Description

Lotus 7 S3/Caterham Super 7 S3 very rare factory supplied all new in 1978.  These 7's are very rare as this was the car which was based on the last Lotus 7 Twin Cam SS after the demise of this model.  The majority of these early Caterham 7's were exported mainly to Japan, hence very rare.
At the time these were the most sought after Caterham 7's as they had the Lotus Big Valve Twin Cam engine, Ford 2000E close ratio gearbox, Ford RS2000 back axle and Smiths chromed instruments and very fast, 0-60 in sub 6 seconds.  This car has just completed a 100% detailed comprehensive restoration.  Everything has been taken apart and refurbished, replaced as necessary.
Low mileage, two owners and fastidious previous owner.  Full history with original order form.  Requires running in and is ready to drive with new MOT, perfect collectors car., concours condition.
