Here is my Lotus Europa Twin Cam 5 speed gearbox tax free no tax or MOT

The Europa is in amazing condition for a 40+ year old car with a very good original chassis and very good body with only a few minor stress cracks in the body

 it has 74. 00 miles and has not been on the road since 1987 I have the blue log book in my name.

The engine is running but there is water in the sump probably  from a headgasket or water pump issue. water pumps are a common problem on these engines especially if left standing for long periods.

Other jobs needed to get her on the road are Wipers not working I think it is the switch. Drivers seat needs bolting down I'm 6ft 3in so you can adjust it to suite

Windows don't work although they do if you connect wires from a battery to the motors Speedo needs connecting up Gearbox linkage needs adjusting

 Lack of funds and old age  (I cant get in it any more) prevents me from finishing the car So its time to pass her on to someone who will look after her

 Running twin cam europas go for between £12000 and £25000. rotten basket cases for over £4000 so and a start  price of £5000 with no reserve is not unreasonable for this car 

(it has cost me far more than that) so please no silly offers

New brake calipers discs and pads braided brake flexible hoses copper brake lines and master cylinder

New carpets  New seat covers  New seat belts  New suspension bushes  New front adjustable suspension

New uj's  New Stainless steel back box  New rear swinging arm  New alloy fuel tanks  Bumpers re-chromed

5 speed gearbox conversion  adjustable rear suspension  15” alloy wheels the original 13”cosmic alloy wheels will also go with the car

original workshop manual  solid chassis  all the lights work  about 2lt of paint.

Cash on collection viewing welcome just phone first the car will need a trailer for collection

Any questions call  0781062 5688   ask for Bob

PLEASE I AM A 100% EBAYER WITH OVER 300 POSITIVE FEEDBACK SO ONLY BID IF YOU INTEND TO BUY
