We are very pleased to have been given the opportunity to re-commission this beautiful little 1969 Merlyn Formula Ford. Purchased from the Karl Ritter Museum collection in Austria last month it appears to be an extremely original car. Merlyn cars were built by Colchester Racing Developments and through 68/69/70 they dominated much of the UK Formula Ford scene driven by the likes of Tim Schenken and Bryan Sharp. The 11 and 11A was a development of the ’67 Mk 10 F3 car and formed the basis of Merlyn FFs well into the ‘70s. Having come from a museum collection the condition of this car is extremely good and it should require a minimal level of re-commissioning before making its reappearance on the track. Our customer is an experienced hill climber so the car will initially be used in this discipline but he hopes to join the historic circuit scene before long. We look forward to seeing this classic racing car in action once again.
