Merlyn Mk6A Sports Racer
Ex-Tony Sargeant 1965 Autosport Championship Winner. Chassis 68RS
Chassis number 68RS
Ex-Jersey Racing Partnership car raced by Tony Sargeant. Documented 1965 U.K. championship winning history. Featured in Autosport Magazine in 1965. Raced in U.S. historic racing since 1987, including the Monterey Historics. Comes with 2012 FIA HTP papers, and HSCC Vehicle Identity papers.
The Merlyn was the subject of a frame-up restoration in 2009-2010, including a new chrome moly frame. The original frame will come with the car. The car still retains its original chassis tag.
There are five weekends (approximately 6-8 hours) on the Merlyn’s 1600 c.c. Loyning dry sump Lotus Twin Cam. 45 DCOE Webers. Hewland Mk6 five speed gearbox.
Panasport wheels, and Koni shocks. All period correct Smiths gauges. Belts good to 2025.
Spares include some original wheels and a passenger seat with restraints.
The Merlyn has had very little track time in the last 10 years.
For additional information and photos of this Merlyn please see the prior Petrolicious listing. That listing was from several years ago when the car was priced at over $110,000. Since then the car has only raced a couple of times. We are currently awaiting updated photos to show the car in its current condition. We expect those to reflect the car in virtually the same condition as that is what the owner (whom we have known for many years) has represented, and the car has been pro-maintained throughout.
The bottom line is that you can now get the same Merlyn for just $79,000. This is the bottom of the market for an authentic under 2 liter sports racer with period championship history, original AND replacement chassis, original chassis tag, period documentation, and full ownership history. The owner is thinning the herd, and the next owner will be the beneficiary.
