Old F1 Car for Sale – 1979 Shadow DN9

1979 shadow dn9

From the listing for this 70’s F1 Car for sale:

This superb Shadow DN9 with its particularly eye-catching livery raced the 1979 Formula One season in the hands of Jan Lammers, who was taking part in his first Formula 1 season.

At the end of the Formula 1 season, the Shadow DN9 Chassis N° 2B was kept as part of a collection in Great Britain before being sold by Hall & Hall to a French driver, Mr. Michel Baudouin, in 2009.
In 2012, Michel Baudouin sold it in turn to its present owner, who commissioned Hall & Hall to undertake a complete overhaul of the car with a view to entering it for the Masters Historic Formula One Championship. The work was completed in 2013 and the Shadow DN9 took to the track again after many years’ absence.

About Shadow Racing Cars from Wikipedia:

Shadow Racing Cars was a Formula One and sports car racing team, founded and initially based in the United States although later Formula One operations were run from Britain. The team held an American licence from 1973 to 1975 and a British licence from 1976 to 1980, thus becoming the first constructor to officially change its nationality. Their only F1 victory was achieved as a British team
