    A recent restoration has taken place to the multi-award winning Lola T165/70 Custom. The car was traded in on a race car 20+ years ago. This car traces its heritage back to the legendary "Banzai Runners" days. A band of rich renegades with a club. Entry into the club was by pulling a verified 200 Mph on the LA Freeways at 3:00am. The only cars to qualify we are told were the Lola's and GT40's. Its show history speaks for itself. Custom built one off Concourse car. T165 chassis with a widened T70 MKIII Gullwing body. 462 CID Big Block Chevy, Inglese Weber’s, Magneto timing, ZF DS25-2 transmission, Air Conditioning, Magnesium wheel’s 17’ rears and 12’ fronts. Lola 3B Le Mans style brakes. The awards and trophies would accompany the T165.

    Lola T70 Mk.I - SL70/05 - 1965

    SL70/05 was one of three Ford based Mk.I cars. The car carries probably the longest documented history and was primarily based in South Africa with a lengthy documented race history – see History. Doug Serrurrier set the lap Sports record lap record in this car. The car was owned by Sterling Moss’s company for a period.

    The car was raced in the Wall’s Ice cream livery with sign writing on the back said ‘Walls - Stop Me and Buy One’.

    The car was known as the T70/140 as late in the SA history it was disassembled and the parts used for a T140 Formula A. A host of parts including a complete original Mk.II body and various Formula A/5000 parts accompany the car. The car has its original set of Gurney Weslake heads to enable a suitable Ford 289 engine to be rebuilt as per the original motor or could be updated with a Chevy depending on the intended purpose.

    The car has been completely restored awaiting the final configuration of the engine to either the original Gurney Westlake Ford or probably a more reliable Chevrolet configuration for racing.

    CanAm Lola T163 - SL160/10 - 1970

    Developed at the same time as the Mk.IIIB, the T160 underwent rapid development resulting in the T165. The outcome was a Mk.IIIB style chassis, with aerodynamically enhanced body and optional spoiler wing.

    This T163 has been completely disassembled and restored to its original specification.
