1961 Formula Junior at Monaco

Our earlier post about the ex-Team Tyrell championship winning 1961 Cooper T56 for sale had me wanting to see her in action. If you can find Tony Maggs’ Cooper in this very brief clip of a 1961 Monaco Formula Junior race, then you have better eyes than me. The car would have been wearing number 126 for the event.

    This ex McQueen FJ was all but destroyed in the Oakland, CA firestorm of 1991– burnt to a crisp. It was subsequently rebuilt around a handful of original bits that had been stored off site. The history prior to McQueen is undoubtedly Tyrrell but it is in all likelihood the John Love car and not the European FJ Championship winning Tony Maggs car. That would be car #124 in the 1961 Monaco Formula Junior race. It is the McQueen provenance that everyone finds exciting though.
