***SERVICE HISTORY TO 37. 00 MILES******MILEAGE CORRECT AT 44. 00 ONLY***
Here we have a 1986 Lotus Eclat Excel 2 plus 2 that is in tremendous condition. It is the SE so is equipped with the 2. 2 litre 130 bhp engine. Having had only 4 owners from new. with the last one never having used the car. this must be one of the best genuine low mileage cars currently available at this price. The last tax disc in the windscreen expired in February 1998 with the last MOT expiring in August 1998. it is believed the car was last used on the road just before the tax expired as the clutch failed and it was laid up at that time. which is consistent with the mileage. It is complete with all books. is MOT'd until December 2014. and is now ready to go. It is exciting to drive. and handles exactly as it should. Fitted with twin Dellorto carbs. and electronic ignition. these are a very reliable and usable classic car. Work done to prepare it for going back on the road. includes brake overhaul with new front discs and pads. the fitment of a new clutch. reconditioned radiator. new cambelt. replacement exhaust sections. nbsp;steering rack gaiter. and 2 new rear tyres.  Finished in a superb metallic British Racing Green. the body and paintwork is generally very good. with two small areas on the roof. and one area on the rear spoiler where the lacquer is peeling. which would not be that costly to repair. The interior is again in excellent condition. and it has had a new roof lining. however this requires re gluing in the central area as it would appear the adhesive was not quite up to the job of withstanding the heat of the sun on the roof. This car is on the original wheels. and is to its original specification. and unlike many it has not been modified. Fitted with power steering. electric windows. central locking. toad alarm and front and rear seat belts. viewing of this rare car is highly recommend. The car is at my garage in the village of Melbourne near East Midlands Airport. For more information or to make an appointment to view. email me or give us a call on 01332 865311.
