I have two ( 2 ) ’96 Lola Champ Car / Indy Cars ….Cosworth XB and XD engines. I have Two fully prepared race ready 96 Lola CART / Indy Cars with correct Ford Cosworth engines. The current owner planned to race the cars, hence the cars have gone through an extensive rebuild. They both had No-expenses spared restoration with chassis up, nut and bolt rebuild and every component is either new and/or crack tested. Partial list includes: Crack check gears - Sonic clean oil coolers, radiators, gearbox coolers. All new suspension studs, chassis studs, crack check, all suspension, gears, steering rack, exhaust system. Rebuild fuel cell - dyno test shock absorbers - inspect all wiring looms and wiring, Full race prep, alignment and set up for track or racing. Cars are AS-new and completely gone through with shake down time only. These are NOT show cars, but in fact TRUE period correct race cars down to every last detail. These cars are without question the lowest mile cars around with one having only 6 races in total (never crashed) from new. They offer an invaluable opportunity to own and drive a fully sorted Indy / CART Car which is ideally suited for the Boss Racing Series worldwide as a front runner. These cars are the most ideal track or race cars with all the speed, huge downforce and safety in one car. 96 Champ Cars were designed to bounce off walls at over 200 MPH and protect the driver (full carbon fiber monocoque and bodywork). They were designed as customer cars that have to last a full season of racing and enormous amounts of testing. Not to be replaced every 4 races like a formula 1 car. And parts are readily available, unlike all the one-off parts for a F1 car, and if you do find the F1 parts you probably can’t afford to buy them. These Champ Cars are 100% full race prep and can be easily maintained, unlike many of the rolling chassis cars advertised. Currently in period correct Newman/ Haas Budweiser livery. Fresh Ford XB and XD Cosworth engines Lola six speed sequential gearboxes - fully rebuilt Öhlins and Koni Shocks - fully dyno Pi Dash and Data acquisition These Cars are being offered at a fraction of restoration cost and being sold due to ongoing medical conditions. Again, both cars have been professionally completely rebuilt and are track ready. Car 1 has a fresh Cosworth XB & Koni shocks, and Only 6 races in the 1996 season TOTAL…….$97,000 Car 2 has a fresh Cosworth XD & Ohlins shocks….………………………………………………..$125,000 There is also a comprehensive spares package with many parts being brand new. Some of the spares are….complete front nose / wings…..rear wing….wheels…..gears …….support equipment The cost of this package is $5,000 per car
One car with the Cosworth XB motor was new for Indy in 1996 and then used at 5 more races that year. It was never crashed, and has not raced since that time.
