FORMULA 3 (500) Racing Car
Believed to date from sometime in the 1950’s, this car was originally built with a single cylinder motorcycle engine of 500cc, such as a Manx Norton. It would have been used in Formula 500, later known as Formula 3.
The maker of this car is currently unknown. However a clue to its history might be the name ” Vomper ” on the side, which has been painted over at a later date. There is no engine or gearbox present, but there is an oil tank present.
