The LeGrand Mk10

In the world of single-seat racing, the plethora of manufacturers offered aspiring racers and weekend road burners any number of options from Citation to Lotus to Zink. Among the options offered for the smaller formula cars was California-based LeGrand, started Aldin 'Red' LeGrand. A senior mechanical engineer in the aerospace industry, LeGrand started his eponymous company with a Renault-based special that completed in the early 1960s. He worked his way up to Formula 4 with his successful Cheetah in 1963 and later to Formula B with the Mk6 and then laterally to Formula Ford with the Mk10 in 1968.

Essentially a simplified version of the Mk6, the Mk10 was no slouch as it kept the high-tech and light weight adjustable Heim joint suspension of it's bigger brother. Bodywork was shared between the two Marks. Initially fitted with magnesium wheels and front uprights, changes in the Formula Ford rules prompted a switch to steel. Bodywork also slowly changed to comply with Formula Ford regulations while the wheelbase and front and rear track grew over the years. After four successful years, the Mk10 was replaced by the Mk13F which featured new bodywork and inboard brakes.

The Motorcar Offered Here

This Mk10 is fresh from long term storage. Fitted with the later steel wheels and suspension uprights, this former Scuderia Aeronaut LeGrand includes its original red and white striped body work. The cockpit includes its original steering wheel and gauge cluster along with a fitted, padded seat. Offered without a drivetrain, it could is designed to accept a 1,600cc Formula Ford motor.

A fun and inexpensive way to get into motorsports, this Mk10 is an excellent basis for a weekend racer.

Offered on a Bill of Sale.
