement in his race results. Note the central gearchange, uniquely operated by a cable, since reverted back to the usual sill-mounted gearchange mechanisium. 

The video is of early races, since when many important changes have been made to the car.  Please Un-mute the video to hear the audio
