Information

​Raced by John Cordts in 1970-1971 as number 57. Butcher bought the car without engine and after collision with Donohue in Mosport 1973 ran with revised bodywork. It was raced also by Mike Brockman and Dick Durant for Jim Butcher Racing. The car was crashed and the tub bent in a practice accident in Road Atlanta 1973. Jim Butcher acquired another M8C tub from Szarkowicz while the original tub was repaired by Dick Durant who was scheduled to run the second team entry in Can-Am 1974 but the sponsorship failed and the car was not used. Both this tub and the one from Szarkowicz were then sold to John Garth. (Reed Grundy purchased a chassis from this car from chuck Haines and is rebuilding it as M8C 70-05)
