In 1968, J.W. Automotive were short
of a car for the Spa 1000 kms race. 1004 was taken out of storage
and rebuilt to Gulf specification and renumbered 1084. Due to the
fact that it was an early chassis, the car was always going to be
slightly heavier than its sister cars which had some steel panels
replaced with aluminium.
1084 only raced once for the team,
at Spa in 1968 and finished 4th, 1075 being the winner.
The car, which is well known in
Britain, is owned by Martin Colvill who regularly races the car,
still in Gulf colours. It has recently been fitted with new body
panels and looks every inch a Gulf car.
