I picked this up at a toy show this weekend.  Wasn't sure about the car ID, but was pretty sure the body is Lancer as there were a lot of cars with similar bodies and some NOS Lancer 1/32 bodies in the same big box.

 

So...found it in a '69 Auto world catalog...I think!  It's identified as a Lola T162.  However, upon googling this car, it doesn't really match.  It appears to be a Lola T160 from 1968.  I couldn't find a specific livery/configuration to match this car, so it is probably built based on the imagination of the original owner...but I love the pipes!

 

What do you think?  Might it be something else?

 

Also picked up two nice Lancer bodies at the same time.  Nicely striped on the inside with a clear coat over the tape.  Was that a common practice?

 

Thanks for looking!

 

Jim

It's a Lola T-160 or variant thereof. I'm not familiar with the T-162 variant(new designations came with significant upgrade packages such as with the T-163) but if that's what Lancer wanted to call it, so be it for the sake of advertising anyway.

My Dad ran a Lola T160/2 in the Can-am. This is a photo from the Trois-Rivieres Can-Am. This car was a T160 with a little

different upgrade rear wing and also the longer T162 front end. The original nose was higher wheel humps. Sorry the only pic

I could find on the internet. This was in the garages/ horse barn of the fairgrounds.

I believe it is supposed to be the T-160 Gurney ran, based on the rear fender extensions like those on his Olsenite car.

Sharp looking Lola body! The chassis is a Monogram, the Russkit decals must be for decoration. :laugh2:

I apologize for the thread drift, but since we're talking about Lola Can Am cars, what was the chassis designation for the Lola that Jackie Stewart drove, the one with the extremely blunt nose, that later sprouted a monster wing, and ran L&M livery? My brain cell fails me. :D

If my memory is correct Mike that was a Lola T260 with the L&M livery and blunt nose.

Too bad those MG cars didn't run better. We ran them as a separate class at the Bensenville Bombers club. We replaced

the diff with a solid axle, and the motors with Ninco NC-5s. We would have been happier if they had been true 1/32nd scale. 

When these came out there wasn't much available for Can-Am cars.
