This car was originally exported to Fergus Fine Cars in New York.  Jay provided this photo of the car when owned by Dave Dexter, who had purchased it from a friend.  The car evolved into an SCCA F Prod. racer.  Dave may have also acquired a D Prod. Turner Climax in the deal.  The chassis number of the Turner Climax is unknown.

This car was previously in the Unknown Turners photo section.  These photos and the following information were found on the Internet.

This car comes with a SCCA history.  It has completed 15 races since the restoration in 1998 by New England Classics.  It features an engine with A6 cam, twin DCOE Weber's, K&N filters, Quife straight cut gears.  Accusump, dual masters with brake bias.  Also it has an onboard fire system, and original Revolution wheels.  Below is a description of the restoration:
