    Famously, that car's life ended in a very fiery accident on the 1976 Welsh rally, driven by Per Inge Walfridsson.

    ....and the club still has a part of that car

    The rally at the bottom of the plaque is wrong. (Welsh 1976, not RAC 1975)
    The quoted chassis number is correct though (1513).

    I took these in the late 80's. I know they don't provide any evidence to where it is now, but I thought some of you may be interested to see them.

    Anyway,
    Definitely not the damaged CF shell. Ended up Blue.

    Yes, I've seen those, and no, that's a blue Stradale, nothing to do with the Chequered Flag.

    The remains of the 'rolled' car were never used in anger again and left the Chequered Flag in the following state:

    After the re-shelled and existing complete rally car had been sold, Don Fenwick built up a car from the remains of the (Cahal Curley Donegal) rolled car.
    All that could be used, was the floor pan. The rest of the tub was all new steel. Then the car was completed using whatever parts they had left over.
    The car was painted black and white, but without any lettering.
    It was registered on a Q plate.

    This built up car has the same chassis number stamped on its tub, as the re-shelled and surviving CF rally car.
    It was also, later, issued by the DVLC, at the behest of the subsequent owner, with the registration OYU 353R.

    (All from Don Fenwick's account in RACE & RALLY magazine.)

    This is the car that came back to life in its 1975 ex works incarnation, in Japan.

    So they are definitely two different cars.
    As I said, there's no link between the CF cars and the Scheldt and Pettet car.
    'Interesting period photos of the Scheldt and Pettet car, Andy. Thanks for posting them.
