From the CCK collection we have another very rare opportunity. Jim Russell’s championship winning Cooper 500 is coming to market. This car was driven by Jim throughout 1956 and 1957 Formula 3 championships. It has a very well documented history including letters from Jim Russell and even an issue of Autosport from 1957 where Jim features on the cover driving the Cooper to victory in the 100 mile race at Silverstone. In 1956 and 57 Jim scored sixteen wins, seven 2nd and 3rd place finish in the car at circuits including Goodwood, Brands Hatch, Snetterton and Mallory Park. After a sympathetic restoration carried out in 1990 this Cooper 500 is presented in beautiful condition, even retaining it’s original Steve Lancefield built Manx Norton “double knocker” engine.
If you are interested in owning one of the most successful Cooper 500’s in history then please contact Daniel for more information. Viewing can be arranged at our premises in East Sussex.
