ABANDONED PROJECT    -   LOTUS ELAN +2S  130/5   -   FOR RESTORATION   -   TAX EXEMPT (As of APRIL 2014)

 

FIRSTLY:  I AM NOT A DEALER OR MOTOR TRADER & THIS CAR IS SOLD AS SEEN AND APPROVED WITH NO WARRANTY IMPLIED OR GIVEN. ANY BIDDING IS TO BUY AT THE FINAL PRICE SO PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE ABLE TO PROCEED BEFORE BIDDING.   THE CAR IS COLLECTION ONLY  (I DO NOT HAVE A TRAILER)  DEPOSIT OF £200 REQUIRED AT AUCTION END AND THE BALANCE BY CASH ON PICK UP.

THIS CAR WAS FIRST REG IN MAY 1973. THE V5 IS PRESENT AND IN MY NAME.   IT IS A GENUINE 130/5 WITH THE ORIGINAL 'N' STAMPED BIG VALVE HEAD.   LAST ON THE ROAD IN APPROX 1997 IT HAS BEEN DRY STORED SINCE.   I BOUGHT IT FROM A LOTUS DEALER IN MARCH 2010 WHEN IT WAS DEMONSTRATED RUNNING BUT NEEDING A TUNE. THE CLUTCH WAS SEIZED. MY INTENTION WAS TO RESTORE THE CAR TO ITS FORMER GLORY BUT I HAVE HAD TO SADLY CHANGE MY PLANS.  THE ATTRACTION IS A COMPLETE CAR WITH EXCELLENT INTERIOR AND STRAIGHT BODYWORK ALL GLASS IS GOOD.  PRIOR TO ITS LAY UP THE CAR HAD A RESTORATION. IT HAS A SPYDER CHASSIS WHICH IS EXCELLENT. GALVANISED CILLS. STAINLESS EXHAUST AND THE TYRES ARE DUNLOP SP AND ARE 95%. THE INTERIOR NEEDS A DEEP CLEAN BUT IS EXCELLENT AS ARE THE HEADLINING AND DOOR CARDS.   THE PAINTWORK AND CHROME ARE USEABLE BUT THE RESPRAY IT WAS GIVEN WAS NOT THE BEST AND A COUPLE OF AREAS SHOW CRACKING AND FLAKING. THE BUMPERS ARE SOLID BUT NEED A RE-CHROME. THERE IS NO BATTERY AND THE CAR IS NOT RUNNING. THE SPARE IA AN ALLOY BUT THE TYRE IS POOR.   CHROME ON THE WHEEL NUTS IS POOR.   PLASTIC CHROME WINDSCREEN SURROUND NEED REPLACING (SEE PIC). DRIVERS SEAT RECLINE IS STUCK. THE MILAGE SHOWS JUST UNDER 10000. CLEARLY NOT CORRECT BUT I HAVE NO PREVIOUS HISTORY. AS ANOUNCED IN THE MARCH 2013 BUDGET THIS CAR WILL BECOME TAX EXEMPT AS OF APRIL 2014 WHEN THE NEW RULES COME INTO EFFECT.

THE CAR IS LOCATED IN SOMERSET ( TA12 6BG )  AS ANY VEHICLE. VIEWING IS RECOMMENDED. TO VIEW OR ASK ANY QUESTIONS MESSAGE ME OR TEXT/RING  07703 488382

COLLECTION ONLY - DEPOSIT (£200) AT AUCTION END -  BALANCE CASH ON PICK UP -  SOLD AS SEEN
