Make: Lola
Name: T70 Mk3
Year: 1968

We are delighted to offer the 1968 ex-Chuck Parson “Simoniz” / Bob Nagel “Thermo King” Lola T70 Mk3 – chassis SL73/128.

Introduced in 1967, the Lola T70 Mk3 was available in both coupe and spyder versions with the conversion from one version to the other relatively quick and simple. This enabled the car to be raced in the world championship and Group 4 races as a coupe, and as a Group 7 spyder in the Can-Am series.

SL73/128 was built as a Mk3 spyder for US Lola importer Carl Haas and was delivered new on 16th February 1968 and fitted with a Bartz prepared 365cid 5900cc Chevrolet V8 mated to a Hewland LG600 gearbox. Sponsored by Simoniz and painted in their orange and white livery, SL73/128 was raced in the 1968 United States Road Racing Championship by Chuck Parsons who finished third overall. The complete, continuous ownership and race history of this exceptional Lola T70 Mk3 can be found further below in the history section. A full and extensive history file comes with the car.

SL73/128 is arguably one of the best Mk3’s when it comes to provenance, documentation and preparation. Its ownership chain is unbroken while its race history with well known drivers Chuck Parson and Bob Nagel is excellent and fully documented. Add to this its top notch preparation with a Mathwall 5.7 liter SMB Chevy engine (only 3 hours running) and no-expenses-spared maintenance by both its prior and current owner. Interestingly, the car is currently fitted with coupe bodywork (in Simoniz livery) but also comes with a separate, complete spyder body (which has already been fitted to the car previously) so SL73/128 can be run as both coupe and spyder depending on the new owner’s preference, race venue or eligibility criteria.

Additional spares are 2 sets of wheels and miscellaneous running spares. The FIA HTP is from 2017 so valid for another 10 years. Fuel cell, seat belts and fire extinguisher are all current. There is nothing further to spend on this car to go racing.

This is a no-stories, proper pedigree Lola T70 Mk3 “big banger” which is eligible for all historic race events such as Masters WSM, CER, Le Mans Classic, Daytona 24hr classic, etc. where it is always a front running car. A properly driven T70 Mk3 is as quick as a Mk3B and is amazingly friendly and lots of fun to drive.

Make: Spice
Name: SE90P
Year: 1990

We are delighted to offer this unique Group C championship winning Spice SE90P-013 for sale.

First established at Silverstone circuit in 1986, Spice Engineering quickly built up a reputation for producing fast and reliable cars in the smaller Group C2 and IMSA Lights classes and after achieving considerable success on both sides of the Atlantic and winning many titles, made the move to the larger C1 and GTP classes with the SE89 which was developed and replaced by the successful SE90.

Twelve SE90 chassis were built by Spice, with this particular car, chassis SE90P-013, the only Chevrolet V8 powered car and was run in partnership as a quasi-works effort through Spice’s long standing US/IMSA connection with General Motors and the Pontiac brand which had powered the majority of Spice cars previously raced in IMSA.

Its power unit is a 6.5 liter Chevrolet engine on Kinsler injection delivering just short of 700bhp with loads of torque. The car's weight is exactly 900kg.

SE90P-013 is the 1990/91 Spice USA works car and the only Chevy engined SE90P built. Raced in the IMSA championship from 1990 to 1996 with 3 Daytona 24hr and 4 Sebring 12hr participations culminating in a 2nd OA at Sebring in 1994 and 1995 driven by an all LeMans 24hr winning driver line-up of Derek bell, Andy Wallace and Jan Lammers. After this most impressive racing career, the car then spent some years in the Auto Toy Store warehouse until being bought and rebuilt in 2008 for historic Group C racing. More recently, SE90P-013 further added to its palmares by winning the 2015 Group C Series overall and C1 class championship winner. The full racing and ownership history of SE90P-013 comes with the car.

The car is sold in 100% race-ready condition and comes with very extensive spares allowing to run the car for multiple years without the need for additional parts.

This Spice SE90P provides its new owner the possibility to run at the front of the newly invigorated Group C racing series at a fraction of the cost of similar performant cars such as Jaguar, Nissan or Sauber Mercedes ! 

Make: Chevron
Name: B8
Year: 1968

Chevron cars had burst onto the GT racing scene in 1966 with a dream debut for its B3, the very first GT car produced by the talented Derek Bennett, winning at Oulton Park in its maiden race. To racing driver John Lepp, observer at the Chevron's first track test at the same venue, this came as no surprise having already seen the GT put in a lap no less than six seconds under the GT record.

Its closely resembling successor, the Chevron B8 - more often than not powered by BMW's two liter, overhead camshaft, four cylinder engine - went onto dominate national GT racing and enjoy much success in Europe from 1968 onwards. The B8 used a space frame chassis with all independent wishbone/coil spring suspension, while its svelte and curvaceous fiberglass bodywork made it one of the prettiest GT/sports racers of its era. With its mid-mounted engine mated to a Hewland transaxle, it was duly homologated for the international Group 4 class, and it too proved highly successful: the car made its race debut at Cadwell Park on March 3rd 1968 and just over three weeks later, an example, driven by John Silverstone, took an outright win in the GT race at Silverstone; John Lepp then went on to take overall honours in the 1969 RAC Sports Car Championship.

By the time production ceased in 1970, Chevron had only built 44 B8 models of which 34 with the BMW 2.0 litre engine and 5 with the Ford 1600cc FVA engine. Whichever power unit was fitted, the B8 remained a superbly effective racing car and highly competitive in international racing, thanks to its combination of superb agility and outright speed. The situation is no different today in historic racing where the Chevron B8 and Bolton's best is a regular podium finisher in sports and GT car events.

We are proud to offer an ex-John Lepp Chevron B8 chassis CHDBE-51 for sale; one of only 5 cars build with an FVA engine which is also the power unit in the car today. Chassis #51 has well documented, continuous ownership from new (see the History section below) and benefits from excellent in-period international race history including two participations at the Nurburgring 1000km in 1968 and 1969.

CHDBE-51 currently resides in the U.S.A. and has been in its current ownership since 2005. It has always been maintained with no expenses spared and is in gorgeous condition which includes its fresh, zero miles FVA engine. It is sold in 100% race-ready condition and comes with extensive spares including wheels, bodywork, etc.. Chassis #51 has a USA issued (ACCUS) FIA HTP which needs renewal.

This pedigree and immaculate Chevron B8 is eligible for all historic race events around the world including Le Mans Classic, Daytona 24hr classic, Masters WSM, Peter Auto CER, etc. where it will be a competitive and welcomed entry.

Make: Spice
Name: SE88
Year: 1988

We have the pleasure to offer this interesting Spice SE88 C/L 002 for sale.

Spice was a very successful race car constructor of C2 cars for the World Sportscar Championship, during the late 80's and early 90's.

Formed in 1986 by successful BRDC members and sportscar drivers, Gordon Spice and Ray Bellm, they produced over 30 cars for the World Sports Car Championship in both C2 and latterly C1 classes as well as IMSA in the USA. Their major successes came in C2 where they were World Champions in 1985, 1987 and 1988 as well as class winners at Le Mans in '85, '87 and '88 and winners of Daytona in '87.

This particular car, chassis 88- 002, was originally built for IMSA racing in the USA where it took part between 1988 and 1991 (see History below). It is equipped with a Buick 4.5 Litre V6 engine and a Hewland DGB gearbox.

The engine, last rebuild by Todd Hurtle and confirmed to give in excess of 500bhp with solid reliability, has just 4 hours running on it. Belts are valid until end of 2018 and the fuel cell till 2020.

Since its last test outings in 2014, the car would benefit from a suspension crack check, general go-through and an engine check over, the total of which should not exceed a conservative GBP 20k.

002 is located in UK where an inspection is welcomed and comes with two sets of spare wheels and a spare engine which needs rebuilding.

This gorgeous C2 class Spice is a perfect entry for the Group C championship race series at a reasonable entry level price and reasonably straightforward to both drive and run.

Make: Chevron
Name: B23 (DFV)
Year: 1973

We are very pleased to offer this unique Chevron B23, the only Chevron sportscar which was powered with a Cosworth DFV engine by the factory. As the car started life as a B23 with chassis number B23-73-21, we will refer to the car by its chassis number.

Being one of the few DFV-engined sportscars existing, this stunning Chevron has shown its capabilities by winning various CER races during the 2016 season. At the end of 2016, the car was thoroughly gone through and is in fresh, race ready condition with a latest spec G. Richardson DFV engine (zero hours)and still has its original, rebuild FG400 gearbox. Fuel cell, crack test report, belts and fire extinguisher system are all current.

The ownership chain from its 1st owner to the present owner is clear and uninterrupted. B23-73-21 is well documented and comes with an attestation by Chevron Cars Ltd., a current FIA HTP and good spares.

This one-off Chevron is on-the-button and ready to provide its new owner with lots of driving joy while being a front runner in today's historic racing scene around the world.

Make: Lola
Name: T70 Mk3B Continuation
Year: 1969

We are pleased to offer this stunning Lola T70 Mk3B 2nd series factory continuation car with chassis HU76/160 for sale.

Lola Cars Ltd manufactured six 2nd series continuation cars (the 1st series were build in the early 80ies) between 2006 and 2010. HU76/160 was the 2nd one build and the 1st customer car (as Lola kept HU76/159 with them for promotion).

It was delivered in its Scuderia Filipinetti livery to its first owner, father and son Esmond and Andrew Smith, at Le Mans Classic in 2006. Maintained by Gary Pearson with no expense spared, Andrew raced the car in the World Sportscar Masters from 2006 to 2009 with many outright wins and podium finishes. The car also participated in the 2008 Le Mans parade for Lola 50th Anniversary in 2008.  After having been unused for a few years, it was then fully rebuild by Pearson prior to our brokering the sale of HU76/159 to its current owner in January of 2016 who has used the car sparingly with only about 3 hours running!

As such it is no surprise that HU76/159 is in perfect condition with a Steve Warrior 5.0 litre Chevy small block engine on carburettors, LG-600 gearbox, new fuel cells, rebuilt and crack tested suspension and rebuild brakes. Everything on the car is current and it needs nothing spend further. In addition to a 2016 FIA HTP, spares included are 3 sets of wheels, front body section and some gear-ratio’s.

Being one of a select group of only six official Lola T70 Mk3B 2nd series continuation cars, HU76/160 is now ready to make its re-appearance on the historic racing scene where it remains a welcomed and very competitive entry.
