The owner is clearly a man of few words, and here is how he describes this car:

Fully rebuilt 350 Chev motor, 4 speed Muncie gearbox 9″, Ford diff. Space frame chassis. CAMS log book. Great track car. Any reasonable offer considered.

Bolwell is probably best known for the iconic 1970s V8 powered Bolwell Nagari but Campbell Bolwell actually started his Bolwell Cars business in 1962 building body chassis kits of what is now known as the Bolwell Mk4. The Mk5 followed with its bulbous rear window a little like a Jensen. The Mk6 was actually a one off racing special. The Bolwell Mk7 was designed around using Holden 6 mechanicals in a fibreglass body with a steel chassis. It was an extremely popular project car and production of the Mk7 continued well after the introduction of the V8 powered Nagari.

This particular car is not your standard Bolwell Mk7, but is more a purpose built track car. The standard Bolwell steel chassis has been replaced by a space frame, and the expected Holden red motor has been replaced by a Chev 350 V8 backed up by a 4 speed Muncie box and a Ford 9” diff.

This Bolwell Mk7 comes with a CAMS log book and has seen some action on the track, including competing in the Marque Sports Car Association Victoria (MSCA) Super Sprint Series with very respectable times.
