1970 Lotus 7

The Lotus was purchased with existing damage on EBay back in August 2006 as a project car. It had been involved in a minor front end collision that required a new front nose piece and radiator. Unfortunatly it was considered salvage at that time by the insurance company. The Lotus has since been repaired and is ready for a new owner.   

A right hand drive replica originally built in 1997 by Mark Burley using a 1. 6L English Ford Locus engine and a 4sp manual transmission. The Lotus is titled as a 1970 MG. The front and rear suspension appear to be early 70's European Ford Capri. Minilite wheels with good but older tires. The Lotus runs and drives with no drama. shifts smoothly and stops as it should. It has current registration thru October 2013 and a Salvage CA title.  

The odometer shows 3990 miles. I'm guessing that's how many miles the cars been driven since it was built. I have know way of knowing how many miles are on the drivetrain or if it was rebuilt prior to the Lotus being assembled.

The Lotus interior is very tight. I'm 6' 1"  210lbs and really don't fit well into the car. Please take that into consideration when bidding. Please contact me thru Ebay with any questions.
