Further Information

The Car Barn are very pleased to offer this lovely Caterham 7 for sale.

It is finished in Silver with a black interior. 

The car has the 1.6 8v Vauxhall engine fitted, which has been upgraded with a big valve head. This engine was unique to the Caterham seven and is now getting quite sort after. It produced just over 100bhp at the time with the standard head. Caterham took the fuel injection off and fitted a pair of Webber carbs instead, so it has a great induction noise.

It has a huge folder full of receipts and old MoT tests dating back many years. 

As part of the preparation at the Car Barn we have given the car a full service including a new cambelt kit. 

There are a number of used spare parts that will come with the car, including replacement nose cone, front wings, and the original cylinder head and camshaft.  It also has a full set of weather gear.

Jonathon's comments:

'This car is so much fun to drive, you would think with having the 1.6 Vauxhall engine it may feel a little bit slow, but it I can assure you with a 0-60 time of just 6.2 seconds it certainly doesn't. The torque of this engine gives it a very different to feel to the equivalent k-series cars of the time. Condition wise the car is good for its age, the odd mark here and there but nothing you wouldn't expect on a car of this type.' 

All cars sold at the Car Barn come with a 145 point inspection and a 6 month warranty provided in house.
