About Me

After 37 years of looking for my father's Yimkin, the chance to purchase a chassis came in 2015. The purpose of this blog is to document my research and restoration. At the moment the plan is to rebuild the car to Formula Junior specification using a FORD 105e engine with ancillaries matching the original Yimkin sales brochure featured in library section of this site.

The chassis is reported to have been hung up in the rafters at Yimkin in Cadogan Lane in the 1960's. It then emerged from a barn in Sussex in 2015. 

What's the story behind this car?
