Chassis No.1252 has recently been advertised for sale. The car was first registered in 1955 as UHU 134 in Bristol and used in the UK until 1990, when it was imported to Guernsey by John Machon and re-registered as 8003. Despite the car dealer’s claim of, “no known or documented history prior to its importation to Guernsey,” a lot of information is available about the car’s early life. For example No.1252 was once owned by the late Alec Pringle, a truly enthusiastic Doretti owner, who commented. “In 1975 I saw UHU 134 (Chassis No.1252), advertised in Sussex and bought it forthwith; an early Doretti with some competition history and in pretty fair nick.” Alec sold the car in 1979 and many years later he said it was the only car he ever really regretting selling.
