looking for pics of bob freeboroughs car (33 replies)
BOO 911F was on a MCR stand at the NEC in the early 2000s so there may be pictures in an old club magazine or in Robert Clayson's photo archive or even Robert Young's.
There may also be some photos of EBD from a Minis to Monte event, 2004 or 2006.

You are right as far as the identity is concerned, but for the 1975 RAC, Bob and Terry competed using Bob's car, but with Terry's BOO911F identity.
Terry I think had BOO911F on a Mini and a Porsche at some point.
Terry also had a Mini which ran as BOO, in which he later went on to compete with great success.
The Abingdon built, ex 1975 RAC car, however, still exists with the Freeborough family, but has no rights to the number plate. Just as it has no right to the GRX 5D Works identity in which it competed the Marathon de la Route in 1967.
History, unfortunately, is seldom convenient.
Thanks to Phil Harris there'll be a nice article about his father Les and his exploits rallying with Bob Freeborough in the next MCR magazine. Lots of nice photos too !
