  • Chassis Number: P139-01
  • It is with great pleasure that we are able to offer for sale such a pure and time-warp example of Formula 1’s golden era.
  • The first P139 built, driven for BRM in 1969 by new recruit, team leader and former World Champion John Surtees.
  • A podium finisher with 3rd place at Watkins Glen with Surtees in the 1969 United States Grand Prix, BRM’s best result of 1969 and the best result for a P139.
  • Kept by BRM until bought by the current family owners in 1971 and retained by them in a 50 year ownership.
  • Used just twice since, with both occasions in the years following its acquisition, P139-01 was not seen and had not moved away from its home for 48 years until transported to our showroom.
  • Accompanied by the original BRM supplied spares including the original swooping rear wing, a pair of new P142 four valve cylinder heads, two BRM gearbox casings and a third rear cover, unpainted nose, and many smaller parts. The original correspondence and invoices from BRM along with original correspondence with Dunlop are retained within the file.
  • Presented in unrepeatable condition while having top line Formula 1 podium pedigree with the only man to be World Champion on two wheels and four.
