I recently purchased this vehicle from a gentleman who restores Lotus cars and what a job he made of it.
I have the restoration pictures he took whilst restoring it with the body off. engine rebuild etc all on disc.
It's had a new Lotus chassis. strengthened in places. Avo Platform Adjustable Suspension. 5 Speed Gearbox with Banks conversion to deal with the extra power.
The engine has been totally rebuilt. cranks never been ground. has QED Pistons. Cams and a Big Valve Head.
The Carbs have been rejetted to suit the cams and it runs spot on.
The engine is leak free. pulls like a train and the gearbox is amazing. It has cosworth rear calipers and disc brakes so stops as it should. A new stainless steel exhaust and sounds lovely.
It has been totally restored from the ground up. chassis. suspension. brakes. electrics. interior etc.
The paintwork lets it down to be honest. has a few star crazes on the tops of the front wings and sometime in it's life it's had a cover over it which has caused blistering. This will need addressing to make it mint.
It has the correct wheels and the interior is excellent. all the clocks. dials etc have been refurbished with Lotus steering wheel.
Everything works as it should. electrics. lights door. boot and bonnet locks etc.
I've probably missed loads of info off here. I will add it as I remember.
I am only selling the car as I have found a Lotus Elan Sprint and can't afford them both.
Loads of paperwork. bills. receipts etc for work carried out.
It drives absolutely spot on. I drove it 250 miles back home when I purchased it and it never missed a beat.
IF YOU CAN SEE PAST THE PAINTWORK THIS CAR DRIVES. HANDLES. STOPS SPOT ON.
ALL THE HARD WORK HAS BEEN DONE FROM THE GROUND UP. ENGINE/BOX SUSPENSION. RAKES. ETC ALL GREAT. OR JUST RUN IT AS IT IS.
PURCHASED AN ELAN SPRINT DHC SO WILL ADVERTISE IT ELSEWHERE.
