1962 Lotus Super Seven

1962 Lotus Super SevenThis authentic Lotus Seven is a true vintage race car (not a show car) with a lovely patina. The chassis plate and frame number match with factory records, nd the car has most items necessary for street use in most states. It was registered recently.

The SB-1545 is one of the original left-hand drive Series 2 Sevens built by Lotus Components Ltd. It ran as an SCCA racer in the early 70’s (notably F-Prod by Chuck Cotterell and the Royal Auckland Fusiliers in the Ohio region).

By the early 1980’s the car ended up at Howard Wests’ Vintage Sports Car Warehouse in Pittsburg. It was purchased by Graham Straub, ho had intentions to rebuild it as a bulletproof street machine, ith all of the shortcomings of the Series 2 engineered out. The restoration was completed by Red-Line racing in Pittsburg.

SB-1545 was the cover car for the 1985 Pittsburg Vintage Grand Prix program.

Car runs and drives very well, ut it needs repair to small leak in radiator, nd bushings in shift linkage need to be replaced. The speedometer is inoperable (and as such, ileage listed is not correct. It is there only because eBay requires it).
Over 30 years worth of records and receipts are included.
