Description

1966 Lola T70 Mark II Spyder - Chassis no. SL71/22 is powered by a Chevrolet 355ci V8 and is equipped with a Hewland LG500 transaxle. It was the seventh of 32 Mk II Spyders to leave the Lola factory back in 1966. The first owner of the car was a noted racer of smaller- displacement Porsches. He raced this chassis but twice; his first effort being the fourth round of the 1966 Canadian-American Challenge Series. The Lola’s second race being the Can-Am's Round 6 at Stardust Raceway in Las Vegas. The SL71/22 went untouched for a number of years and then finally reappeared in the mid-1970s, complete but not in running condition. It sat on display in the Los Angeles area. Then, in 1986, the car found a new owner, who began a restoration before trading it to well-known Lola restoration specialist Mac McClendon of Santa Ana, California, who re-skinned the tub around its original steel bulkhead rings. In early 2012, McClendon sold the car, still under restoration, to the current owner, a vintage race car collector who in turn had the restoration completed, with the body being returned to its original color of white. Raced the complete 2012 season in SVRA at Watkins Glen, Mid-Ohio, and the Lola T70 Reunion at the Hawk at Road America. This incredible period-correct Lola T70 Mk II with a traceable history, current SVRA log-book and is ready to race or be enjoyed as a wild and super-fast street car.
