Purchased by the vendor in 2019 as a category S insurance loss the vendor has subsequently repaired 'Y38LBW' back to its former glory with a new nose cone, anti-roll bar and aluminum radiator with the invoices for the parts included.

Automotive genius though he was, one imagines that the late Colin Chapman would be rather surprised that the Lotus Seven he launched at the 1957 Earls Court Motor Show, and then sold the manufacturing rights for in 1973, was still being built, bought, raced and enjoyed the world over, courtesy of Caterham. While few, if any, of the components are interchangeable between the Lotus and today's Caterhams, the Chapman-penned concept and general configuration remain unaltered and, though many times copied, have never been bettered. Power has been supplied by a range of engines over the years
