To this day, Pat Mosss win on the Liege-Rome-Liege remains one of the greatest female sporting achievements.
Pat was unquestionably the fastest lady rally driver of all time. Her performances with the big Healey when she regularly beat the other male members of the team were sensational. From 23 events in the Big Healeys she gained 11 class wins, 14 Ladies awards, two European Ladies Championships, that remarkable Liege win in 1960 and runner up in the Alpine Rally in the same year. Pat was the first person to win an International Rally for BMC in the Liege Rome Liege Rally in 1960 and also the first person to win an International Rally in a Mini Cooper in 1962 in the Tulip Rally.
At the end of its rallying career, URX 727 was purchased from the Works department by Pat Moss in 1961. Pat and her husband Eric Carlsson entered the car as a private entry in the 1961 Mille Miglia which had become a rally. For reasons unknown, the car did not start the event. Pat and Eric turned the journey into a Holiday before returning to the UK. A year later, Pats other commitments took priority so asked John Sprinzel to find a buyer for the car. David Friswell became the new owner in 1962.
URX727 has remained with the current (11th) owner since 2004, who commissioned JME Healeys to restore the car in every possible detail to exactly as she appeared during the famous 1960 Liege-Rome-Liege victory. Soon after the restoration was completed in 2005 URX was privately shown to a famous select group of 20 people who were involved in the amazing Liege win in 1960. The car is in near concourse condition having been restored and maintained by JME Healeys.
Along with the purchase of the vehicle comes an incredible collection of Pat Moss, Ann Wisdom and URX 727 history and memorabilia as collected by the owner over the last 14 years.
