We just finished (again) the restoration of March 711/006 driven by Ronnie Peterson. This is the car that came in 2nd at Monza by .001s, the closest finish in F1 history! I am just testing the waters to see if anybody is interested in this sort of thing. I would be happy to post pics (once i figure out how) and answer any questions regarding this car. Thanks for reading...

I think you should post this in the For sale thread. Good luck with the sale. :)

Oops, my intentions must not have been well presented. The car isn't for sale, we are currently running it on the vintage racing circuit. It's possible that we may take it to Monaco this year if there is sufficient interest in this car. My intent was to see if any of the readers were interested in this car from a restoration standpoint and would possibly like some pictures.

I met a gentleman last year, who owns and drives a March 762. He works with the company I am employed by, and was nice enough to invite me to the Vintage Festival at R.A. I had a great time, helped buckle him up, tighten bolts and clean the car. I also saw Brambilla's 761! March was a fantastic mark! I would love to see your pics. Especially one of Ronnie's!! IMHO , your March is very high on the list of, "Most important F1 cars". Wonderful undertaking!!
P.S. If you need an extra hand ,and you come to R.A. I'm your guy! :up: ;)
Cheers

I think the answer to the last question is a resounding "yes".

Well . . .

Here are three that showed up a few days ago on alt binaries.pictures.autos. I have no idea where, when, or by whom. Files are 130-170K in size.

How coincidental... :cool:


TC,

Sorry I missed you at the HSR-West Meet at PIR. A very fine restoration on an interesting car.

I just happened to snap a couple of pictures when I was walking around talking to folks.

These images could not be better timed! I know it is a pathetic comparison but I have just started to restore a Scalextric March 711.

The photographs showing the position of the decals etc on these pictures are just what I need.

I shall be selling the model once it is completed.

Wonderful pictures!

I'm just in awe of people who have the skill, patience and imagination to produce scenes like those!

Love the door handle!

Edit - And I've just noticed the period lap timers on the pit counter - clearly, the more you look, the more you see...
