1978 LOMAX 'FG' PROTOTYPE 'BOAT TAIL' SPECIAL For Sale
Lomax FG Prototype Historic Sports Special
An opportunity to purchase an absolutely unique vehicle. Lomax production started in 1985 with a very popular three wheel model based on the Citroen 2 CV. In 1999 a prototype for a new 4 wheel model was produced. The FG was built on a 1978 2CV chassis and engine (matching numbers). The Lomax FG was to be offered with an aluminium body (as opposed to the previous fibreglass 223 /224 models). Sadly the car never reached full production stage and so this steel bodied prototype remains the only example of the Lomax FG in existence.
Since 1999 the FG has only had two previous custodians (including the original engineer who built the car). The previous owner had extensive work carried out by reknown 2CV performance specialists Sparrow automotive. The car comes with a huge history file of MOTs, invoices, etc. and great provenance including Lomax launch publicity, registered patent documents, extensive build photo file and an original copy of a six page magazine launch article.
The previous owner attended Prescott hill climb and the 90th anniversary of Citroen at Le Mans with the car and it was a well known regular at numerous events across the UK. This year is the 100th anniversary of Citroen – this would be a great car to attend the anniversary celebrations in Coventry in May / June 2019.
Be in no doubt this is a totally one off prototype with great provenance and beautiful patina. The 'boat tail' is beautifully crafted and is a very practical storage area! The car is great fun to drive and stops and starts very will indeed. It turns head like no other classic car I have ever owned. This is a road road legal historic vehicle which no longer requires tax nor MOT. However, the car will come with 12 months MOT for peace of mind.
It is very difficult to value this car so I am looking for sensible offers from serious buyers. Please note that production Lomax cars are for sale on this website priced up to £18,000 so bear this in mind when making an offer for this unique one off prototype.
Please call for further details.
