My first entry is going to be Chris Amon's Matra MS120B from the 1971 Canadian GP he finished 10th after qualifying 5th. I've chosen this car because it was a bit different to the cars raced during the '71 season as it had an engine cover and a wing with extended end plates. However I have only found three pictures of the car in that configuration (see the website below) so if anyone knows where I could locate others I'd be very grateful. My fall back if the Canadian car proves unfeasible will be the Dutch GP car.
The Penelope Pitlane Matra MS120 will form the basis of the car but there will need to be modifications to the front bodywork, the sidepods (for either version) and the construction of the engine cover and an air box.
