PRICE REDUCED. Now $295,000

History

From 1979 through 1984 the Lola factory built an additional run of eight Lola T70 cars. They were numbered in a continuing sequence from the end of the first production run in 1969. This car is SL76/160, the second to last.

According to World Sports Racing Prototypes the T70 appears to have first been sold as T70 spares to Australia. Thereafter it went to Don Sullivan and Toby Bean sometime around 1996.

The Lola then remained as a project car while being stored for approximately another 15 years. It was then acquired by its current owner less engine.

Description

The current owner installed a small block 461 cubic inch Chevy that produces near 800 h.p. at the crank. Power is driven through a Hewland type LG 600 aluminum reproduction 5-speed HB Retro – Tecno gearbox. This is a gearbox that is currently used by other Lola T70’s. The Lola also comes with a rebuilt 305 cubic inch engine with aluminum heads that could be used for FIA Group 6 racing.

The Lola has been successfully track tested three times but still needs finishing, safety equipment updates, and a thorough going through. The car is currently located in California.

The current owner has retired from racing so the the Lola will be sold. It is likely the least used factory Lola T70 in existence.
