Collector Garage Is Selling A 1976 McLaren M-23

A Storied Piece of Racing History.

In a remarkable offering for historic racing enthusiasts and collectors, the 1976 McLaren M23-12, a gem from the pinnacle of Formula One engineering, is now available for purchase. This chassis, driven by Jochen Mass during the 1977 season, has an illustrious track record, including a standout 2nd place finish in the Swedish Grand Prix and points finishes in Monaco and Spain. Renowned for its authenticity and a well-documented lineage that traces back to its first race, this McLaren represents a direct link to the golden era of Grand Prix racing.

The car's journey through the circuits of history is as compelling as its performance on the track. Initially debuted by Mass at the 1977 US Grand Prix West, it quickly demonstrated its capabilities under his command. Despite a challenging start, the M23-12 showed resilience and competitiveness throughout the season, leading to several strong finishes. After retiring from professional racing, the car passed through the hands of notable racing personalities, including Harley Cluxton and Steve Earle, enhancing its pedigree and connection to motorsport history.

Under its current ownership, the McLaren M23-12 has been maintained with no expense spared, ensuring it remains competitive in the historic racing scene. It recently clinched the 2021 Masters Historic Championship and continued to impress at prestigious events like the Grand Prix Historique de Monaco 2024. Offered with a zero-hour Ford DFV engine and a robust package of spares, this car is prepared to continue its legacy on the track.

Included with the sale are extensive service records, a DME report, and a clean Carfax report, providing transparency and assurance of its condition and storied past. This sale presents a rare opportunity to own a significant piece of motorsport history, ready to both collect and compete.
