The Lotus 7 S2 in the Hemmings ad is essentially replicating a very special run of (thought to be) 13 Lotus 7 S3s in 1970 with a 1600cc Ford Crossflow engine with a special  Holbay head and internals.  It has been referred to as a  'Holbay S' engine.  120hp which was excellent for the period.   The Kesgrave 3000 reference is just part of the standard engine build plate labelling of post-65 Holbay engines.    You will see that cam cover engine build plate appearance on a lot of Holbay engines that went into Lotus cars.  Correct original finish of the rocker cover would have been black crackle with the raised ridging and lettering polished metal - no colors.  The Hemmings ad talks about it being built to a 3000 but thats misleading - it is still a 1600cc.  

 

Hexagon had a genuine Lotus 7 S3 Holbay S for sale not that long ago - ad here

LOTUS SUPER 7 S3 HOLBAY S | Hexagon, Classic and Modern Cars (hexagonclassics.com)

 

Any prospective purchaser should verify the block and head casting numbers as being correct.  There are not a lot of photos to work with but you should be able to positively identify via the casting numbers whether a standard crossflow head or the Holbay worked head is on the car.  Block looks like a standard Ford 105E block which is correct, hopefully with the upgraded internals.  You can buy those rocker covers on Ebay for not much money but it would be genuinely be special if it still had the Holbay special cylinder head - that would justify the price premium.  Otherwise you just have a regular crossflow with a fancy rocker cover.  

 

Still a very attractive and well presented Lotus 7 for sale.

 

As an aside, Holbay was formed by John Read and his older brother John Dunnell (2 of 9 siblings).  Paul Dunnell is Roger's son and continues in the business of building engines for race cars and se7en type vehicles today in the UK - Dunnell Engineering.  Quite a few Birkins in the USA received Dunnell Zetec and Duratec engines.  I believe he has the ability to verify Holbay engines if needed.

Wow - such a brilliant response.  I am in awe of your knowledge.  Spent a couple of nights on Google and could find nothing on the Holbay 3000.  I agree the advertisement is a little misleading.  I called the seller who said he manages a collection for someone I cannot recall, an older guy in the area.  Anyway I love the look of the car, IMHO just a beautiful patina and style. Perfect.

The confusion over Kesgrave is that it is a town in the UK.  Holbay was named for the business' original location in HOLlesley BAY on the UK south coast. Later they were reported to have moved the business just up the road to Martlesham Heath in Suffolk on the UK south coast.   Kesgrave is the village right next door - not sure why it appears on the build plate as Holbay I understood were located at the former WW2 airport in Martlesham Heath.  I have no idea what the '3000' on the data plate is supposed to represent.   The same engine build plate also appeared on later run Lotus Ford Cortina engine installations.  

 

I rebuilt a Holbay Lotus Ford Cortina engine a very long time ago.  Its amazing how much trivia/drivel I can retain from that when I cannot remember what I am supposed to do 10 minutes from now!
