Piper retained engine 0818 and gearbox. In the '70's Piper sold the original engine 0818 to Stefan Sklenar of Austria who re-sold engine 0818 to Paul Schouwenburg. He used the engine for 250 LM 5899 but later sold it to Violati. In 1977 a brand new car 0818 was constructed by Mike Ostroumoff at Redditch. Brand new frame and new body by Wakefields of Byfleet.
