8305KV

Post by rje » Mon Nov 02, 2015 10:16 am

I read today that 8305KV (Rosemary's Tulip Winning Works Car in 1965) will be at the NEC in November, does anyone know if that is correct?

Does anyone know who has rebuilt the car or have any info on it? My understanding from all the info I have gathered would suggest a miracle has taken place.

From a historical perspective, for Imp Club members at least, 8305KV is a very important car. Along with 7742KV it would be the only one of the original batch of works rally cars that still exists (4527 was written off in 1964 and 4525/4526 in 1967). I have what I think is a complete list of team cars now and photos of most of them. I am still in process (long way to go) of compiling a list of the events on which they were used and what happened to them after the works sold them on (Richard Sozanski has been very helpful to me with this - thank you Richard). I would be keen to contact the current owner of 8305 and get some photos, can anyone help me with this? Thanks. John
