Year   Lyle 4600 - 350 Chev V8, built by Lyle Matthews of Salisbury in the 1970s. Space frame with a surtees rear end. Winner of the Bulawayo 3-hour Endurance race on three occasions, held the Whitney Straight fastest lap at Donnybrook for some years. Possibly owned at some stage by David Tingle. Acquired by someone in South Africa in 2001 who had the car rebuilt by Legend Cars of Johannesburg, the car's first outing after was the Piper 2009 race at Swartkops near Pretoria where it achieved two first places in its class. Currently fitted with a different body based on a Chevron B36 / McLAren M8. Offered for sale in South Africa around 2010 when it was acquired by Colin Frost.
