Lotus 51A For Sale

1968 Lotus 51A Formula Ford for sale.

This is one of the very earliest Lotus 51 known to the Lotus Formula Ford Register, (lffr.com).

The early Lotus 51 Formula Fords were built using spare unused new Lotus 22 or Lotus 31 chassis. It was only later that Lotus decided to call their first Formula Fords Type 51.

The 1967 Lotus 31 F3 cars were constructed in two styles. The F3 series 1, was followed by the Series 2 that had iron brake calipers, and steel wheels.
It was in a Lotus 31 fitted with the Ford Cortina GT motor, complete with iron calipers and steel wheels that won the very first Formula Ford race in the hands of Ray Allen.

The car on offer is AM60, Chassis No 59.
 The body has just been restored and comes with a choice of Lotus 22 style engine cover or a later type 51 short engine cover.

In excellent condition, fitted with the Ford 1600 crossflow engine, and fitted with Avon tyres.   Health reasons forces a reluctant sale
 Priced at £36000.

The car is featured on the covers and in the book “Lotus Formula Fords”
