tec mec f1 1960 by James Allington
it was a study only,i think.
Thanks for the answers for the Rex Burnett car
I was trying to put together a book on the history of hot rodding in cutaways, and have a bit over 400 illustrations that fit the mold. Along with the illustrations, I have scans of all the articles that went along with it, so the Rex Burnett stuff is all sitting here on my Computer.
As for your Tec-Mec, I cannot say the same. Tec-Mec is short for Studio Tecnica Meccanica, a short-term F1 constructor out of Italy. It was founded in 1958 by Valerio Colotti, formerly of Maserati, and ended up running an updated version of the Maserati 250F called the F415. The team was financed by Lloyd Casner of Camoradi International, which sounds familiar but i cannot tell you why.
They ended up actually getting into the 1959 US Grand Prix, lasting for six laps with driver Fritz d'Orey in the seat ... and I have never heard of him.
Tec-Mec was sold by Colotti at the end of '59, and the company went on to produce cars for Fromula Junior.
Hope that pulls a bit together, as I found this new F1 illustration from Allington to be quite an interesting addition. Thank-you for posting this one.
Any other unknown Allington pieces floating around out there? Out of curiosity, where was this one published?
