Hi Lola enthusiasts,
I buy and sell for collectors and I am representing this fantastic Lola MK1 that many of you may be familiar with.
This is Lola BR-4, an amazing piece of history. Hillclimbed and raced in the UK from birth where it was noted as an “Indecently fast sports car driven by David Boshier Jones” before moving to the states. The current owner has owned the car for 25 years where it was raced in VSCCA, SVRA, VDC, VRG. A ton of spares come with the car including the original engine and wheels. The new wheels are Alumag and were reproduced by Don Orosco when he was restoring his Lola. The current engine is a 1220 (full race, stage 5 cam, steel crank (Carrillo)and rods (Farnden, Webers). This Lola was road registered in the UK before coming to the states and there is a copy of the MOT.
