In 1959, first owner John Ewens competed at Crystal Palace and Silverstone, before making an appearance in Whitsun Trophy at the Goodwood Members’ Meeting the following year. Soon after, it left for a Rhodesia before passing around a few other owners in South Africa. In the 1980s, the car found its way to the States where it was regularly campaigned in historic series. It’s now back in the UK following an exacting restoration by Canepa Design in California.
The Streamliner’s rarity and historical significance makes it a welcome site in the paddock, even though it didn’t actually take part in the all-Lister Scott Brown Trophy during 75MM. It has raced at both Members’ Meeting and Revival in the past.
