KAR 120C Is Completed

Recommended Posts

If you have watched the video link, then you know what I am working on.  This is a Lotus Seven Series II also known as KAR 120C or No. 6's car from the TV series The Prisoner starring the late Patrick McGoohan.  I built this one many years ago.  It is one of my favorite models and one that needs a little TLC.  I started to dismantle the car a bit this morning to clean and to repaint some of the parts used in this build.

The Lotus 7 is a perfect sports car: nothing on it that doesn't help it go faster.  Save those survivors!

The last time I saw one a Lotus Seven, it needed an engine rebuild.  It sat there idling and blowing blue smoke out of the pipe.  It also looked like it was just pulled from a barn...

After cleanups and touchups, the Lotus is going back together.  I painted the wheels gloss aluminium since the wheels on KAR 120C are not white like I thought they were.  I had originally painted the steering wheel spokes aluminium, but now they are chrome thanks to my Molotow Liquid Chrome 1 mm pen.

More to come...

I knew right away from the thread title what you were working on! I've been meaning to do one myself for a long time. Good build!

Thank you Steve!  I finished the Lotus last night, but I haven't had time to take any pictures today since I've been carting the wife and her sisters to and from the hospital where one sister has been hospitalized.  I'll get around to it soon...

I have finished my Lotus Seven Series II and it is posted in Under Glass.  I would like to thank all those who have taken the time to view and to comment on my WIP.

The end credits...
