I suspect you/ he may be aware of it already, but www.formula2.net has all the results for major F2 races around this time which should be of some use for research of the three F2 cars. For some reason, 1972 includes chassis references, but 1973 does not.

I have only had a cursory glance, but there are certainly several references to BT38/ 15 when driven by Bob Wollek.

Hope this helps in some way, and good luck with your search.
