In mid 1972 the March Works Team abandoned the failed 721X concept and produced the 721G by converting existing 722 F2 chassis to F1 spec. The result was much more competitive cars for Ronnie Peterson and Niki Lauda. The 'G' designation refers to the Guinness Book of Records, because the whole project took only nine days.

On this car every effort was taken to produce a period correct example 721G on an exisiting 722 chassis, # AM 72-47, using genuine March drawings and processes.
