John Player Specal Lotus - An original cockpit body surround from Ronnie Peterson's Type 76; fibre-glass and finished in black and gold livery of sponsors JPS and driver's name to side.
The Type 76 was the long-awaited replacement for the legendary Type 72. Team Lotus, as reigning Constructors Champions, expected a lot of the visually-striking Type 76 design. The car was not as competitive as anticipated, hence only two chassis were made. As a result the cockpit on offer here is very rare.
