Description

A totally original, unrestored and unmolested example with only 27 career races and a few autocrosses. The car has a continuous history including pro races driven by Johnny Parsons in the USAC series. The car has extensive spares including a pro-built engine and is very reasonably priced. It is certainly the least expensive way we know to go Formula 70 racing.

Note; the final two photos show the car as the current owner found it, with later Lola sidepods. The car also has two sports car noses.

History

Originally purchased by Tom Deth, a power boat racer who wanted to get into Indy racing. He crashed his first car, the sister car to ours, at Milwaukee. It was a very bad crash (he hit so hard he burst the seams on his driving suit) and destroyed the car except for the suspension on the left side and some other miscellaneous pieces. We have these pieces as our spares.

He bought our car from Haas since it was cheaper to buy new than fix his. His next race was at Phoenix and he was sponsored so he was forced to run every race. He could not get the car up to speed because he lost his courage due to the crash. He asked Johnny Parson to drive the car. Parson said yes only if his name was on the car. That is why Parson's name is on the spare long engine cover.

The car was then sold to J.X. Palms who bought it as a back up for his son's March. J.X. sold it to Dave Keenon when they realized they would never need the Lola. The car then raced successfully in SCCA. The car was clocked at 155 MPH at Road America. The car was bought from Robert George in 1989. He sold the car because of continual clutch problems. The current owner found the car had the wrong throw-out bearing and collar. After changing these he has never had any problems. The owner removed the Bertils 150 HP motor and installed a Type IV motor for autocrossing and track days.
