Jamaican BRE 510

Anybody have info ,pics or video of this car.

Jamaican BRE 510
BRE L18, built by Peter Brock. This was the BRE 510 owned by Douglas Sinclair.

Here is the car, in the state it was "discovered" in at Sinclair's before Sinclair's was closed for good:




"discovered" is quoted, because many Jamaicans knew exactly where the car was. There were only 3 BRE 510's built, all have survived.

Sinclair Datsun BRE 510 #26

The above mentioned car is owned by me and a partner. My partner bought the car out of Jamaica in 2001 and stored it until forming our partnership in 2013 to restore and vintage race BRE #26. There were 5 cars built in 1971 of which 3 survive. Nissan Museum owns the #46 John Morton Trans- Am championship car, Adam Corolla has the #35/85 car and we have the only and last unrestored car.
Right now the body is stripped down to bare metal and we are making repairs. It is in remarkable original condition never having been crashed as far as we can tell.
It would be great to acquire any history or vintage race pictures of the car in action.
