Bolwell Mk 7 Group S project. SOLD, going to Victoria
1967 Bolwell Mk 7

The car has been in principle approved for Group S several years ago with a Holden 186 motor. (186 allowed as a search of RTA (MRA) records showed oldest records with the car running the 186 engine number of the motor that comes with the car). The Group S historic Commission (Tony) was engaged in several discussions with to create a safe race car within the constraints of the original chassis and a very thin fibreglass body. This has been achieved through strengthening the safety of the car with the addition of unobtrusive modern materials and their intelligent application to safety. A highly designed full roll cage has been added with triangulation above the drivers head and side intrusion bars, with the front section demountable, leaving the potential for the car to be road registered with demount of the front section of the cage.

The car comes with the original leaf spring suspension, giving a considerable advantage over many Mk7's that were fitted with the optional coil suspension. Opinion of a few leading race suspension specialists indicated that this is the better configuration (as coil suspension pick up points for both the Mark7 and the Nagari were unfixable for good handling without illegal changing of the suspension pick up ponts for group S, where modern single leaf rear can perform excellently).

The work on the chassis was completed by Damien Connolly, a very bright chassis builder (with quite a quiet low profile) who designed and built a number of very successful cars in the very fast Sports Sedan CAMS category and raced in that category himself.

The primary objective of the work has been to make a safe race car complying with Group S CAMS regulations.

The chassis has been sand blasted and all been re- welded carefully to avoid this typical weak issue.

The whole Chassis was coated with POR 50.

The passenger and driver seat wells have been strengthened with additional material to prevent easy penetration through thin fibreglass and allow safe footings for the roll cage. I can relay results of chassis tests.


The Toyota 4 peed Gearbox that came in the car has a remote shift that is placed nicely within reach, and the box has received closer ratios.

The 186 Engine is yet to be developed, however the engine has the performance potential of a modified Torana XU1 and with a far more aerodynamic body with high potential in group Sb.
A spare performance 186 long motor is included with roller rockers.


The car has good pedal set up allowing heel and toe easily.
The front suspension is tuned with 2 degrees static negative camber as allowed with Group S regulations.
A new laminated windscreen comes with the car.
New Lexan (Polycarbonate) in original wrapping cut to size and shape of the rear and side windows is provided.
Original instruments are provided but are in poor condition and the original wiring harness of Holden is in the car.
With some love and work, this could be among the fastest cars in Group SB and an AUSTRALIAN car.

BOLWELL Mk 7: Classic Australian Sports Coupe

" An enthusiests car that needs some work to get realy reliable and usable. Under guards have been boxed in to isolate the carby inlets from the front wheel. Carbys and manifolds cleaned and remounted correctly with sock filters. Car was originally bought as a race car and was bought without seats, but now has a drivers seat and a roll cage.
This car has been originelly set up for racing to some degree, with quite low suspension and a high compression (300 HP)head with roller rockers since replaced with a new low comp186 head. Suspension is very much like Torana with semi trailing arms at the rear, in fact the whole car except for the body is Holden running gear anyway, just needs some work to tidy up areas, like the loose drivers window glass and broken door inner handle, Price is going up as work is done for rego, currently a new wiring loom, lights and some new equipment are being fitted, suspension work is next to raise and fix worn parts? Engineers certificate for the roll cage, seat belts, etc will up the price again before full registration, a great Ausie classic that could be used for historic races?
