It was entered for Le Mans, as a works car in 1959, but never took part. It was fitted with one of the early 1500 FWB engines from new. After Le Mans, it went straight to Canada, where it has spent its life.
Four ago I brought it back to France for its current owner, who raced it at Le Mans Classic in 2016. For this race it was fitted with a full race FWA, built by us, and went well.
It is currently being resprayed green,so the photographs here are from Le Mans Classic in 2016.
This is probably the only 17 which retains its strut front suspension. This was slightly modified in Canada and seems to work well.
The pictures of the car in green are as it is now, freshly resprayed. It should be back in the UK by mid December, for detail finishing and viewing
