1969 Lotus 61 - SOLD

This is now SOLD. Search for similar items.


I have owned and raced this car in Corinthian Vintage Auto Racing from 2004-present. Included is the installed low-time engine and a spare with good internals but needs new block. This is the actual car featured on P. 148 in “The LOTUS Book Series III”. The car has been maintained to a high level and is ready to race. Brand new Konis on rear, Armstrongs on the front. Fresh calibrated springs. Two sets of wheels/tires (one steel/Dunlops, one Magnesium/Avons)).Axles are converted to CV joints. Body was recently refinished in the same livery as shown. Two full sets of gears included with spares. Trans was set up by Taylor. It is modified for hot weather racing with a larger capacity custom aluminum radiator and heat shielded ducting for the oil cooler. This car fits drivers to 6’1” tall and has an appropriately taller roll bar.


I have history from 1992. Raced in SW US since then with 3 owners during that period prior to my ownership. Documented bare-frame restoration in nineties and maintained to a high standard since.Performance Data
