McLaren M6B

Chassis Engine Year Group First owner Next owners (year) Comment
M6B-50-01 Repco 1969 Gr.7 Bob Jane, AUS (~2008)   This car was built a year later by Team McLaren, probably using Trojan parts.
M6B-50-03 Ford 1968 Gr.7 Lothar Motschenbacher => Dr. S. Nozaki (Japan) => Pinkman, CDN (~2014) Converted to M12 before going to Japan. Car has been converted back to M6B in Motschembacher configuration.
M6B-50-04 Chevrolet 1968 Gr.7 Moises Solana {destroyed} Solona wrecked the car at a hillclimb in Mexico. The car burnt for an hour and a half with Moises in it. It was buried soon after the accident. Several people claim to have purchased history from Solana family.
M6B-50-05 Chevrolet 1968 Gr.7 Bobby Aylward {destroyed} McCoy => Leonard Janke => Craig Pence & Leonard Janke (~1982) {rebuilt on a new tub} => Lilo Beuzieron (4/2007) => ?, Begium or France (~2010) Aylward was a successful club racer. He wrecked the car during a race in Oklahoma when he hit a tree. He was seriously injured as was the car. Later, Aylward was murdered and the remains of the car ended up with his mechanic McCoy. The remains, minus tub which had been damaged beyond repair, were purchased by Leonard Janke. In a partnership with Craig Pence the car was rebuilt and in 2007 it was sold to Lilo Beuzerion. He raced the car for a few years and sold it to someone in Belgium or France without the provenance or ownership trail. Beuzerion then built a very inaccurate M6 with no original parts and now claims this car has the provenance and is therefore the original car. He has been racing this car or several years as 50-05.
M6B-50-06 Alfa Romeo 1968 Gr.7 Auto Delta => Finn => Charlie Gibson (~1997) => Dave Handy (~2006) => Bolin (~2012) Used to test Alfa Romeo engine.
M6B-50-07 Chevrolet 1968 Gr.7 Dick Brown => Gordon Barrett (1970) {crashed => rebuilt on M12-60-10} => Tom Phillips => Chuck Haines (~1983) => Lowell McGrane {restored on a replica chassis}=> RM Auctions => Richard Berry => George Thompson => Dan Mershon => Dan Vargus (2009) {replica chassis replaced with original M12-60-10} => George Frey (2011) Dick Brown was killed in the car and it was sold to Gordon Barrett with a spare tub that had been purchased already by Brown. The second tub was also wrecked at Road Atlanta 1970, so they bought a M12 tub from Holman-Moody. It was raced for Barrett by Tom Dutton. It went through 3 tubs and McGrane traded the original tub for a replica tub to speed up the restoration. In 2009 Dan Vargus has repurchased the last original Tub (M12-60-10) that was raced by Barrett Racing in #50-07. This is the same original Tub that was traded away by McGrane. The last raced original tub is now back with M6B #50-07.
Information from Dan Vargus January 2010: "Gordon Barrett of Barrett Racing needed another Tub for #50-07 after crashing the second tub of #50-07. Gordon Barrett learned that Holman and Moody had a couple of new Tubs that they were not using. Gordon called Holman and Moody and asked them if they would be willing to sell one of their tubs. They told Gordon that if he would come down and look at the tubs, that they would be taking some of his Yankee money off him. Holman and Moody had two M12 Tubs sitting up on the racks when Gordon Barrett got there. He was given a choice of either one. Both tubs were new M12 tubs so it didn't matter to Gordon Barrett which one he bought. Gordon Barrett gave them $1000 for the new M12-60-10 Tub. Barrett Racing then rebuilt the M6B #50-07 with the M12-60-10 Tub. The M12-60-10 tub remained in #50-07 until the car was retired from racing by Barrett Racing. Lowell McGrane years later bought #50-07 from Chuck Haines and restored the car. Lowell McGrane sent the tub to Harold Drinkwater to be refurbished. Harold suggested that Lowell trade the tub and some money for his replica tub that he already had built. Harold retained the M12-60-10 tub and used it as a model for the building more replica tubs. In 2009 Dan Vargus after acquiring #50-07 located Harold Drinkwater in Drain Oregon. Dan Vargus was able to convince Harold to sell the original M12-60-10 tub to Vargus. The M12-60-10 tub during it's racing life with Barrett Racing had repairs and modifications made to it by Barrett Racing. Dan Vargus sent pictures of the M12-60-10 tub to Gordon Barrett to authenticate M12-60-10 tub. After reviewing the pictures Gordon has validated that Vargus does in fact have the true M12-60-10 tub that was used in #50-07 when it was last raced. M6B #50-07 now has the Harold Drinkwater replica tub and the original M12-60-10 tub.”"
M6B-50-08 Chevrolet 1968 Gr.7 Roger McCaig => Rainer Brezinka (1971) ...=> Anthony Taylor (~2005) Car was wrecked at Road Atlanta by Brezinka in 1971. Still damaged chassis was recently sold to Anthony Taylor.

It was wrecked by team mechanic Doane Spencer while filming a commercial after Can-Am season and before Fuji group 7 race. The tub was replaced but with a new M6B tub while the original tub was destroyed and thrown away. The car was sold to Hills after the Fuji race. While testing Hills went off the track and he thought he might have bent the tub so his mechanic, Doane Spencer, replaced it with a M12 tub. The second tub, the one Hills thought was bent, was sold to Keith Germane who built it to a new car.
M6B-50-09a Chevrolet   Gr.7 Vandergriff-Godsell => Jay Hills => Keith Germane => Leonard Janke => Craig Pence Built from M6B tub that was used to rebuilt original M6B-50-09 before being replaced by M12 tub (see the story above). The car was rebuilt as a M12 and then an M8 by Germane. It was raced by Janke in 1974 Can-Am and later in some single seat Can-Am races. Car was converted to a coupe by Craig Pence in 1978.
M6B-50-10 Ford 1968 Gr.7 Dan Gurney => Bobby Brown => ??...Robert Svast (1974) ??? ...=> Bob Peters => Dick Lins (1977) => Andy Boone (5/2006) The car was modified by AAR and called as McL'Eagle. Last raced in local SCCA events around Chicago by a Robert Svast.

M6B-50-15 Chevrolet 1968 Gr.7 Jo Bonnier => Bill Young => Frank Kahlich (1970) => Leonard Janke => Craig Pence => Bob Lee (03/2005~2008) In 1972 Kahlich changed the bodywork and added a wing and the car was raced as McLaren M12. Recently the car has been restored back to the Bonnier configuration.
M6B-50-16 Chevrolet 1969 Gr.7 John Woolfe => John Jordan (1972÷1994) => David Finnigan, GB (1994~2003) Car borrowed by Alistair Cowan in 1970 and raced under Paul Watson Race Organisation banner.
M6B-50-17 Chevrolet 1969 Gr.7 Oscar Koveleski => David Franklin (1981) => Manfred Dolata => Jim Pace , USA (~2012) Built by Team McLaren for Koveleski, probably using Trojan parts. Raced by Koveleski (1969), Cliff Apel (1970-71) and bought and raced by David Franklin (1981-?). Car burnt and rebuilt while owned by Koveleski. Bob Barton owns (~2003) the first tub. During 1995/97 raced by Dolata in Supersports.

Chassis M6B-50-02 and M6B-50-13 were not built.


A M6B GT was built by Bill Kasmer in the late 70's using mostly original parts. Three of the four bulkheads were original but did not match. It was restored back to a roadster by Grant Hill and is now owned by Robert Ryan. (This car is probably built using the good bulkheads from the first two tubs from 50/07.)
