Mark 7 convertible on ebay in Qld.


This is a very reluctant sale of a my Bolwell Mk 7. 

The 186 engine has triple 45mm Delortos and cast iron headers with twin exhaust.  Sounds fierce beyond belief.

Starts on the key, with no noises or smoke.  Compression is great with all cylinders above 170  psi and oil pressure 60 psi.

The transmission is Toyota Supra 5 speed cast iron case.  This car drives and steers, but master brake cylinder and booster need overhaul, as there are no brakes.  Hand brake works well.

The HR holden front end has disc brakes and rack and pinion steering,  all in good condition.

The diff is a modified HR unit and has trailing arm suspension with adjustable coil overs.  Looks and feels tight.

The Lotus Elain style Y  frame chassis is in great condition with no rust or damage.

The body work requires numerous repairs and some cracks in fibreglass.  Easy repairs with todays epoxy and carbon veil. The drivers lower door hinge is badly worn and door drops when opened.  The bonnet requires a complete fibreglass as it has been sand blasted and the gel coat has gone.
Not a problem as we were going to reskin in alloy with power bulge similar to a Ferrari 275 GTB 4.
Rear boot lid is nicely made with bracing and stand and has drip rail to body.  The top is lifting at corners and needs repairs.
Front cortina indicators show signs of wear and one tailight needs replacing  ( Toyota Crown)

The convertible roof has been nicely made and the bows are adjustable and the roof and rear screen are in very good contion with no rips or tears.
Rear carpet in great shape and seat belts mounted to the rear or car.  Roll cage head rests are chromed, and show signs of flaking and rust.

The interior is factory fitted as it has the Nagari style dash and Lotus Europa style seats with removable padding.  All in great condition with no damage to dash or seats.  The gauges are Smiths , look great and work, but missing the speedo.
Easy to obtain as MGB or Triumph 2000 type.  Hand brake works well, floor mounted to drivers consul and has remote boot pull on drivers floor.

Wheels have rust on chrome and tyres need to go to the tip.

We where going to fully rebuild this and compete in hill climbs, but unfortunately divorce and money is why this car needs to be reluctantly sold.

 Approximately 1970 as it has the factory fitted Nagari style dash and Lotus Europa style seats.  Last registered in 1992.

This is the ultimate six cylinder holden component car and rare to see or buy.  ( this took me twenty years.)

Anyhow, feel free to call for more details or pics.  I check my emails infrequently due to poor service, so a call to discuss is better.

The car can be viewed any time and can be inspected on a hoist.

I am open to serious and reasonable offers, but have put a reserve on this car to cover my costs.

Call me David, 0415 730 957 for more details.

I am an honest and genuine ebayer and have been here since 1998 with 100% positive feedback.

I can assist with pick up and frieght.  Any more info on this car will be posted and appreciated.

Reserve not met - yet.
