Make Alfa Romeo
History          
Year
Long chassis car. First owner was Vincenzo Francesco Ferrario (MI 44093), it is then thought that the car was purchased by a dealer for Arthur Fox, to be raced by Brian Lewis. Rebodied and owned by Francesco Pivola in 1935, in 1936 it was sold to Mr. Scipione Farabolini who took the car to Mogadishu in Italian Somaliland (SO-3142). Graham Stevens and Roy Usher found the car in Mogadishu and got it running c1942. It was later sold to Mrs. Ellis and transported to Nairobi, from where it went to Maj. E.C.H. Owens, painted a mushy pea green. Overhauled by Frank Maschetti, who had been at the Milano factory as a mechanic and test driver, resprayed in matt green, then matt silver blue (W-2468). The car returned to England in 1953 (MXP 13) and sold on in 1964 to Guy Griffiths. Offered for sale at Brooks Auction in 1995 by Guy’s Daughter, Penny Woodley. Later owned by John Bentley.

Make Alta-Jaguar
History          
Year
Noted in Kenya in the 1950s or 60s. Red with cycle wings - Mentioned in an article in RREC Bulletin 30. Sportscar which Phil Scragg built from the first postwar GP car, GP1. It returned to the UK c1970. It was raced a few times, still as a sportscar, in the early 1990s (The Donington Collection car of the same number is a replica using some parts from the original). RPG418 originally owned by Phil Scaggs was based on GP1 the ex Abecassis GP Alta. All Altas were made to order and George Abecassis took delivery of GP1 in 1948. It made its debut in the British Empire Trophy on the Isle of Man and though it showed promising speed it retired after two laps with a broken gearbox. Abecassis crashed it in Bremgarten and it failed to finish in either of its other two races that year. He raced it only three times in 1949 and finished only once and then well off the pace. He had intended to complete a full season with the car, but the HWM project, which used Alta engines, diverted him otherwise. Later GP1 was converted into a Jaguar-engined special and its remains have
subsequently been reconstructed for the Donington Collection.

Make Chevrolet
History          
Year 1957
Manufactured in Tarrytown, N.Y. in late 1957 and imported into Kenya in November 1957. It spent it's entire first life as a company delivery truck for an outfit called Malmont Electroplating Limited. The company still exists in the  industrial area of Nairobi. Sometime around late 1976 or early 1977, someone performed an oil change and forgot to fill it up with oil again before driving it! Found by Denis Schumacher October 1989, parked beside the road in the  Nairobi industrial area up to it's hubs in dried mud with a seized engine. The oil filter was still new and hadn't had any oil in it. There was no oil in the sump either. The previous owner told me it had been sitting there in the open since the engine had seized. After 5 years of work and several shipments of parts from  the States, it was once again on the road. The truck was finished in July of 1995 and was put into the local car show, which takes place once a year at the Nairobi Race Course. This is the biggest car show in East Africa and the truck won 4th place.

Make Connaught
History          
Year 1950
Known as the Kenya Car.

Connaught is well known for the racing cars they made in the 1950s. The L2 was the first model to be sold to the public using the Lea-Francis 1,767 cc unit In 1949 Lea-Francis updated the suspension on its 14 hp model and Connaught, using the same chassis, updated the L2 into the L3. 14 of the L3 model sports car were made until Connaught started to solely make racing cars.

This Connaught L3 was the last of  just eight L2 and three L3 series sports cars built by Connaught on a modified short wheelbase Lea Francis Sports chassis, using the 1767cc twin cam Lea Francis engine that Connaught developed for the Grand Prix A Type single seater cars. . 

Unlike the other rather square shaped cars bodied for Connaught's by Leacraft, Connaught wanted a much more rounded, lightweight, sleeker, up to date and stylish body for this last car, and so Charles Miesel commissioned this one off aluminium body on a tubular frame from MetalCraft Ltd of Blyth Bridge, Staffordshire.

The car was originally bought from Connaught and taken to Kenya by a lady racing driver and was raced there for many years on what was known as the Langa Langa race track and at the Nakuru Motor Racing Circuit by Cliff Collinge amongst others in regular events organised by the East African Motor Sports Club.

Previous owner Jeremy Rodseth sold the Connaught in 1967 to Robin Houry and raced it at the Nakuru circuit. He eventually lost interest in the car and Rodseth offered to take it back, and so it then came back into his possession. Rodseth left Kenya for Australia in 1976 and sold his house and the Connaught to Peter Huth. 

The car was rediscovered in Nairobi in the late 70's by Rollo Malcolm-Green who eventually bought it and brought KBN 366 back to the UK some years later.  It eventually came into the possession of Duncan Rabagliatti via John Harper in 1986.  It was later sent to TT workshops where between 1988 and 1994 the chassis was rebuilt and some work carried out on the body. 

Clive Sherriff acquired the car in 1998, and finished the chassis restoration work and completed the body and trim. Since completion it has been in regular use on the road and various events such as the Prescott Hillclimb. Sold through Coys Auction on 11th January 2014.
