1976 LOTUS ECLAT 2. 0 TWIN CAM
MY PRIDE AND JOY THAT I SPENT LAST YEARS AWFUL SUMMER RESTORING TO A VERY GOOD STANDARD.
IT IS NOT CONCOURS BUT THEN IM NOT ASKING CONCOURS PRICES. THAT SAID THIS IS A VERY NICE EXAMPLE & IVE NOT SEEN A BETTER ONE TO BE HONEST ( OUT OF THE VERY FEW I HAVE SEEN AT SHOWS ) THIS IS A REAL HEAD TURNER AND GETS LOADS OF ATTENTION WHEREVER I GO
IT HAS GOT BRAND NEW.
PROF FITTED CARPETS. ALSO IN THE BOOT AS PICTURED. SEATS ARE NEWLY REUPHOLSTERED IN PERIOD FABRIC AND VINYL
NEW GEAR GATOR. ROOF FABRIC BOLSTER SURROUNDS. DOOR CARDS/DASH AND CENTRE CONSOL ARE ALL ORIGINAL
I HAVE SPENT THE YEAR OR SO THAT I HAVE OWNED IT SORTING AWFUL DIY RESTO WORK OUT. DONE IN BAD TASTE MOSTLY.
IT HAS HAD ££££ LOADS SPENT ON IT
THE ENGINE HAS BEEN TAKEN OUT AND HAS HAD A MASSIVE OVERHAUL INCLUDING.
OVERHAULED REPLACEMENT ENGINE (SEE PICS) NEW ALTERNATER. NEW PISTON RINGS. SEALS & GASKETS. FULL ENGINE PAINTED & ROCKER COVERS. NEW SWITCHES AND SENSORS. K&N OIL FILTER WITH NEW OIL. HT LEADS. ELECTRONIC IGNITION. DIS CAP. IGNITION COIL. NEW VACUUM PIPES. TIMING BELT. FAN BELT. THERMOSTAT. SPARK PLUGS. COOLANT. GEAR BOX OIL. PROBABLY MISSED A FEW THINGS
IT ALSO HAS AN ELECTRONIC FUEL PUMP AND STAINLESS STEEL BACK BOXES. STAINLESS STEEL K&N AIR FILTERS. REAR SEAT BELTS. 4 YOKOHAMA TYRES NEARLY NEW
BAD BITS THAT I HAVNT GOT AROUND TO DOING ARE.
THE USUAL PROBLEM WITH THE HEAD LIGHTS THAT DECIDE TO GO UP ON THEIR OWN WHEN THE IGNITION HAS BEEN TURNED OFF (LEAK IN THE VACUUM SYSTEM)
SLIGHT FRACTURE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WINDSCREEN THAT HAPPENED ON ITS OWN THIS SUMMER. NOT SURE IF ITS AN MOT FAIL BUT I WILL CHANGE IT ANYWAY IF THE CAR DOESNT SELL
IM SURE I HAVE MISSED A FEW THINGS OUT BUT ITS BEEN A VERY WELL LOVED CAR AND ALL THE WORK DONE PROFESSIONALLY. I HAVE LOTS OF RECEIPTS AND PAPERWORK FROM PREVIOUS OWNER.
THE CAR IS CURRENTLY SORN DUE TO THE EXTENSIVE WORK DONE LAST YEAR. SO NO MOT OR TAX BUT STARTS RUNS AND STOPS READY FOR SUMMER
VIEWING IS NO PROBLEM. PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE PRESSING THE BUY IT IF YOU INTERESTED TO BUY.
I am being realistic on what I want for the car. I have spent enough on it now and want to move on. I keep getting asked what it will need for its mot.
First of all it would be great for all of us to know the answer to that when we put our cars in to be tested. 2nd my brother is the mechanic and he now works away and I really can't wait any longer to get out in a classic car.
I took it for a spin in my road the other day. It starts runs and stops. I would say the carbs need adjusting as they were set up for the last engine. Also I would replace the starter motor as its a bit hit & miss exept for when I used the booster as the battery wasn't fully charged. It will need a new windscreen and I'm sure an mot wouldn't be far away.
