Footnotes

  • This rare GSM Dart is one of 168 built in South Africa and the UK between 1959 and 1964. Homologated in 1961 with a 997 Ford pre-crossflow engine, GSM Darts were raced throughout the 1960s in numerous international events in the UK and South Africa. This included class and outright wins in the 9 hour endurance at Kylami and holding the Brands Hatch short circuit class record for a number of years.

    This 1964 Dart is one of the later South African built cars with the 1500cc pre-crossflow Cortina engine, front disc brakes and a removable hard top. Originally registered in South Africa in 1964, (as certified by the GSM Car Club of South Africa) it was subsequently modified and re-registered 1986. The car was imported to the UK and registered with MOT here in April 2001. The current owner acquired the car in June 2009 as a project for historic racing, and between 2009 and 2011 spent approximately £25,000 on restoring the car for race preparation. A new build 1500cc Ford pre-cross flow engine on twin 40DCO Weber Carburettors was installed, and a rolling road test showed 118bhp at the wheels (approx. 135bhp at flywheel). Complete with 2000E gear box and extensive chassis and suspension work, the car awaits completion by the next owner. Overall, the car is in a good condition and starts and runs well.
