1972/3 3-litre Weslake Ford V12

9/11/2012. The Wheatcroft Collection - Donington Park - UK

Wouldn't mind one of these under the bonnet...
Actually it proved unreliable when used in the Gulf-Mirage-Weslake at Daytona in 1973 and the car retired. It also failed at the Le Mans test week-end that year. The project was shelved the whole thing ending in acrimony. The Cosworth DFV V8 proved immensley more successful.
