The last Rondel M1 monocoque, numbered 209, remained with Rondel when the team became Token in 1974 when Tony Vlassopulos and Ken Gob took over, and was handed over to Peter Thorp of Safir Engineering in 1975. As well as running the Token F1 car, Safir also bult a Safir F3 car for Patrick Neve to race, and in built up the unused Rondel monocoque as a Safir F2 car. It only appeared at the Silverstone F2 race in August 1975, but its Ford Pinto engine was misfiring badly and it was "put away". After Safir went into liquidation, it was acquired by Vlassopulos, and was retained by him until 1988, when it was bought by George Langhorne and former Rondel partner Neil Trundle, complete except for bodywork and gearbox. Langhorne and Trundle restored the car to immaculate condition, completing it in 2016. The car was subsequently sold to its current owner who has raced the car with great success over the last few years. Complete with small spares package. Please call for more information.
