From 1953 to at least 1959 a number of Buckler Mk 90’s were manufactured.
Elsewhere it would appear the body of the Mk 90 was designed by New Zealander Ferris de Joux, although I suspect Ferris may have designed a fiber glass body for at least one Buckler raced in New Zealand, most of the known Buckler Mk 90’s, including the 1956 example featured to day seen at Oulton Park, were fitted with aluminium bodies which leads me to question de Joux’s involvement with the Mk 90 bodies seen in the UK.
If you know that de Joux’s design made it beyond New Zealand for the UK aluminium bodied cars please do not hesitate to chime in below.
Of the seven races known to racingsportscars in which Buckler Mk 90’s were driven, two of them were won by a Mk 90 with N. Grier-Rees at the wheel including the 1957 Silverstone Relay Race.
