1961 COOPER CLIMAX 2.5-LITRE FORMULA 1 RACE CAR








1961 Cooper Climax 2.5 Litre Formula One

This 1961 Cooper Climax is the first of two Works cars and was built for, and driven by Jack Brabham (Cooper Cars) in the 1961 Grand Prix season. The 1961 regulations saw a change to an engine capacity of 1500cc so a 1500cc Climax was first intalled. At the end of the 1961 season Jack transformed the car with the optional 2.7 and 2.5 Climax engines to meet the regulations for the New Zealand and Australian Tasman Series where the car was very successful, winning three out of eight races entered and placing second in three others. We have extensive race and ownership history on this very important Cooper upon request. This car is sure to please at any vintage racing event world wide.
