Description

The famous Len Terry designed this Leda before it was built for Malaya Garages. Trevor Taylor drove to podium finishes and pole positions in F5000. Also owned by Graham McRae who helped develop this car further with Len Terry. Leda cars was purchased by McRae in 1971, and the next Leda LT-27 was named the McRae-GM1. 

    This car has been raced five times since Trevor’s ’72 colors were restored, and is currently in race ready condition. Full monocoque, inboard brakes, 1 hour on rebuilt gearbox, strong and proper 5 liter Chevy with Kinsler injection.
