Hello. I ann selling a Lotus Type 22 'simulator'. This was used to promote Lotus back in the early 60's around motor racing circuits and motor shows. 77 real racers were build and i believe 6 'simulators'. but built by the same team who made the genuine racers. It is similar to the Lotus 20. but the Type 22 had dic brakes all around as does this auction car. It was never intended to by raced as it was never constructed to have a engine and gear box installed. and in case you are wondering it would be impossible to retro fit an engine and box into the chassis with out rebuilding the rear end with the addition of chassis structure. I bought the rolling car from Bonhams classic car auctions here in Sydney with the intention of restoring it and hanging it from the warehouse wall as a 'art car'. but never did get around to achieving this ambition. but maybe you can. It has been totally dismantles and a few parts cleaned up and painted such as the brakes and chassis rails. One of the suspension arms is slightly bent but can easily be straightened with a bit of heat and muscle. It will require some glass fibre repair work and a new floor pan at some stage. The seat would need recovering as well as a new dash backing plate. I have also had the wheels cleaned back and etch primed. new tyres would be needed to put onto the Lotus Elan steel wheels. The wind screen is gone as it had a large crack. but they are available from the Lotus Historic club in the UK. I can send more pictures if you like of the dismantled parts. Happy to ask challenging questions as best I can. Located in Paddington Sydney. Collection only. but can easily fit into a one ton van. Low reserve as i would like to see it bought and restored. Regards and thank you Alex
