1937 BMW/Frazer-Nash 328 Roadster (ex Lord Howe race car)

BMW distributed RHD versions of the 328 roadster through Frazer Nash in the UK. This particular car was shown at the Eastbourne Concours d'Elegance in 1937 and shortly thereafter was purchased by A. F. P. Fane, an actor and talented race driver who was also a member of the Frazier-Nash racing team. A couple of years later it was then sold to Viscount Curzon later titled Lord Howe. When Cooper's client Ben Rose acquired the car many years later, Howe--who was then quite elderly--asked if Rose could continue to race "their car" under his racing number--30. Cooper completely restored the engine and mechanicals to top running condition.
