Lister built and raced an unpromising Climax-powered F2 car in 1957. It was sold to Gil Baird but apparently not raced by him, though the next owner, W A Jones, did get it out once or twice at 1959 British meetings.

In mitigation, I'd like to point out that the index in Sheldon is wrong though - it should say pages 182, 184 and 185, but it omits 185!

Does anyone kow if the Archie and the Listers book mentions this car at all?

They were completely different cars, the '56 model using the single-cam Climax FWB engine and the '57 model the twin-cam FPF.
Strangely however, neither car is mentioned in the works production records in the appendix.
