1953 Connaught AL10 Historic Grand Prix Race Car:

Driven in period by such legends as Roy Salvadori, John Coombs, Kenneth McAlpine, Ron Flockhart and Bill Whitehouse, the latter achieving more success with the car than when in ‘works’ hands.

This car was featured on the front cover of Motorsport and in an article by Martin Brundle, who borrowed the car for their ‘Millennium Edition’ when they tested a Grand Prix car from each of the decades from 1950 up to 2000.

In 1954 the car was sold into private hands and has only had a total of 6 owners in its 58 years.
