  • FS: 2005 Caterham 7 SV Roadsport

    2005 Caterham 7 SV Roadsport
    Purchased new and fully assembled from Jeff Sloan at British Auto Specialist in Fort Worth, TX (Caterham dealer) in August 2007. This chassis was shipped in early 2005, and was purchased by Jeff from the Nearn family as part of a group of 12 cars right before they sold Caterham Cars to Ansar Ali and his compatriots. It has an Arch frame. Original specification:
    Black full paint
    Red leather seats, tunnel top
    Red interior panels
    New SVT Zetec motor with Raceline sump
    Lightened flywheel
    T-9 5 speed transmission
    Kent camshafts
    ZF limited slip differential/3.92 final drive
    Triple pass aluminum racing radiator
    AP racing brake upgrade
    British Auto Specialist sump skid plate
    4 point racing harnesses
    FIA roll bar w/petty strut
    Momo quick release steering wheel
    Adjustable spring perches
    Interior insulation kit
    Jet hot ceramic coated exhaust
    Heater shut off valve
    Full weather gear (heated windscreen, hood, side doors with armrests)
    Hood bag
    Carbon fiber dash, stone guards, sill protectors
    Aero fuel filler cap
    Full tonneau cover
    Perspex wind deflectors w/bag
    Spare wheel and tire
    Luggage rack
    Indoor car cover

    Modifications made since purchase:
    Custom engine tune by Ed Senf/Balanced Performance
    Adjustable exhaust cam gear
    180 degree thermostat
    Replaced distributor, spark plug wires with direct coil packs
    Upgraded exhaust mounts, added center exhaust mount
    CFM Motorsports aluminum DSI manifold lever
    Spa catch tank routed in line from PCV valve back to intake
    Philips X-Treme Power headlamp bulbs
    Mid Atlantic Caterham Serpentine belt reorientation kit
    Stack auxiliary gauges (mechanical oil pressure, electric stepper fuel and water temp)
    Samco silicone front radiator hoses
    Odyssey PC680 battery, billet aluminum hold down, trickle charger
    Cold air intake and plexiglass radiator air deflector (relocated battery, no bonnet cut)
    3M Clearshield on rear wings and stone guards
    Ceramic black Super 7 nosecone badge

    Diablosport Predator ECU programmer w/data logging, fault code reader
    Soft Bits for Sevens tunnel bag
    Walker St. Clair outdoor half car cover
    Removable passenger side cone catcher (mounts under body)
    CFM racing oil pump
    original distributor and mounting bracket
    wiper blades
    owners manual
    assembly manual

    I have also upgraded various small bits and pieces of the car, such as a better quality fuel neck hose, as I saw the need. The car has been autocrossed regularly, and maintained obsessively. Fluids are Mobil 1 5W30 engine oil, Redline MT90 in the transmission, and Redline 75W90 with friction modifier for the differential. I have a complete service history, as well as receipts for all purchases. The odometer reads 15,897 miles as of this post, and is correct. 5 Toyo R1R tires with approx 6/32 remaining tread keep it attached to the ground (well, 4 of them do. The 5th one just kind of hangs around in back). Blemishes are as follows: a paint chip about the size of a pinkie fingernail on the bonnet (due to a paint defect at time of manufacture), minor spider webs on the front wings at the fasteners, and 2 small dings right below the Caterham emblem on the rear valence. The car has always been garaged and covered, and gets wiped down after every use. The car has a Georgia "assembled vehicle" title. If one searches my posts on USA7s and the California Caterham Club, much of the car’s development and history can be seen.
    $35,950 obo.

            In this great weather, you should be driving it home. :) I look forward to your joining us on local blats, Nick.

              Thanks, I'm looking forward to the days ahead. The Seven was loaded onto the transporter last Friday and is now making the journey here. I hope to see it by Thursday or Friday.

              I should take the opportunity to thank the seller, Athens7, for being so great to work with from beginning to end. It's people like him that make our hobby so great.

                Based upon the specifications I think you bought a really good car. It would likely cost more than $60,000 to duplicate those specs. Hope to see it one day soon on a blat or autocross.

                And welcome to the lunatic fringe of sports car ownership!!!
