1969 Brabham BT-29 Formula B
Chassis number BT29-24. Same owner for over 30 years. History known back to 1987, when the car was purchased from Sy Mooreland with a twin cam engine. In storage from 1987 until 2009 when restoration started. Restoration completed and track tested in June, 2019.
Formula B configuration with wing and non-wing set up. Jim Groom 180 h.p. twin cam engine with test time only. Fresh rebuild on Hewland FT-200 gearbox.
The Brabham turned low 1.40 second laps during its initial shakedown test at Sonoma Raceway in June. That is quick enough to win in Formula B. It can be quicker with more testing and adjusting.
The car does have some stress cracks in the fiberglass. They are on the top center, the left side below the mirror, and on the left side where the upper body meets the lower body. We did our best to photograph them for you.
We find that BT29 Brabhams are among the best, if not the best, car to win in Formula B. If you are running a Formula Ford, this is the classic next step, with more power, more grip, yet wonderful, predictable handing. The BT29’s are not as available as they once were, and when they are, they are generally more expensive than the one we have offered here, especially in this condition.
