This 1970 Lola T200 has gone through a professional ground up restoration in 2009 - 2010. There is only one race on the fresh Parisey motor. The chassis was torn down, crack-checked, aligned and painted. It has a polished and plated suspension with new shocks and springs. A Hewland Mark 8 transaxle that was rebuilt by Taylor Engineering, new calipers, lines, rod ends, bolts, chassis spares, a new fuel cell and a spare motor. A new set of wheels with new Dunlops are included as well as a spare set of minilights. A current 12 volt Transponder, Fire system and fresh belts are also included.
Current VSCDA, SCCA and MC logbooks.
Historic Race Car took care of the chassis repair, crack testing and repair. Very little repair was needed. Some junctions had developed small cracks and those were all repaired with the correct silver braise.
All components were taken off the chassis, nickel plating stripped, crack tested and renickeled. Uprights all passed the crack testing.
After the car was reassembled, and mated up to its engine and trans, we set up the chassis to a neutral set up.
The owner took it out once to race and was very pleased. He did get the Reynard just before the restoration was finished on the Lola, and likes the faster and more modern car, hence this absolute perfect Vintage Ford is for sale for far less than the owner has invested in it.
As stated, we are not in the business of selling cars. But as a service we do mediate for customers on their behalf, as long as the car is up to our own standards.
This Crusader certainly is, and I am pleased to say that our mediation resulted in the sale of this car. Health reasons caused an end to the sellers racing career, and now somebody else is going to enjoy the Crusader on the US track.
