Dala7 is a taller and wider Lotus 7 inspired design using Volvo parts. The idea behind the design was to make a sevenesque car suitable for Swedish conditions, so it was made taller and wider to make it possible for taller persons to sit comfortably and to make it possible to use Volvo parts that are abundant in Sweden. The chassis is based on the Esther design, but 16 cm (6.3 in) wider and 12 cm (4.7 in) longer so it's possible to use, for instance, a Volvo 740 as a donor. Production is located in Stora Skedvi, close to Säter in Dalarna.
While Volvo is the preferred donor, builds have been made with engines from SAAB, Opel, Ford, Mazda and so on.
