I have a 1969/70 British 2 car race car transporter built in England on a British Ford 56 Passenger bus chassis, left hand drive. I am trying to document it's history. I have been told that it was built in 1969 for March Engineering Formula 2 Racing Team by Ford Motor Co. Ltd. However I have not been able to substantiate that information. I believe that the original vehicle was either red or blue, maybe with yellow trim.

This is all of the information that I have on this vehicle.

I sure hope someone remembers this vehicle. I'm beginning to think that it never existed!

Thanks...Bill Allen

Well, Bill, it certainly looks like the March transporter to me! If not, it's just like it...

I'll try and sort a pic out in due course.

Hey Bill,

Andy Gilberg (Marchives.com) here. Where could a March fanatic take a closer look at your magic bus? Will it be attending any races?
