This Caterham Seven Super Sprint was reportedly purchased by the original owner as a kit in the summer of 1997 and was purchased by the third owner in 2018. The third owner listed the car for sale on BaT. Some of the enclosed pictures are from the BaT sale. The present owner acquired the car in December of 2019. Power is from a 1.7-liter Ford Kent Crossflow inline-four paired with a five-speed manual gearbox. The car is finished in polished aluminum with yellow accents and features dual Weber carburetors, five-point harnesses, a roll bar, heater, and more. This Seven is registered as a 1997 Caterham Super Sprint and is now offered with a full soft top, side curtains, an assembly manual, and a Clear Tennessee title.

Instrumentation consists of a 160-mph speedometer and a tachometer, as well as gauges to monitor oil pressure, coolant temperature, and fuel level. Prior to the seller’s purchase, a new five-digit odometer was installed to replace a faulty unit that showed approximately 9,900 miles when removed. An estimated 400 miles were added by the previous owner. The current milage shows 1432.

The Seller is asking $35,000 or best offer.
