Lotus XI S2 Replica
This is an almost new car built in 2003 and has covered about 500 miles from new.  The engine is a 1020cc converted climax fire pump built by Oselli.  I haven't seen the car but by all accounts it is built to a very high and exacting standard and ready to go.  The car is available for a test drive in Suffolk.

FWBp 1460 Firepump.

This is as near as you can get to an FWB car engine. The cylinder head, valves etc are exactly the same as a car, including a car dynamo, finned pulley and mountings. It has drop forged steel crank and conrods and an FWB block with 3 inch (76.2mm) liners. Its electric start.
​Lotus MK6.  1172cc side valve with Aquaplane head.
This is a well known very original car with a good history. The current owner has looked after this car well over the last few years and it is on the button and ready to go.          Very good condition.
Lotus Big Valve Twin Cam cylinder head, with cam cover, for webers.  In very good condition and in standard unskimmed form.                Very rare £2,495 o.n.o.
Very Rare Original FWB Coventry Climax 1460cc.

In 1956/57 Climax made 35 of these engines for Lotus, Cooper, etc.  I've never seen any of these engines before and then two came my way.  The block is similar to the FWA, the same oil system, but with bulges for the longer stroke, plus specially machined main caps.

Engine 1. was first fitted to Lotus XI chassis #158 and subsequently to XI #380.  The engine is in bits at the moment.

Engine 2. came from Lotus 17 #657.  This 17 was entered for Le Mans in 1959, but never ran, and was subsequently sold to Canada by Innes Ireland.  It was a billet steel crank, drop forged pistons and a stage 2 cam. 

Both engines are in good condition with various bit missing, all of which I can supply and build.
