Car Type:Single Seater
We have the pleasure to offer this genuine and impeccable 1978 March 782-22 for sale.
The March 782 is without doubt the best F2 car ever produced, straightforward and easy to run, it was no surprise demand for the car was huge. March had used the same basic chassis for all their single seater designs since the 1971 F2 712M, but for 1978 produced a slimmer monocoque for the 782 in which Bruno Giacomelli won the 1978 European F2 championship. Including the prototype and the show car built for Polifac, 30 March 782s were built in total with this particular car, chassis 782/22 being delivered new in April ’78 to Markus Hotz of HORAG, the Swiss March importer who prepared the car for Fredy Lienhart, his partner in Lista Racing. 782-22 continued to race successfully in Switzerland and abroad until the early 80ies.
A full race history comes with the car and is available upon request. The ownership history of 782-22 is continuous from day 1 up to the current owner.
Just recently fully gone through and checked-over, 782-22 is equipped with a freshly rebuild, zero km HART 2 litre engine, and is sold in Brian Henton’s “F&S Properties” livery. It comes with a full history file and 2018 FIA HTP papers. In addition, the car comes with good spares which includes 2 new wheel sets and miscellaneous running spares.
Needless to say that this genuine March 782 is ready to be a front running car – as it was in-period – in the 2018 HSCC’s F2 championship or P.Peter’s new F2 race series.
The full race and ownership history of the car is available upon request. Please contact us.
