Caterham Super Seven, 1973
Caterham Super Seven series 3, year 1973. Exterior colour green with a yellow ‘nose’ and a black leather interior. This tremendous Caterham Super Seven was built by Willem Boterman who was the Dutch Caterham representative in the 1970’ies. Boterman imported 40 Caterham cars to the Netherlands. This beautiful Caterham Super Seven was beautifully maintained and serviced; the car is in excellent condition! Ten years ago, the car was extensively restored ant the engine capacity was enlarged up to 1700 cc. With a specially up-rated cylinder head, a fast road camshaft and two double 40mm Weber carburettors the engine delivers 118 brake horsepower. The 118 ‘horses’ have to propel only 540 kilogrammes; very interesting sports car figures indeed! The car was first road registered in the year 1981. The chassis number is WB2930, ‘WB’ are the initials of Willem Boterman. This fine Caterham features beautiful light alloy five-spoke ‘Revolution’ wheels. This is a fantastic ‘pocket-rocket’ in excellent condition!
