Cooper T51 (1959)



Cooper T51 chassis number FII/28/59 was entered into the Cooper Car Company records as 1959 model 1500cc Mk1V Formula II & was sold in October 1959 to John Guthrie owner of SA Power Tool & Equipment Co based in Rhodesia. The car was fitted with FPF Coventry Climax engine.

The car was raced under the Ecurie Rhodes banner at the 1961 & 1962 South African Grand prix. 1962 was the end of international competition for the Guthrie 51.

In 1987 the car was repatriated to the UK, sold & restored to pre'61 Grand Prix form, fitted with a 2 litre Climax engine.

The car was raced with great sucess until 1996 & then sold to a french owner who continued to race the car with the HGPCA until an accident in 2004. The car was then repaired to a high spec both mechanially & cosmetically until it was sold to the cars current owner.
