FINISHED IN RED WITH BEIGE HALF LEATHER INTERIOR.

REGISTERED 31/3/1987 AND OWNED BY ME SINCE 2005. THIS CAR HAS BEEN SERVICED BY GST PERFORMANCE (GERALD/NEIL) FOR APPROXIMATELT TEN YEARS. EVERYTHING RECOMMENDED BY GST HAS BEEN DONE.

THE CAR IS MY DAILY CAR AND IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST EXCELS TO DRIVE YOU WILL FIND – ESPECIALLY WITH THE UPGRADED FRONT BRAKES [AP RACING DISCS AND CALIPERS SUPPLIED BY SJ SPORTSCARS AND FITTED BY GST]. GENUINELY INTERESTED BYERS CAN CONTACT GERALD AT GST FOR AN HONEST POINT OF VIEW.

ALMOST EVERYTHING IS STANDARD. THE EXCEPTIONS BEING. THE AP RACING FRONT DISCS AND CALIPERS. COBRA REMOTE ALARM. SJS STAINLESS EXHAUST. ALPINE DAB CD/RADIO AND TOYO TYRES.

FOR A 1987 EXCEL THE CAR IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION THROUGHOUT WITH A VERY LARGE HISTORY FILE INCLUDING NUMEROUS SPECIALIST INVOICES AND PREVIOUS MOT CERTIFICATES.

IN CASE YOU DID NOT ALREADY KNOW THE EXCEL IS PROBABLY THE MOST PRACTICAL LOTUS YOU COULD OWN. THE BOOT IS BIG ENOUGH FOR TWO SETS OF GOLF CLUBS!

THE NOT SO GOOD…  THE PAINTWORK HAS SEEN BETTER DAYS. BUT WITH A GOOD CLEAN AND POLISH STILL LOOKS GREAT AS SHE DRIVES BY…  THE INTERIOR LEATHER IS MOSTLY IN REALLY GOOD CONDITION THE FRONT SEAT SIDE PANELS BEING THE WORST.   THE CAR WOULD BUT WOULD BENEFIT FROM NEW MATS & CARPET. THE HEADLINING IS GENERALLY GOOD. ALTHOUGH SOME PANELS WOULD BENEFIT FROM BEING REPLACED. THE WINDSCREEN IS ONLY TWO OR THREE YEARS OLD. BUT HAS JUST HAD A STONE CHIP. I WILL GET THAT REPARIED. THE SPEDO WAS REPLACED AROUND 100K MILES (KEPT ORIGINAL AND WILL BE PROVIDED IN THE SALE) NEW SPEDO HAS JUST PASSED 38K MILES. (C. 138K MILES IN TOTAL)

I DO HAVE A NEW SET OF LOTUS PISTONS AND LINERS… I BOUGHT THEM YEARS AGO BUT HAVE NEVER BEEN NEEDED AND UNLIKELY TO BE NEEDED FOR MANY MILES TO COME PROVIDING THE LEVEL OF SERVICING AND QUALITY OILS ARE KEPT UP (AGAIN SPEAK TO GERALD)… ONCE PROPERLY WARMED UP THE ENGINE IS VERY HAPPY TO BE USED AS IT WAS DESIGNED – GRINS GUARENTEED! IN FACT THE MORE SHE IS USED. THE BETTER SHE RUNS… IN TEN YEARS SHE HAS ONLY BROKEN DOWN TWICE. ONCE WAS DUE TO ME TRUSTING THE FUEL GAGUE (DON'T GO BELOW A ¼ TANK TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE) AND THE OTHER TIME WAS A RADIATOR HOSE GAVE UP.  I CANT OVER STATE HOW RELIABLE THIS CAR IS UNDER THE CARE OF GST. I ALSO HAVE THE ORIGINAL CALIPERS. NEW SEAT FOAMS AND A PAIR OF NEW REAR DISCS. THE PISTONS. LINERS. SEAT FOAMS AND REAR DISCS ARE ALL AVAILABLE BY SEPARATE NEGOTIATION AND DO NOT FORM PART OF THIS SALE.

THE CAR HAS JUST BEEN SERVICED AND MOT'D BY GST AND IS TAXED TIL JUNE 2014. (CURRENTLY £225/YEAR)

BY JOINING CLUB LOTUS YOU CAN GET CLASSIC CAR INSURANCE DISCOUNT. FULLY COMP. UNLIMITED MILEAGE. TWO DRIVERS. GUARENTEED INSURANCE WRITE OFF VALUE OF £8. 50. RECOVERY AND EUROPEAN COVER WITH FOOTMAN JAMES COSTS JUST £377. 64 A YEAR.

I WILL ADD MORE DETAILS ABOUT SERVICE HISTORY SHORTLY
