Bernie Ecclestone still has Elio deAngelis' wrecked Brabham BT55 locked away in a large plywood crate in a corner of his car collection garage. Never been seen or touched for the last 28 years.

David Purley's smashed LEC chassis from his 28G impact with the Silverstone track side banking can be seen...

Good grief guys - Paul Ricard test 1986 - low line BT55 - Elio only died in one crash.

The Rindt's crashed 72 shown in the last post on page 1 of this site...

Also, if you say a "wrecked" Brabham that was driven by de Angelis, surely you have to narrow it down a bit?

Suspect you're thinking of Andrea de Cesaris. Elio de Angelis, generally, was a careful, smooth and fast driver - Andrea, bar 1991, none of the three.

Donald Campbell's record breaking speedboat, Bluebird K7, the same one in which he died, is at the moment being rebuild faithfully into operating status.


More examples of cars rebuild afrer fatal crashes.

No point in putting most fatally crashed cars back together due to the prohibitive cost, more so than showing respect to the dead driver.

Just found that Rindt's Lotus 72 still survives in its same wrecked state from Monza 1970.<...

Nasty fatal crash yesterday in a historic race at Silverstone.

No film of that but prior to it happening a driver had a bad crash at Abbey. To me it looked like a suspension failure.
