    Default 1976 Interscope Lola T-332C HU60

    Offered for sale is one of the best and most original examples of a F5000 car in existence. This car was raced in period by Danny Ongais and eventually transferred to his ownership after the end of the F5000 series. Danny sold it to Vasek Polak. We bought it from Vasek’s estate in 1997 after his passing and performed a complete mechanical restoration with careful attention being paid to keeping the car as original as possible. The tub is original with no evidence of damage. The body is original and still has its original paint from new. The engine block and gearbox are original to the car, with the only major update being aluminum heads on the Stu Van Dyne built engine. The shoulder harness mounting has also been updated to be HANS device compliant. The car is race ready as it sits, needing only new tires and new seat belts, as the current Willans are out of date. This car draws a crowd whenever it makes an appearance.

    Raced extensively on the west coast since restoration, it won the VARA championship in 2000, and the HSR West BOSS Super Cup Championship in 2003 and 2005.

    The T-332C was produced by Lola after customers were having trouble making the T-400 work well. Lola started to remake the T-332, and called it the T-332C. This means that this car has all the latestand greatest developments and tricks that Lola had come up with.

    I remember the car well. And the crew. We pitted next to them often the last 2 years of F5000. The dihedral wing was built by hand on a truck tailgate in the garages at Watkins Glen, can't remember the name of the guy.
