Description

This unique 1964 Diva GT Typ C Prototype was supplied by Tunex to no one less than Jackie Oliver.

He is a famous F1 driver who drove for Lotus, BRM, McLaren and Shadow winner of the Le Mans 24 H and Arrows F1 team owner. Jackie Oliver bought this with the intention a driving it at the 1964 LE Mans 24 H. This Diva was completely modified for this specific purpose with a rare Hewland 5-speed gearbox and a Cosworth tuned 1293 cc Ford engine and front and back disc brakes. The bodywork was widened and an aluminium shell made in his fathers’ Jaguar workshop replaced the glass fibre shell. Jackie’s plans for taking part in the `64 Le Mans were thwarted by a delay in acquiring the race documents because of a protest by Triumph! Until the end of 1964 Jackie raced the Diva with success. He then sold the car to Tony Goodwin, who subsequently raced the car successfully on many occasions until 1979. This cars’ greatest achievements are; 1963 winner of the John Davy Trophy, 1963 winner of the Nurburgring 1000km, `64 & `65 1st & 2nd Redex Trophy, 1966 winner of the Scottish GT championship, 1967 British Eagle International Trophy winner, 1967 Wills International Trophy, winner of the 1968 Nurburgring 1000km Guards International Trophy, global winner of the 1979 and 1983 1979 H.S.C.C. Grand Prix Models Classic Sports Car Championship in addition to over another 200 national victories! Naturally all these racing achievements have been fully documented. This Diva is especially unique because of its racing provenance and mechanics. The powerful Ford engine delivers 130 Hp and in combination with a 490 kg low weight, 5-speed gearbox and disc brakes all-round explains this cars prowess at the many races it participated in. This is car number 3 of only 13 Typ C`s ever built. Both Jackie Oliver as well as Tunex owner, Don Sim bundled their efforts in restoring this car to its former glory.

Gallery Aaldering is a family owned business since 1975. Founder Nico Aaldering and his son Nick are responsible for operational and executive management. The company has been in Brummen since 1987 and started on the location where we currently have our second workshop and detailing shop.
Moving to Brummen
Nico started very small, with only three employees. People who still work for the company today. The company grew rapidly and established a name for itself based on quality. In the nineties it was time for expansions after many years of selling Alfa Romeo, then Italian cars later on followed by British cars as well. At the end of 2000 Gallery Aaldering moved to the current premises at the Arnhemsestraat in Brummen. This showroom was build according to Nico's idea and sketches and has a Neoclassical style to match the classic cars inside.

Second generation

During this time Nick entered the company after finishing his studies and working for different automotive companies. Gallery Aaldering expanded and gained momentum with the decades of experience offered by Nico and the bright new ideas and progressive vision offered by Nick. The collection became more diverse with an important move upwards to higher segments. Gallery Aaldering has grown to become one of the largest classic car dealers in Europe. There are about 350 classic cars on display on four floors with a Grand Café and special rooms for business meetings.

Passion

As a family owned business Gallery Aaldering is proud of its history and traditions, but the future is just as important. At the heart of this all is the passion for classic automobiles. For that reason we participate in the most impressive classic car rally in the world, the Mille Miglia.

A deeply rooted love for cars. You will find this in both our genes and the identity of this family owned business.
