Canadian auto racing legend Horst Kroll has decided the time has come to sell part of his collection, a genuine part of Can-Am history. The #38 Frisbee has a rather impressive history, having been raced by Bill Adam, Jacques Villeneuve Sr. and a young guy named Paul Tracy. In fact, in his first outing in the car Tracy won the Can-Am race at Mosport. That drive led to a test with Team Penske and a full career in IndyCar.
The car is a Lola T400 Formula 5000 car, serial number HU9, that was originally built in 1974. It was raced in Formula 5000 by another Canadian legend, Eppie Wietzes. In 1983, the car was converted to Can-Am specs and received the Frisbee body.
This is a rare opportunity to own a car that is not only uniquely Canadian, but also has a complete history with only 2 owners. #38 was appraised at an estimated $135,000 in 2008.
Interested parties should contact Horst Kroll directly by phone at 416.292.7909 Be sure to tell him you read about it in The Garage!
