The 1974 MDB19 was an updated version of the successful MDB17 &
18 Formula 2 cars, the steering was modified for hill-climbing.
This car raced in the European Formula 2 championship and was then updated to MDB19 specification in 1974, when it received a new chassis number, it appears that this car was originally numbered MDB17 03 72 and was Patrick Dal Bo's own car that finished 4th on its debut at Thruxton.
I've now found a spare set of bodywork with the more common needle nose and wheels for the MDB17.
Now gone to Gerard Gamand who will restore it with the correct 2 litre fuel injected Cosworth BDG engine, for Euro F2 historic races.
