 Welcome to my auction of this beautiful Lotus 7 replica. BUT built using many original Lotus 7 parts and some very nice and rare alloys. PLEASE READ ON.

Built to a very high standard in the 1970s by a qualified mechanic who utilized the fact that he had a customers Lotus 7 in his garage and decided to build his own copy and keep it as close to the original as possible.

Genuine Lotus 7 nose cone.
Genuine Lotus 7 rear wings.
Genuine Lotus 7 pedal box.
Genuine Lotus 7 front suspension uprights and wishbones.
Genuine Lotus 7 rear suspension.
Genuine Lotus 7 single bulb headlights.

Fitted with a MK II Ford Cortina 1600 crossflow engine.
Fitted with a 1600 MKII Ford Escort Sport gearbox.
Rear axle is from a 1600 MKII Ford Escort RS2000.
Alloy wheels are very rare indeed. front ones from an Escort RS2000. rear ones from a Ford Capri RS3100.

Long mot until 30th April 2014. no advisories.
Long tax until 30th April 2014. this is an historic vehicle so will always be £0. 00!!!!!!

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.

Please email me with any questions.
Bidders with under 20 feedback please email me BEFORE bidding. Overseas bidders are WELCOME but again email me your contact details BEFORE bidding. I do not want to have to cancel any bids BUT I will if you cant adhere to these simply rules.

Cash for remainder on collection within 7 days of auction end PLEASE. NO TIMEWASTERS OR HAGGLING. TIME IS TOO PRECIOUS TO WASTE.

Kindest regards.
