Although the Westfield replica looks similar to the Lotus original, the chassis, suspension and powertrain are completely different. The Westfield chassis is designed to take parts from a Mk III MG Midget/Austin Healy Sprite, and the vast majority of Westfield Elevens are built in this way. The Spridget usually donates its engine (1275 A-series), gearbox (4-speed, although many people use a 5-speed Ford type-9 box) , back axle, propshaft (modified), brakes and wheels, gauges, wiring harness, radiator, battery, pedal box, fuel sender, steering rack and mounts and various suspension parts. The rest of the car, including chassis, is purchased new from Westfield.
Although this site is under development, it is intended that it will serve as a community site for owners and interested parties, and, potentially, as a register for Westfield Elevens and their owners.
