Extensively developed for HRCR, long distance HERO/European historic road/regularity rally events, or the Monte-Carlo Historique, this is a highly competitive Super Imp.

Originally Rootes Competitions Department built and entered for David Pollard (’65 RAC, ’66 Scottish and ’66 Gulf London). Bought directly “ex-works” from the factory in 1967 and used by Paul Burch on the Scottish and Circuit of Ireland in 1968.

In later life it was tracked down and rebuilt with no expense spared, and used for a last fling on the Neath Valley stages. I inherited it over 10 years ago and undertook LE JOG, with the car being awarded the Concours de Confort et d'Equipement.

A few years later a new restoration was needed, and FHP 906C was returned to its original colour and styling. Already highly competitive on special tests, lessons learnt from LE JOG were employed to make it comfortable and tractable on the regularity and link sections, whilst also a clear test winner.

A fresh 998cc competition engine, new competition gearbox with ‘Monte Carlo’ gear ratios, new suspension, wiring, instrumentation and seating among other developments has made the car exactly as intended. A bedding-in event on a HERO Challenge saw it fastest overall on the final two tests.

Although work is never truly finished with a competition car, FHP 906C is now a strong, competitive Category 1 entry with real period history and a look and feel to match.

Full specification available on request.
