This car is both street legal and prepared for Vintage Road Racing. We have receipts, photos and other build information from 1986 to current that form a 3 high stack. We have a logbook and several other documents from 1989 showing this car to be serial # SB1881 and it is titled as a 1967 Lotus Seven with that serial number. It is believed that DSK built this car in 1981 but ther are not documents showing that it started with a damaged or rusted 66 Lotus. DSK was known for building winning Lotus 7’s, some from original cars and some from scratch. The car does have a rear differential and brakes from that era and a well patinaed Chassis tag but there is not enough evidence to claim that this car was born as a 1966 Lotus.
In the file there are many photos of the car in race trim and some old race results from previous owners.
At one point this car received a Ford Cosworth YBB 2000cc twin cam engine. This engine has dyno time only since rebuilt by Ivey engines in Portland, OR. The dyno results show the engine makes just over 200 HP. It is has a Quaife 4 speed gearbox, an Accusump, fuel cell, fire suppression and upgraded suspension and brakes. The car has less than one mile since the engine was built.
The current owner has not raced the car but just used it for track days at the private race track he belongs to. He has since bought two other race cars and space requires he let this one go.
He has recently spent close to $20,000 preparing the car and has not driven it since. With this power to weight ratio, and the big Hoosiers, this car would be hard to beat at the track and an absolute hoot to drive on the street!
