Crazy days of sheer cubic inches, innovation, extreme horsepower & guts. McLaren ruled the series in the late 60’s and early 70’s and this gorgeous car, the mighty M8F, was the last version that dominated Can-Am for McLaren.
Chassis M8F 5-72, One of only 9 client cars constructed, was campaigned by Warren Agor in the ’72/73/74 series and while never on the podium, it was never crashed…a fate most cannot claim.
- 1972 McLaren M8F 5-72, constructed by Trojan
- Raced in the early 1970’s by Warren Agor and Larry Hunt, as per SCCA log book that’s with the car
- Years later, fully restored by Gordon Meffert and painted in McLaren “Denny Hulme” livery to honor the world champ and Hulme drove it in the Chicago Historics, July ’92
- Chronicled in the Peter Egan, Road and Track article, “Not so Distant Thunder”, January 1993
- 8 liter big block Chevy with fuel injection. Engine recently rebuilt by Ed Pink Racing Engines and dyno’d at 702HP @6,500RPM
- When I started it, it scared the neighbors for blocks!
- $475,000 (trades considered and sold on bill of sale only)
