    Default Replica S2 Vintage Racecar

    I bought this rolling chassis from Automotive Restorations/Vintage Racing Services back in December of last year. It was fabricated from original Series 2 plans with some of the typical reinforcements to strengthen the weak original design. I had hoped to build it up as a vintage racecar with my son or son-in-law, but they both have young families and not a lot of extra time, so it doesn't look like that's going to happen any time soon. With the arrival of my 310S coming in the next couple weeks this one is going on the back burner. Here are a few of the details:

    Chassis: Series 2 RHD replica, single hoop rollbar

    Body: Caterham nose/bonnet/scuttle, 8" rear fenders (BRG), aluminum panels with some work still to be completed

    Front Suspension: Koni Classic shocks, fabricated control arms, Spitfire spindles/hubs, .700" sway bar

    Rear Suspension: Fabricated trailing arm with panhard rod, Spax shocks?

    Steering: RHD Rack & Pinion

    Brakes: Girling 3/4" master cylinders with balance bar
    (F) Spitfire calipers with slotted rotors
    (R) 9" Finned aluminum drums

    Rear End: Alfa Romeo, 4.10:1, 80/20 LSD, custom machined Moser axles

    Wheels: 6 x 13 steel, 3.75 x 4 PCD

    Tires: Hoosier Street TD, 205/60-13

    Fuel Cell: ATL FC160, 6 gal, Billet Cap

    Gauges: Choice of AutoMeter Ultra-Lite or Stack Vintage

    Engine: TBD

    Gearbox: TBD
