This week we invited Club Lotus Australia to join us in the Vintage Race Car Parts workshop for their monthly catch-up. We spent the evening chatting cars, talking about our Brabham BT14 restoration project and the other historic machinery in the workshop, and enjoying some particularly good company.
The restoration of the Brabham BT14, chassis FL-8-65, is progressing well in our workshop!
We’ve been working on the car for just over 12 months now, and if all goes to plan we will see it completed within the next six to eight weeks.
The frame has been checked for twists and bends and sent to the paint shop to be painted. With the fame painted the four corners were fitted including all hydraulics.
The engine and gearbox are in their final stages of assembly and will be ready for installation in the next four to six weeks.
So that’s where we’re up to currently. Keep an eye on the website and we’ll keep you up to date with its progress!
Since this is our first post on the subject, however, let’s take a look back to fill in some of the gaps and talk about how we got to this point.
