1972 Lotus Europa S3 TWIN CAM. span >  59. 13 original miles

Offered is a 1972 Lotus Europa S3 TWIN CAM VIN #46/2503R. build in July '72 just a few serial numbers before the Lotus switched to the Special model. It has the stronger Special 352 4sp with rear shifter. Big Valve engine with Sprint cams. brake boosters and many other upgrades that Special is known for. This car is from Texas and it's very clean and straight. No accidents and no rust on the chassis. The suspension is clean with bolts still showing factory plating. The car is NOT restored and is original. The rear bearings were redone including new u-joints. The car was last used in 1996. It's being in the shop since on display most of its life.   The car was prepped for the storage by lubricating the engine. taking gas out. etc.   Engine rotated every month.

The car has some engine modifications done by Sports Car World of Dallas. The valve cover is stamped with the level of modifications. Emissions deleted. polished and balanced engine internals. higher compression. aluminum flywheel. exhaust headers. Japanese alternator. modern radiator electric fan. etc. The interior is very nice. The rear suspension has adjustable lower links.   The car has new – never used on the road - 15x7 Panasport type wheels and new 195/50-15 Dunlop tires with “0” miles. Never driven. Hubs were upgraded with larger studs and lug nuts. If the original Spider wheels are preferred I can switch them but the car is being sold with one set of wheels.

Please look at the pictures. I can take more if required. The car is not like most of Europas offered for sale. This is clean and well preserved car. The door hardware that on other cars is always rusted solid is still factory new looking.

The car has to be transported due to long storage. The breaking systems were completely rebuild including boosters but over the years of storage and just washing. the rotors have surface rust. span >  new rotors are included in the sale – The engine is perfect and was last running in 2015. Inspection of the car is welcome.
