Description: We are excited to offer this unique Wolf-Williams FW05 chassis 3 for sale.
At the end of 1975, wealthy Canadian businessman Walter Wolf bought the assets of the Hesketh racing team who had run out of money and had quit the sport. Amongst those assets was the Hesketh 308C/1 and an unbuilt spare tub, 308C/2. Wolf also bought 60% of Frank Williams Racing and reformed the team as Walter Wolf Racing for 1976 with the 308C becoming the Williams FW05. Chassis 308C/1 was re-numbered FW05/1 with the unbuilt spare-tub 308C/2 then built up by Williams as FW05/2.
By the mid-point of the season FW05/3 was built and would be the only one of the three FW05s to be made from scratch by Williams and the only proper FW05 as opposed to a renamed 308C. FW05/3 was also the last car built by Frank Williams Racing in its original format and was raced by Jacky Ickx and Arturo Merzario for the remainder of the 1976 F1 season.
As both FW05/1 and FW05/2 have been returned to their Hesketh 308C specification and livery, FW05/3 is the only example remaining.
A full race and ownership history is available upon request.
