Chassis: R3
Graham Hill used chassis R3 for the second half of 1967 and for the 1968 season opener at Kyalami. Two second place finishes were Hill's best results in R3. Lotus sold the car to South African John Love, who campaigned the car with a lot of success in local events for several years. The car was last raced in contemporary events in 1970. It was eventually acquired by the Beaulieu / National Motor Museum where it has been on display for many years in its original livery. Chassis R3 is the only Lotus 49 that has not been upgraded to B-specification and as such remains as the most original example in existence. It is seen here at a rare outing during the 2008 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
