​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.
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 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.

Fire Pump Cylinder Head requires machining.

This car is truly immaculate and ready to go.
