Stanguellini 00139 update
December 28th, 2018
Owned by Briggs Cunningham and mostly raced by Walt Hansgen, Stanguellini 00139 was the first Formula Junior to go to the US, the first to race there and the first to win there. The car has been back in Europe for the past thirty-five years and is currently owned by a customer. In readiness for its return to historic racing, the brakes and other items are being overhauled by Michael and Andrew Hibberd and a new full race-spec engine and gearbox are being built by Setford and Company Further updates to follow. In the meantime, some pictures of the nearly-completed engine below.
