All the drawings and information I have, including information on where to get things hand made. spun etc like the trumpets. Supplied are all the specialist drills used to manufacture and a host of other parts that I had made in bulk due to costings, which will have been enough to make 20/30 DCO 3 recreations in total, as this was the original business model. Pics 3, 8 & 10
Due to knowing Dave of DWR a number of discussions were held about the project. His input was invaluable and a number of "modern" updates/tweaks were into in to consideration to make these more adaptable than the original DCO3's. I am happy to discuss this with a person who is very kee to purchase only.
I MIGHT CONSIDER SELLING SEPARATELY BUT WOULD PREFER TO SELL IT ALL AS A JOB LOT.
How I can prove this is legitimate and genuine.
My Grandfather was Gordon Unsworth famously know for building TATTY TURNER and running team turner, so you could say it's in my blood. He owned the first motor accessory shop in Derby in the 60's after running another successful business with Alan Smith of Alan Smith Racing 1977Ltd importing all kinds of cars including ISO Grifo etc.
He was a dealer for all carburettors manufactures, Leyland ST dealer etc. After my father split from Gordons daughter Lesley, he set up Derby Auto Accessories and Tuning Ltd, and become synonymous with tuning. Sadly after Gordon's sudden death took over the dealership for all carburettors including Weber.
Brought up with racing and rallying and for many years ran all the rolling road tuning at the family workshop. After the family decide to move away from motorsport due to dads retirement.
Now just working on classics etc and for some very influential and famous people, I found my self at the inaugural Grand Prix de Monaco Histoique running a 57' 250TR & 250F Piccolo, then Goodwood with Graham Hills 64' 250GTO a 63' for spares and the 57' 250TR. I have been blessed to work on so many of these iconic vehicles I lose count, O and there was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
I decide to remain in classic and historic refurbishing carbs and did 100's for people all around the world inc and for BJ AC/DC fam. I managed to regain the Weber dealership and retained after much persuasion the Weber dealership in Derby although not supplying to the public.
I was approached by a one of may Aston Martin rebuilders customers about manufacturing a recreation of the DCO3 sand cast. After many hours spent and cost this person vanished, luckily I had everything except the cast box which I decided to pay for at much expense. Then I was sidetracked into and new engineering project which saw me move totally away from cars.
So now I have decided to give someone the chance to own this what I believe to be a piece of history and make some money from, If you are reading this you know that an original pair are VERY RARE and fetch upwards of £15/20k + I have lots of pics and happy to answer any questions.
Payment will be deposit within 1 hour of the listing ending which will be 5% of the total the price and the rest by bank transfer. Shipping will be tracked signed and fully insured at your expense but have put £500 in the shipping to be sure. Most carriers charge £15ish for £7000 of cover, it will be the weight of them all that will be expensive.
