LolaT642e Formula Ford built in 1983 as an update to the successful 640 FF of 1982. It has now just completed a ground up, last nut and bolt rebuild/restoration. It is ready for the new season.
Chassis shot blasted, rivet holes welded and powder coated, then repaneled with Dural.
All new suspension wishbones and 95% rose joints, plus new front hubs and wheel bearings all way round
It has a 4 speed Mk 9 Hewland gearbox, with a condition report from PDS. The Engine freshly rebuilt by Paul Gardner. Run time after dyno setup was 1 hour to run it in. The head is a Neil Bold machined item.
The tyres are ACB10s, all used with Weller wheels freshly powder coated.
A copy of the Lola specification sheets and component drawing come with the car
The front and rear body sections are original and looking inside they tell a story of use, the top, round front and seat are new sourced from TMW moulding ( holder of all Lola molds)
All new plumbing for brakes and water with a new bespoke radiator, and the addition of a removable steering wheel (for all BFBs)
The LolaT640 was the first FF to introduce aerodynamics hence the long narrow body free of clutter onboard suspension. Price ONO
