  • 2002 De Dion 200 hp SB 100 Kit

    I am selling my unassembled 2002 de Dion Caterham 7 with SB 100 reg.
    Most of you know I got the slightly bent chass from Rod
    Swanson. It is now restored with a short front and side panels from Arch.
    The engine is a 2.0 Zetec from Autocourse, ported and
    cams by Esslinger. Very similar to Brads motor. I had the cams
    checked at Schneider, 294 deg .4 lift so equivalent to
    Kent 12's. I guess about 200 + hp with carbs. Raceline sump, RMSCI
    bell housing, T- 9 checked by my local trans guy.
    I have the wide track front sus for it also.
    I have most of the parts, I can email a complete list of what
    is included and what is missing and pictures, see list below.
    Asking $ 20,500 will post on ebay at noon today.
    I would prefer to sell it in CA. I have been autoxing my FMod Solo Vee
    and have another bent 7 that I am building. Soo I would like this car
    to go to a good home.
    Cheers Rod

    Below is the text from the ebay add

    Raceline sump
    many new parts

    Price $ 20,500

    Most of the parts to complete this car are included. See below
    I believe this list to be mostly complete but the buyer will satisfy her / himself
    with the accuracy of the list. I estimate $ 6,500 should complete the
    car and ? hours. I was building it for myself but now have another project.
    The chassis was damaged in the front right ( pass ) corner.
    It has been repaired by a professional
    race / sand car builder / fabricator. It was checked for
    level and length and is within 1 / 16 of spec. The side panels
    are new as is the bonnet and scuttle. Most of the used parts are
    near new , to very good condition.
    The engine is an Autocourse Ford 2.0 Zetec motor
    with cams a head that have been modified for a race series
    by Esslinger Engineering. 10.5 - 1 compression ratio, the intake is seriously ported and it
    has Esslinger cams, about 294 deg duration, it will idle.
    A similar car - engine with efi and throttle bodies but is putting
    out about 210 at the flywheel. I estimate about 200 hp at the flywheel with 2 x 45 mm webers.

    Note. this will be a seriously fast car, under hard acceleration
    when the motor comes on the cam it will spin street tires
    in all gears, I have driven the above mentioned car at competition events so I have first hand knowledge.
    In other words do not punch the throttle at any time on any public road. It will go sideways.
    If you are not an experienced driver of performance cars either do not buy it or treat it
    with a great deal of respect.
    If the purchaser is in the San DIego area I will help sort the car at the SDR-SCCA autocross events.
    Please contact me with any questions.

    Buyer to pick up in person. The chass will fit in a small pickup weighs about 150 lbs
