    The story of Augie Pabst´s McLaren MK 1A:

    The MK 1A type was the first McLaren built. The chassis were supplied by “Elva”.

    The car 20-05 was delivered from McLaren via Carl Haas in June 1965 to Augie Pabst. The car was supported by the Robert Bosch Corporation. It was called the Bosch Special 11 following on from Pabsts Bosch Special 1 which was a Chaparral 1 Chevrolet. <br> <br> Their first race was in the USRRC-Race at Lexington Mid Ohio on 29th August 1965. Pabst qualified well in 3th place but had to drop out of the race on lap 38 with mechanical trouble. <br> <br> Next race was the Canadian Grand Prix at Mosport on September 25th. Again Pabst qualified well in 7th place behind Bruce McLaren who was on Pole. Shortly after the start of the race on lap 2 Pabsts car caught fire and as result of ineffective fire fighting equipment it was severely damaged.

    Following the race Pabst ordered the damage chassis with engine to be dumped down a ravine over the border in Wisconsin due the tax reasons. It was here several years later that motoring journalist and sports car trader Bill Schley discovered the remains and displayed them in his showroom for many years.

    The recovery was accompanied by the press with numerous photos. The damaged chassis and original engine are still available.

    UK based Mc Laren enthusiast John Bladon purchased the car in 2005 and commenced a 5 year rebuilding programme by the renowned specialist TT Motor Racing in England.

    The rebuild has been completed in March 2010 and the car had more than 10 Goodwood entries after that. When Augie Pabst saw the restored car he said to Bladon “I can`t believe what you have accomplished the car looks beautiful.”

    Here is a rare opportunity to purchase one of the very first „Mc Laren“ in excellent condition and an entry ticket for top-class events.
