Automobiles Historiques is offering this Wolf-Cosworth WR1/2 for sale.
The first series of Canadian-born Austrian Walter Wolf’s eponymous Formula 1 cars was iconic. For a brand new team to win on its Grand Prix debut was sensational, but hungry South African Jody Scheckter and Hesketh graduate Dr Harvey Postlethwaite’s stunning ‘WR1’ design was a strong combination for the 1977 season. The distinctive car wowed on its launch. Postlethwaite shrink-wrapped the wide-floored sheet aluminium monocoque, Ford Cosworth V8 engine and Hewland FG400 gearbox in a deliciously curvaceous body, accentuated by one of the greatest liveries of its era, and it proved ultra-reliable.
Scheckter’s Argentinian victory was no flash in the pan, for he added Monaco – the DFV engine’s 100th win – and appropriately his patron’s Canadian round. Jody finished second in the World Championship to Ferrari’s Niki Lauda (who also triumphed thrice), single-car equipe Wolf fourth in the Constructors’ title race.
Automobiles Historiques is proud to offer chassis WR1/2, direct from long-term ownership. Scheckter drove it to second in the German GP at Hockenheim, where it also qualified on pole position, and third in Spain (photo above) and Holland. That a sister car, used for testing, graces his collection, says it all. Both WR1/2 and the spare Wolf have previously competed in the Monaco Historic Grand Prix and are eminently eligible for the 2024 edition. Both the Wolfs and a large number of spares are available as a unique opportunity to purchase as a package.
