Current owner for the last 27 years!!!!
119 YUV is the registration number. not transferrable.
V5 states this Lotus recreation was originally in 1960 an Austin Healey. a frogeye I would guess. This is NOT a Q registered kit car!!!! I have checked chassis numbers on the car and the V5 and all match up. So parts of this car were first registered in 1960. Its only had 2 former keepers since 1960!!!!
I have some old mots in the cars history file going back to 2002 and I have the purchase receipt from 1986 when this car was bought for £3000. 27 years ago.
Quite simply a FUN car. And quite a rare one.
Paintwork is finished in the best colour for a Lotus 7. British Racing Green. All in very good order apart from some crazing on the nose cone. I would say £100-£150 to make perfect.
Cooling fan fitted so you can switch on and off when you wish. However. it really needs a Kenlowe cooling fan fitted as lately when I have been driving locally. the temperature gauge is reading hot after 20 minutes of driving. So for this reason I would recommend collecting on a trailer until this issue is resolved.
Always starts first turn of the key and a real fun car to drive.
