FN182, The Wyndham Hewitt Targa Florio, is the 7th of only 10 MK1 cars and the only one built to‘ Gran Sport’ specification, having a lightweight 18-swg aluminium body, which incorporated front brake cooling vents either side of the larger grill fitted to aid cooling. The specification also included a long range 20 ½ gallon fuel tank, Al-fin brake drums and steel bolt-on wheels.
The first owner Wyndham Hewitt used FN182 for continental rallying, the first event being the Sestriere Rally in February 1953. This was followed in March 1953 by the Rallye Soleil Cannes.
In February 1954 FN182 returned to AFN to be re-painted metallic blue from the original metallic red.

FN182 drives eagerly with that evocative crisp and pleasing Bristol 6 cylinder exhaust note, the oil pressure remaining consistent at 60Lbs once warm. It is delightfully light to handle, has excellent full weather equipment and offers the prospect of wonderful long distance events, rallies, hill climbs, sprints and circuit racing. All this plus membership of the thriving Frazer Nash Car Club!
