For your consideration is a vintage Lotus 20/22 Formula Race Car Simulator Chassis and Body.   Lotus produced a number of these simulators in the 1960's and used them at race events and trade shows to showcase their racing cars.   The simulator consisted of a full size Lotus race car chassis which sat on a stand before a curved screen.   A projector was used to produce an image on the screen ahead of the car and driver.   Steering inputs moved the projector through a cable and pulley system simulating left/right steering inputs as the driver "drove" around the track.   Very primative by modern standards but quite novel in its day.

I am offering the chassis and body partially restored.   The simulator is disassembled and will require assembly and some work to complete. The body was restored some time in the past.   The orginal gel coat was sanded down and the body re-sprayed in a dark Lotus green with yellow stripe.   The paint has chips. cracks. scrapes on the belly pan. and bubbling on some of the uppper surfaces.   The frame was originally built on a Lotus 31 jig.   It does not contain the standard number of tubes and therefore cannot be used for racing purposes.   I emphasize this for anyone thinking that this can be converted into an actual race car; it cannot. The remaining suspension and steering components are actual vintage Lotus parts with a few exceptions.   Some components are simulator specific.   There are quite a few simulator related components missing but the actual frame. body. and suspension components that allow you to assemble a full size Lotus that will roll and steer are there.   This is a great project for a vintage racing fan.  

Photos showing the complete race car on wheels are not current and are included only to show what it will look like when re-assembled.   I will be adding additional photos over the coming days.

Condition: This is a vintage item.   The fiberglass body panels have surface cracking. checking. nbsp; scrapes. chips. and bubbling in paint. Tubular steel frame has been sand blasted and powdercoated.   Frame members show areas of pitting from previous corrosion and may have internal corrosion. Wishbones. links. and radius arms have been replated in nickel and show signs of pitting from previous surface corrosion. Exhaust manifolds powercoated and exhaust pipe re-plated in nickel. Steel wheels are unrestored and have rim dents and dings and areass of light surface corrosion. Leather covered instrument panel and steering wheel in Lotus red.   Black fiberglass bucket seat.   Many other parts have been restored and repainted.   The "car" portion of the simulator is about 95% complete but some small parts are missing. This is the chassis and body only.   There are no other simulator parts included (vehicle stand. projector. screen system. etc).   The title field shows "Water Damage"  as there is no title for this item.   This was never an actual motor vehicle.   This simulator is disassembled and will require re-assembly.

Shipping:  I will not ship this item.   Local pick up only.   The body and frame are about 12 feet long.   The rest fits nicely in a few large boxes.   Total weight probably 300-400 lbs.
