A 1965 Lotus Seven S2 Cosworth that has been freshly restored to the specification to which it was originally built.

The owner prior to me had owned the car for twenty five years and I have some wonderful shots of the car taken early in to his ownership. I acquired the car one year ago and set about a comprehensive restoration.  

The chassis was fully restored by Arch Motors and was then delivered to a marque expert of some thirty five years' standing for him to commence the build. The chassis number is SB19**.


Factory records show that the vehicle was originally supplied with a 1500cc Ford pre-crossflow engine to a Cosworth specification. The car has correct Weber DCOE2 carburettors that have been totally rebuilt. The correct Ford gearbox and Standard Ten rear axle were employed. along with a set of Lotus Elan bolt-on wheels with hubcaps. Uprights are of the correct early Triumph type with new springs and shock absorbers.

The restoration has remained as faithful to the original specification as possible with just a couple of considerations made to modern motoring. in the interests of safety. These include a later. collapsible. steering column and a “Monza” style fuel filler cap rather than the simple screw-on type.

Accompanying the vehicle will be a comprehensive portfolio of bills and receipts. plus various other correspondences including a letter from Lotus Cars confirming the date of manufacture. The vehicle has successfully passed a UK MOT test and has a (zero cost) UK tax disc. The UK registration document is in my name. also showing the previous owner of twenty five years.

I have just returned from a successful “shakedown” drive of 60 miles in the vehicle during which it performed perfectly so it is now ready to be enjoyed by its' new owner.

The vehicle is realistically priced in today's market and represents great value. I will be pleased to assist with overseas shipping if required and I have further detailed images available. I can be contacted at any time. should you wish to discuss the vehicle further on 07718 385168.

Many thanks for looking!
