Frazer Nash boss HJ ‘Aldy’ Aldington and Norman Culpan’s remarkable third place in the 1949 Le Mans 24 Hours driving a prototype High Speed model was the zenith of the fabled British marque’s competition history. Beaten only by an exotic V12 Ferrari 166 MM and a big Delage, the success spawned a production run of [renamed] Le Mans Replicas at AFN Limited’s Falcon Works in Isleworth. Evolved from BMW’s pre-war 1971cc six-cylinder OHV power units, built to FN specification by the Bristol Aeroplane Company, the triple Solex-carburetted engines endowed the charismatic cycle-winged cars with pep to match their sharp handling.
Frazer Nash’s silver 1950 Earls Court [London] Show car, this example was supplied to Swedish Bristol agent Hans Ostermann. Second owner Sam Gillberg raced it on circuits – and ice! – eighth in the ’53 Caen GP sportscar event his highlight. Acquired in ’59 by Peter Lindkvist, who repainted it green, this well-documented car was repatriated from Sweden to England in ’86 by Frank Sytner, who took it on the Mille Miglia retrospective. Cherished in one family ownership since ’97, this superb Le Mans Rep, a class and overall handicap classification winner on the 1999 Tour de France Automobile, has also competed at the Le Mans Classic and GP de Monaco Historique.
