Though best known for Formula Ford chassis, the Dulon marque also ventured into sportscars, and its 1969 GT coupe has just returned to the track after 30 years away.
Badged as LD6 and thought to be unique, the car was raced sparingly in club events by Fred Lyons, and has lived in a series of garages since 1974. Four years ago, Andy Reeves acquired the car and it has been completely rebuilt by Tarcal Fabrications. “It was a basket case,” says Tarcal’s John Tartlee.
Bill Longley, one of Dulon’s founders, was present to see the car’s successful shakedown race at Mallory Park in October, and Reeves now plans to tackle Group 4 events across Europe. Its steel chassis is clothed in a neat fibreglass body, and with a 1600cc Lotus twin-cam amidships it should be a competitive class runner in the Gp4 series.
