1962 Lotus Super 7 Series II Genuine Lotus manufactured Super 7 and titled as a 1963 Lotus Featherweight, two-seat racing car that is road legal Recent race competition restoration Cosworth Ford Dry sump 1600cc OHV four-cylinder engine (code 116E) with dual 40DCOE Weber sidedraft carbs Triumph Herald four-speed manual transmission with 4.5 gearing White exterior with blue racing stripes Claret leatherette interior and four-point racing seatbelts and Smith gauges Aluminum body, tube chassis, body panels, fiberglass nose, engine, transmission and live rear axle Braced rollbar, Simpson racing seatbelts, Sparco steering wheel 13 6 Minilite wheels with Toyo Proxes RA1 tires 1973, Lotus sold the Super 7 s rights to Caterham, which still produces the Super 7 today Simplify, simplify are some people s motto and it seemed to fit Colin Chapman. His Lotus Super Seven exemplifies this minimalism. The Super 7 is a simple, fast sports car that barely weighs more than half a ton. Production started in 1957 and continued under the Lotus name until 1972. The following year, Lotus sold the Super 7 s rights to Caterham, which still makes cars. Chapman designed the Super Seven, renowned for its performance via its light weight and simple nature. This example is finished in white with blue racing stripes. The paint and trim are in overall very good order, as is the nearly vertical windshield. The bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is very tidy, and the Super Start battery appears new. Out back is a full-sized spare tire mounted on a matching wheel. This racer rolls on Toyo Proxes RA1 radials, size 205/60R13, front and rear. Each tire is mounted to a period correct 13x6 Minilite wheel, painted grey. Up front and behind are Girling hydraulic brakes, nine inches in front plus a mechanical handbrake and rack-and-pinion steering. Under the bonnet is a dry sump 1.5L Cosworth Ford OHV four-cylinder engine (code 116E) with added external oil pump and dual 40DCOE sidedraft Weber carburetors that puts out 125 horsepower. Backing this engine is a Triumph Herald four-speed manual transmission with a 4.5:1 final drive. Remember, this two-seater only weighs about 1,100 pounds. Inside, the seats are finished in Claret leatherette with matching headrests and look great. To enhance the driving experience, each seat has four-point Simpson racing belts. There is not carpet but there are floormats. A three-spoke aftermarket Sparco steering wheel with a leather rim. The instrument panel, with Smiths tachometer and speedometer, is in similar condition, as are the console and floor-mounted shifter. The major attraction behind the Super Seven was its dual nature; a road legal car that could be used for club racing, which underscored its popularity. More than 2,500 units were sold originally. While the car has an aluminum body, a tube chassis, body panels, engine, transmission and live rear axle, the nose is made of fiberglass.
