Just recently became aware of this forum and can help fill in one chassis number. I own Lotus 59/69 with a chassis stamping of 59 XF3-FB-35.
I bought it from Canada almost 6 years ago. It cam with a Canadian Automobile Sport Club Log book going back to 1974 when it was raced by Peter Dragffy as a Formula Ford. His last listed race is in 1977. The gentleman I bought it from had it since 1989 and he had bought it from Charles Le Clerc in Quebec city who had installed a Lotus twin cam engine and ran it aqs a Formula B. It is in that configuration now. It has been actively raced the last 5 years

I have a feeling this went on to Johnny Blades as I seem to remember it at Thruxton.

I am writing a book on my father in law. Johhny Blades.
perhaps he can help you with any questions you might like to ask.

I know a second opinion is always useful so, as I'm in here anyway, Race Report gives the 1970 Lotus 69s as:
Fittipaldi 69-F2-1
Ikuzawa 69-F2-2
Potocki 69-F2-3
Rindt and Solor-Roig 69-F2-4

anyone seen it?

Has anyone seen a Lotus 69 that had a narrowed track, with straight lower frame tubes, a March nose, 1600 BDA FT200? It has probably - if it still exists - been returned to original configuration. I would love to know about this.

I can fill in considerable detail about it's history.

Graham Hills Lotus 69

Just found this great thread - thank you to all the contributors, great read.

My car Vin 69 F2 5 was the works (Jochen Rindt )Graham Hill/John Miles car and I purchased directly from Pete Lovely's daughter upon Pete's passing in 2011. As many may already know, Pete installed a Formula One-specification, 3.0L Cosworth DFV V8 engine and ran it in the USA and Canadian Grand Prixs in 1971.

My understanding from Pete and his family was this car was bought direct from Bernie Ecclestone as Bernie was not only a partner with Jochen Rindt, but a manager as well - oh how the mighty grow from such humble beginnings :-). So it would seem natural that Bernie was the seller after Jochen's sad passing.

I do have plenty of pictures of the car when in Pete's hands later in life, but I would love to find some period pictures of Graham Hill and or John Miles in the car in 1970 or even Pete's 1971 Grand Prix exploits.

I have just found this one at Paul Ricard in 1970, which caused me to start searching again and found this page

Thanks in advance

Peter Gleeson

Lotus 71 - 69/8/F3

Search the History from Lotus 71 - 69 - 8-F3
First Driver: Manfred Mohr ( Vöhrenbach - Germany ) ?
Second Driver: Carlo Breidenstein - Germany
Than Willi Kahlenberg - Germany
But, where drives the car after Kahlenberg / After 1979 ??

regards Kale
