It is thought that C & G built between 6 and 8 Frazer Nash chassis in total. According to Dick Crosthwaite it all began when Stephen Curtis entrusted C & G to rebuild and rebody the original Le Mans Replica, chassis number FN9. FN9 had had a hard life and had been substantially modified. The chassis work was carried out by C & G themselves whilst the bodywork was replicated by Peels of Surbiton. Crosthwaite and Gardener would borrow FN Le Mans rep FN158, owned by Martin Morris, for reference purposes. Whilst Crosthwaite and Gardiner had access to these two original cars they thought it would be a good opportunity to build some tool room copies; one for themselves and a handful of others for like-minded enthusiasts. Once again, C & G built the chassis and the bodies were made by Peels of Surbiton, whilst engines and gearboxes came from donor Bristol cars of the 1950’s era.

This particular car has a very interesting history; of all the cars built by C&G this one probably has the purest history, being owned by a single custodian. Since then it has sat in an eclectic collection alongside original Le Mans and TT Rep Nashes. The car has covered very few miles from new, with old MOT’s on file showing the current mileage is correct at c. 600. Always lovingly cared for, the car benefits from recent servicing and has been set up for road motoring. It is very rare not only to find a very accurate tool room copy but also a car that was purchased directly from C & G. With original Frazer Nash Le Mans Replicas approaching £700, 000. This C & G car is a perfect candidate for great motoring at a fraction of the cost.

In a recent telephone conversation with Dick Crosthwaite, he remembers selling this car to the current custoridan and he is very happy to talk to any interested party about the car.
