Blankevoort Special to be resurrected

Blankevoort Special

The first two of these pictures are of the 'Blankevoort Special' as published on page 26 of the book 'Autodesign in Nederland'; the other two are of the car as it is now. This racing special was built in 1954 by Dutchman Willem Blankevoort, initially using a prewar Lancia Augusta engine, which was later replaced by a MG TD unit.

The car made its appearance at the start of the sports car races at the Zandvoort circuit in the 1950s, but it was only recently that t was found back. More or less as a barn find and it is now subjected to a ground up restoration. 

Not very much is known about the car, but perhaps there is somebody here who could contribute to the rebuild? Any picture or any kind of information would be much appreciated.
