Lot 425: Vixen VB4 Formula 4

The Beaulieu Sale, Bonhams (7 September 2013)

Restored between 2005 and 2006, this historic Vixen VB4 Formula 4 single-seater has been used very successfully for hill climbs and sprints, achieving many class wins and receiving the scrutineers' award for 'Best Prepared Competition Car' on several occasions. The Vixen has undergone a total rebuild and restoration by specialists using many new and rebuilt parts, and comes with documented account of the work done and parts used. A fresh 1,040cc full race Hillman Imp engine by Dennis Allt of Carter Engines fame has just been installed. Not used since its installation in April 2013, this unit incorporates new pistons, liners, valves, bearings and an R20 camshaft, etc and is fitted with new twin Weber 40DCOE carburettors. Built by Dave Weedon, the four-speed close-ratio transaxle houses a Trans X limited-slip differential and an AP racing clutch. Period pattern-cut slicks are mounted on Compomotive 3-piece rims and the car also comes with a set of unused wets on similar rims. A spare set of tyres is included also. This car has been maintained to the highest standard and is presented in immaculate condition. It comes complete with a covered four-wheel trailer fitted with all new running and towing gear together with a remote mover for ease of manoeuvring.
