FORMULA 27 V8 SOLD
Formula 27 cars were produced as Lotus Seven style kits with a wide or narrow body to suit a variety of engines. The wider bodied version was ideally suited to the fitment of Rover’s superb V8 engine, and this example was the factory’s V8 demonstrator, known affectionately as ‘Thor’
As well as being factory built this F27 has benefitted from the more recent fitment of a John Eales 4.0 engine. Balanced with ported and gas flowed heads, a Crane hydraulic cam, Edelbrock manifold and Holley four barrel carb this superb power plant produces approximately 270 bhp and sounds awesome!
The car is very well trimmed, has a hood and sidescreens, and rides on very attractive BBS split rim alloy wheels shod with Pirelli P7 tyres. The recorded mileage is less than 1,500 miles which although believed to be genuine by the current owner can only be verified from an incomplete collection of MOT certificates.
Although the car has been standing for some months and would benefit from some minor cosmetic improvements it remains in good overall driving condition with a current MOT. A spectacular road and/or track car at a remarkably low price.
