Hello everyone,
I'm wondering if anyone knows who would be the current day guru on all things to do with production of the Steelbro Super 7? I tried calling Steelbro but no one there knows about production in the 1970s anymore. Can anyone help?
Thanks

Gollum on this site is the expert on NZ made Steelbro cars.... I'm sure he will be along shortly!

Hello. I am certainly no expert, burt am keen to learn as much as I can, I have a Steelbro S4, which I am in the process of getting back on the road, and learning as I go, so any help you can get from this site will be good help.
What is your project or problem, or are you looking to buy?

I believe the absolute guru of everything Steelbro Lotus to be Harry Hawkins of ClubLotus NZ. I've never met him but he sent me a few emails when I first got my current car. Unfortunately he doesn't seem to answer emails now - at least to the address I have. I can give you his details offline if you want to do some detective work. Apparently he has a register of all the cars made, he sent me two pictures of my car on the production line! Next would be Garry Williams - Production Manager of the Lotus line at Steelbro and then would be Hajo Steffen. If we are talking overall S4 Lotus 7 guru then Hajo is the man, no competition.

Thank you for the info Gollum. I will contact Club Lotus NZ and see if they can provide contact details for Harry Hawkins and/or Garry Williams. The the linked article was very informative also.
