1950 Frazer Nash Le Mans Replica

Being a show car, it was to a high specification, with a flurry of chromed parts including the exhaust pipes, headlamps, front wishbones and wing supports. Other details included Newton telescopic front shock absorbers, Bristol rear shock absorbers, a 3.9 ratio rear axle in a steel housing, along with light alloy brake drums and back plates. Amongst the other exhibitors at the show were Rootes, Allard, Jaguar and Rolls-Royce. Perhaps it was all the extra chrome that caught the eye of aspiring racer Lawrence ‘Larry’ Kulok, who bought the car off the stand (later, Larry went onto win Sebring in another Frazer Nash in 1952). From this point forward, 421/100/110 had a distinguished racing history in the USA.

Larry was soon in the thick of it, competing at Westhampton only a month later, Bridgehampton in June and New Jersey in July, winning three races. His final outing in 421/100/110 was at Watkins Glen in September.
