1967 Brabham BT21-16 AM180. An immaculate example of a correct 1967 Brabham BT21. MWE race 1.6L Lotus Ford Twin-Cam engine giving 200+ horsepower. This car has been correctly set up, it is light, fast and beautiful. It is fully track ready with no excuses. The BT21 is one of the easiest driving Brabham’s of the era. It has a current SVRA logbook, and is Monoposto Club legal. This car has been completely restored by Brabham specialist Sasco Sport and was completed in detail to be competitive. It is one of the finest BT21’s available.

In 1989 I originally purchased this car in the UK with Chassis plate BT21-16 and with a frame stamping AM180. I have diligently researched and recorded the above history with great help from Jim Gleve of MRE in UK. And from Max Batton a previous owner. I do not claim absolute accuracy, only this is a summation of the history available attached to this Chassis and Arch Motors frame stamping numbers. The original purchase agreement of sale in 1989 is available and will be supplied with the car.
