Spending its early life in the Production and Competition departments it may well be the car used for speed trials at Montlhery (it was either MaBeL or 10104) in October 1955 when, standard, Ken Wharton covered 103 miles and, streamlined (le Mans trim with 3.7 diff), John Gott covered 113 mile in one hour.

 

A lucky and successful car, MaBeL had a near-perfect Works Competition history, always driven by ladies, a virtual Who’s-Who of contemporary British female drivers.

 

Nancy Mitchell won the European Ladies Championship in 1956 & 1957. MaBeL is the car mostly associated with that success, carrying the Mille Miglia Badge that she used on all her cars.

 

MaBeL was the “Roads-Opening” car for the 1956 Isle of Man TT motorcycle races, driven by Brian Mylchreest.
