Banks Europa 62 – 11/1/13

The car for sale is a Banks Europa Type 62 S currently undergoing a full professional race car build with the aim of making it a street legal full blown race car that I will campaign in the 2014 race season; unless someone gives me a good offer. The car will be able to participate in modern road racing classes as well as historic race vintage classes.

As you will see below this car is still able to move in the direction of a street car but a few weeks from now there will be a full roll cage in it, so now is the time to let me know if you are interested in it.

The project car:

I acquired this project car from a Lotus car collector who was not able to complete it – now I will be finishing it to racing specs.

When I bought the Banks Europa it already had the Banks Type 62 S body on top of a full rolling Banks chassis (steering, brakes, pedal set, suspension, fuel cell, engine, transaxle etc.) as you can see in the first 2 photos.

Due to being badly stored a professional shop has just completed a 40 hour overhaul on the glass bodywork:

All age/sun related cracks repaired

Key areas prone to stress under high speed have been reinforced to eliminate flex (nose section, A pillars, engine bay etc.)

The body is now primed and ready for paint, so the price is no longer $4k and I am not interested in selling it separately.

If you are interested in the whole car here are some more details:

The engine setup is longitude but with a modern drive train made up of a Lotus Elise/Exige engine and a 5-speed Porsche transaxle behind it. All the custom work has been done to match up engine and transaxle and there is a brand new clutch in the setup.

My racing shop inspected the engine and the rod bearing wear indicated it is a very very low miles engine so it is being prepared for racing.

I have added/acquired the following racing components for the engine:

ARP rod bolts

Billet racing oil pan fully baffled inside

Billet under drive racing belt pulleys

Removed a/c pump, moved alternator and prepared it for electric drive on the water pump setup (will release 12-18% horse power over typical Lotus Elise/Exige power)

Stainless exhaust manifold

Lotus Elise engine computer and engine wire harness

Toggle switch panel and wiring built to NASCAR standards (Robert Yates Racing)

AN-10 oil lines built to NASCAR standards (Roush Performance Racing)

The transaxle is currently open for inspection and looks in good shape but it is next on my work list to go through in detail. I did just buy a spare differential ( in racing you never know when that is needed).

A custom exhaust system is also next in line on my work list – no exhaust system at present

There are brand new 15 Diamond racing wheels and new street legal tires – due to being stored near the ocean for a while before I bought the car the wheels could use some shiny work.

The Frame:

The original spine chassis design and glass cockpit floor is not sufficient for racing standards, so I am currently working with an experienced race car manufacturer on building a strong properly triangulated light weight steel floor frame under the entire cock pit area that will support a full internal roll cage as well as adding a lot of extra strength to the entire chassis for better road handling.

The floor frame project is kicking off this week – so again if you want the regular street car now is the time to let me know.

The plan is for the entire body to be removable for ease of access/service in a style similar to what you see funny cars in drag race.

The car is for sale

As-is today, but weekly it keeps moving along to my design plan

Finished to your specs

The price tag is a discussion point we take over the phone or in person.

Europa Parts – 5/25/13

Brand new never installed Burled Walnut dash by Prestige Autowoods. Purchased for my Europa, this dash is absolutely stunning. It is not compatible to my car because I do not have the horizontal slides for the heat and vents. Original cost was about $600.

Have matching radio delete plate. Excellent, new, never installed. No damage, nicks or scrapes. Would like to get as close to $600 as possible.

Make me a REASONABLE offer.

Thanks, Jim 240-626-9032 fabvrgl#064;gmail.com

1974 Lotus Europa Twin Cam Special – 4/25/13

Primary VIN # (front half of car): 743536R ***Note: We can arrange for a Classic Certificate of Provenance to be shipped to the buyer from Lotus for each VIN or just the primary vin. We only ask that the buyer pays Lotus’ fee for the certificate and shipping.

Other VIN # (rear half of car): 744245R

This is a project car. DRIVETRAIN (motor and transmission) is not included. They have been removed. Body needs paint and primer. Some body work has been done. No major issues. A previous owner of the car took two ’74 Lotus Europa TCS and put the front half of one together with the rear half of the other (both cars were involved in accidents or were seen as better off cut in half. Both halves are definitely salvageable).

As far as we know, the body has been reinforced with metal bars where the two halves have been put together. The body is in good condition considering. There is bondo on the car. Most is there only to cover up chips and bumps from storage and age.

But that said, the car is a low mileage car. Both cars have less than 20K miles. One car had a little over 14K miles. The other had over 17K miles. Glass is all there, but the windshield has a broken top right corner.

We were informed that the windshield incurred the incident before being removed from its original packaging.

The beauty of this car, however, is that most of the important parts of the car (frame, suspension, brakes, etc.) have been rebuilt, replaced, or refurbished. None of the systems, however, have been tested. There are no fluids in the car.

But as pictures show, the car clearly has work done underneath the body. Everything looks very nice and mechanically sound. We had every intention of returning it to the street or turning it into a racecar, but other projects are taking precedence.

There is very little surface rust in places from the car sitting around with the previous owners.

There are lots of new parts that go with the car including a brand new carpet set and new seat upholstery (material ready to be installed on the seats). As far as I know, this is a fairly complete car minus the motor and transmission. Other parts are available for sale outside this thread, but most parts are doubles of what’s already being offered with this fairly complete car.

The last shot in the album shows the cleanliness and apparent quality of everything underneath the body. Again, the engine and transmission are no longer with the car.

$5K OBO. Reasonable offers are welcome!

If you have any questions or inquiries, please email me (lotlank#064;gmail.com ). Serious buyers only, please!

Shipping and shipping costs are responsibilities of buyer. International buyers are welcome!

PayPal or cash are preferred means of payment.

Cheers and thanks for looking!
