A correctly shaped and drilled 18 gauge mild steel flat bracket to hold the windshield wiper motor on a Seven. It needs 2 easy folds in the metal (which I can mark for the purchaser, plus supply a drawing if necessary), and is then fusion or bronze welded to the left hand side top of the frame and dash structure (again, I can provide the measurements and a photo if necessary). The plate is correctly drilled to mount the windshield wiper motor. I had it made as a spare (copied from a Lotus Seven original) when I was contemplating rebuilding (or attempting to rebuild) my original frame, but never got around to shaping it or having it welded on. $10.00 U.S. plus postage.

1970 Ford Cortina Workshop Manual. Soft cover. Very well used. Has a few oil and grease marks on some of the pages, but contains all the necessary strip down and re-assembly information - especially the specifications on the Crossflow engine, 116E gearbox, rear axle, water pump, electrical etc., etc. All the pages are in the manual, and none are loose. It is the Canadian/U.S. version, and has the Weber 32DFM settings for Canada. I've had this manual since 1973 when it came with my Seven. It is much better than a Haynes manual for doing your own service work. SOLD.

"Lotus the Sports Racing Cars" by Anthony Pritchard. Design - Development - Racing Histories. Has a couple of photo pages on the Lotus 6 and 7 plus all the early Lotus sports racing cars up to the Lotus 30 and 40. Very little documented information on the Seven however. Still in its original plastic cover (over the top of the book cover) as supplied by the publisher. $50.00 U.S. plus postage.

"Legend of the Lotus Seven" by Dennis Ortenburger. Well used first edition of this informative book on the Lotus Seven and Caterham 7. SOLD.

Soft cover book "Tuning Side Valve Fords" by Bill Cooper. A Cars and Car Conversions/Speed Motorbooks publication. Full of valuable tuning information regarding the old side valve Ford engines. Black and white photos of racing Sevens (mostly Series 1 cars), plus Len Terry's 'Terrier' racing sports car, and others. Found in an auto parts store in condition as shown. All pages still attached, but cover worn. $10.00 U.S. plus postage.

1 only lower chassis cycle wing mounting bracket (clamp) originally fitted to Series 2 Sevens, and some early fusion welded (Universal Radiator) Series 3 chassis. It was used on early Series 2 cars for the cycle type wings at their lower rear chassis attachment point (and possibly Series 1?). It is 3/4" o.d. by 3" long by 18 gauge with two fusion welded split tubes on top to clamp the wing attachment rod. On the Series 3 cars these clamps were never used. They were still fitted to some later Series 2 and early Series 3 chassis supplied by UniRad even when the chassis was equipped with the 'clamshell' front wings. Note: This clamp can be welded on the right hand side of the chassis to hold a bracket for a remote oil filter for example. SOLD.

1 piece of 1 1/2" by 3/4" by 36" long rectangular 16 gauge mild steel upper seat belt mounting tube. This can be cut to exactly fit the upper rear area behind the seat back between the 2 rear damper (shock absorber) mounts to allow the fitting of 4 or 6 point safety belt harnesses. The tube comes with 4 of 1 1/4" long threaded tubes to take the standard seat belt bolt size used by Lotus and Caterham. These threaded tubes have not been fitted as it depends on your chosen location for the upper belt fixings. Also the tube is longer than the space between the rear damper top mounts. This distance seems to vary somewhat on various Lotus chassis and can be custom cut to provide a tight fit for a good weld. When bronze or fusion welded in place, it can be made water tight and not subject to rusting as per other methods of upper seat belt fixing that are available. $47.00 U.S. plus postage (can be sent by post as the weight and size are not excessive).

4 new, unused Dzus upper nose cone mounting brackets for sale. These are drilled to take the Dzus spring and formed to take the Dzus pin. They have the side angled reinforcement as per the Lotus top mounting originally fitted. $4.00 U.S. for 2 brackets plus postage, or the 4 for $6.00 U.S. plus postage.

1 pair of aluminum anti-roll bar clamps for sale. These are accurately drilled and have the grease nipple threaded hole. These originally came from Arch Motors as spares, and are as new, unused. These fit on the upper front of the chassis to take the 1/2" diameter anti-roll bar, but can also be used for fitting an anti roll bar on the rear of the chassis if required. $30.00 U.S. plus postage.

1 new/unused, bolt of heavy duty black vinyl basket weave pattern seat cloth material. This cloth is identical to the type used by Lotus on the Series 3 Seven. There are no 'weld' marks on the cloth as this can be added as required by an upholstery company. There is sufficient material to make 2 sets. The bolt measures 10 feet by 5 feet, but if there are 2 requests for sufficient material to make one set, I will divide the material in half (i.e. 5 feet by 5 feet). The price of the full roll is $80.00 U.S., or $40.00 U.S. for each half bolt. Shipping extra. Can be shipped by mail or courier - depending on size and weight (i.e. if sent as one bolt or two).

Caterham Seats. These are unused and as new. The seat back is 36" wide by 24" high. The tunnel opening is 11" by 4 1/2" at the front, but cleverly manufactured to be 12" by 6 1/2" at the rear to allow for various tunnel dimensions and the flexible vinyl allows for this. The seat units are 15" by 19" and taper to 13 1/2" at the rear to allow for the lower lap belt fastenings. Mick at Redline U.K. advised me in 2013 that if you can find them or have them manufactured these days, they would cost in the region of 500.00 U.K. pounds (approx. $650.00 U.S. at the exchange rate posted today). These seat units are priced at $450.00 U.S. including shipping to Canada or the U.S.

1 Classic Instruments fully adjustable fuel sender 0 to 90 ohms. 5 bolt fixing for a Seven. Some older Serck tanks (like mine) were 5 bolt fixing. Classic Instruments sell a line of vintage gauges to go with this unit (not supplied - see their web site for details). $40.00 U.S.

2 Lotus green and yellow key rings with black leather fob. $7.00 U.S. each plus postage. 2 Lotus green and yellow jacket patches SOLD. 2 Lotus black and silver jacket patches SOLD

1 AC Delco (U.K.) new, old stock, Fuel Sender for sale. This is the correct 0 to 30 ohms range fuel sender for the 2" (52 m.m.) AC fuel gauges (not supplied). The correct fuel gauges occasionally come up for sale on e-bay. The sender is 6 bolt fixing and in the correct series for the Lotus Seven Series 3, but can be adapted for use with a Series 2 as it is the correct working height and depth for the Serck or the Axminster Specialist Panel tanks for the Seven. Axminster can provide an adapter if you wish to modify your Series 2 tank to take a fuel sender. $45.00 U.S.

Two brand new/unused VDO Instruments adjustable fuel senders. These are fully adjustable for height and float length with 6 bolt fixing suitable for the Lotus 7/Caterham 7 fuel tank and have a range of 0 to 90 ohms to match VDO fuel gauges in the same ohm range (gauges not supplied). SOLD. NOTE: VDO were used as a replacement by Caterham for AC then Smiths Instruments senders and gauges. VDO manufactures a line of vintage looking gauges as well as a modern range. They also manufacture a conversion ring to adapt from 6 bolt to 5 bolt fixing.
