It seems probable that some time around the early 1970s the majority if not all of the rebuilt, modified and developed car was scrapped while its chassis plate and registration identity survived. Mr Dick Skipworth acquired this identity/entity from Ron Scoma to join his growing Ecurie Ecosse Collection in the late 1990s. It all arrived “…as a pile of bits in a packing case” most crucially providing the original Ecosse Le Mans Sprite’s chassis plate, serialled ‘AN5 47402’. As Dick Skipworth relates: “Lynx remade the aluminium hardtop and bonnet while I rebuilt the rest. So now we have a car that absolutely looks the part, has the right numbers, but is a re-creation of that 1961 Le Mans Sprite entered and raced by Ecurie Ecosse “.
