Designed and built in 1967 – 68, as a result of some FIA rule changes. This is one of 17 cars, all exported to the USA and sold via the Lola agent Carl Hass. Sadly The Hass organisation do not share any of their records.

Number 7 is believed to have been bought by Jerry Rosbach a Honda dealer in the mid-west USA, what race results we can find suggest he did not race it much or finish highly, he is also known to have owned a T70. At some point the car was crashed and from the spare parts with the car when we purchased it, it looks as if an attempt to rebuild it was made, and failed! Both the engine and  gearbox had disappeared but all other parts remained along with the all-important chassis plate.

The car arrived back in the UK via an eBay sale in the early 2000’s the came to us in 2007, since then and March 2012 the car underwent a full restoration by Jonathan Hall. The aim was to put it back to as it was when it came out of the Lola factory. The car now has full FIA papers, and MSA log book for hill climbs and sprints.

The site contains pictures of the project from start to the first race at Oulton Park in August 2012. As and when we discover more the site will be updated, we have also set up a mini register for all the known T140’s, if anybody out there knows anything about this car, or the whereabouts of any of the other not mentioned please contact us.
