We are pleased to offer this magnificent 1967 Lola T70 Mk3, chassis SL73/109, for sale.
SL73/109 was delivered new as a Mk3 spider to John Mecom, the US Lola importer, on the 21st March 1967 and then passed to Carl Haas, who was in the process of taking over as the US Lola agent.
Delivered in plain white and fitted with a Bartz Chevrolet V8, it was sold to Moises Solana of Mexico. Entered by the Aztec Racing Team, Moises raced the car in the ’67 USRRC and also in Mexican track, road racing and hillclimb events over the next two years before letting his brother, Hermann take over the car when Moises switched to a new McLaren M6B. In 1969 SL73/109 was sold to Spurlock Taylor of Panama, Central America who raced the car for some time and won the Panamanian GP in 1970. It was later donated to the Indianapolis Museum where it resided for some years before being sold on. SL73/109 was then owned by Jeff Stevens in the mid-70s who did some minor club events with the car thereby crumpling its nose.
Chuck Haines bought the car from Jeff complete and with a Bartz Chevrolet V8, repaired the nose, and quickly sold it on to Fernando Stirling of Mexico who in turn sold the car to Roly Nix in England for historic racing. Unfortunately, the car was badly damaged when it fell off its trailer on the way to an event. The damaged car was rebuilt on a new tub with Mk3 coupe bodywork (blue with a central white stripe), then did a couple of races and was put up for sale.
In 1993 it was sold to Richard Dodkins (UK), who did several years of European historic racing with the car until selling it to its current Portuguese owner in 1999, now already more than 15 years ago. The current owner has spared no expense to maintain the car at a very high standard and has campaigned it successfully for many years on the historic racing scene until a few years ago.
As can be seen from the above, SL73/109 has continuous, solid history from new and benefits from a 2013 FIA HTP.
The car is in very good and race-ready condition carrying a 5 litre SMB Chevy Lucas injected engine with only 3 race hours under its belt. The LG-600 5-speed gearbox has been completely overhauled. Seat belts and fire system are current, crack testing per Appendix K is done and the fuel cell is new. Spares consist of a spare radiator, oil coolers, rear suspension arms, drive shaft CV joints and spare wheels.
This impressive, long-term ownership Lola T70 Mk3 is eligible for all historic race events around the world including LeMans Classic and is priced-to-sell.More...
We have the pleasure to offer for sale this gorgeous 1978 Ensign N177 chassis MN09.

Ensign was founded by Morris Nunn (hence the MN in the chassis number) who also carried out design duties during the first two seasons of the team's existence. Nunn would later go on to be a prominent chief engineer in the American-based Champ Car series, winning championships with drivers Alex Zanardi and Juan Pablo Montoya in the late 1990s.

The car is sold without an engine (please note that a long stroke DFV is available as an option) and is in excellent condition throughout with everything (crack testing, fuel cell, fire extinguisher, harnesses, etc.) being fresh and/or current. MN09 benefits from a wide tub which accommodates most drivers and was fully rebuilt from the bare tub at the beginning of the 2015 season.
