The bed length is 11ft and the width 5ft 5 inches. 
It is fully enclosed, the GRP body lifting on gas struts. It has lockable body fasteners for security and a tow hitch security lock. It has a fully galvanised chassis and is braked. There is a spare wheel mounted under the deck and an electric winch on the A frame.

Re - Listed: For Sale 1966 Johnny Walker JW4 single seater racing car
16 February 2020

Johnny Walker JW4

For Sale 1966 Johnny Walker JW4 single seater racing car.
Johnny Walker first began producing racing cars in 1965 with his prototype Walker Type 65, the following year the JW4 Mk2 his first production racing car was released to the market at the 1966 Olympia Racing Car Show.

This particular 1966 red Johnny Walker JW4 has quite a comprehensive history of past owners and competition over the last 50 years and has probably one of the most complete histories of all the surviving JW4's of which more detail can be provided on request.

Having been recently restored it would originally have been fitted with a 250cc Villiers engine but is currently fitted with a 500cc single cylinder GM speedway engine and a Norton gearbox.
It is potentially eligible for historic sprint, hillclimb up to 600cc classes, HSCC Formula Junior (Class G7) and 500 Formula 3 circuit racing offering potential buyers a very affordable entry into historic Motorsport or to enjoy in a private collection.

This is a unique opportunity to own one of the last few remaining Johnny Walker JW4's and with a full history. With a guide price of £17,500, serious sensible offers are invited and prospective buyers are encouraged to contact me to discuss the car and for further details.

There are a number of spare parts available with the car.

The car is located in Bristol and is available for any inspection or provision of further photographic detail and shipping to any UK or overseas buyer.

For more information about the Johnny Walker JW4 and Formula IV please see

JS 500cc F3
2 January 2020

A unique car, made in Belgium by Lucien Quadbach, raced in the early 1950’s, Topolino based

Sold to Luca Dupanloup (1945--2000) a cartoonist, involved with the TinTin character. Upon his death, the original JAP engine had been removed for rebuild---it never returned.

The history is not known but the nature of motor racing over this period was very local and informal and unlikely to be recorded. It is supposed to have run in France and Benelux, there was a Swiss oil label sticker on the engine cover.

The car is variously mentioned in the publication "Bibel Du Racer 500"

The car was purchased in September 2009 by a Formula Junior owner/driver, and was at some stage sent to the UK and offered to members of the 500 fraternity.

It lay in storage for a number of years, and I purchased it in August 2017. It appeared to have been prepared for display in a museum and could not be driven!

An exhaust system, narrow bore with twin entry to the silencer, together with engine mounting plates from a motorcycle were supplied

The car was supplied with a JAP engine, which proved to be very much a BITSA----as was the Norton Laydown gearbox. The 4b engine and the transmission have been rebuilt by acknowledged tradesmen and enthusiasts. The missing carburettor has been replaced by a new, of the period, Gardner.


The rebuild is almost complete, and the car has a VIF, # 117


The reason for sale, is that following a knee operation, I am not 100% and this has sadly clipped my wings

The drive has been set up, with the help of 500 club members to give optimal performance with the 4b engine 


The car is at Sissinghurst Kent, asking price £15000, which includes a covered trailer and a battery powered starter.
