   This is a 1970 Lotus Europa S2. It is running and driving and amazingly still wears its original paint! It was last licensed in 2007 and just recently brought back to life after its 7 year slumber.

  The Chassis is in great condition with the usual surface rust but no problems or signs of major damage or repair. The glassfibre body too is in very good original condition.   This car is still in its original paint colour code L10 bahama yellow. A very period correct and I think very appealing colour for this car. The paint generally looks very nice but does have lots of flaws from its 40+ years of service. It has some of the typical Lotus stress cracks and lots of small chips and scratches (see pictures for examples). Despite the flaws this Europa still looks extremely nice and presentable.

 The glass is all in great shape. The chrome bumpers are nice. The original steel rims are nice.

 The Engine runs very strong. It is mostly stock with only the original carburetor replaced with a Weber progressive 2 barrel equipped with automatic electric choke.   It starts easy and drives very nicely. The  clutch works perfect and the gearbox shifts smoothly through all gears. The suspension and steering are in good order. The brakes work but pedal travels somewhat far and brakes could probably do with some service.   The 12v negative ground electrics are in generally good order with most things working. The power windows both go up and down great. Lights. wipers and indicators are all working. Minor things like horn. windscreen washers aren't working. The heater flow control valve is missing and currently the heater is on all the time. The heat. defrost and blower motor all work great.

The Interior is fair. The seats and door panels appear to have been recovered in smooth black vinyl and are decent but not perfect. The carpets. headliner. dash top are all in good condition. The wood dash looks to be very original and has lots of cracks in the varnish. All instruments work except the tach which is partially working (needle jumps up at times). It has its original seat belts. The interior rear view mirror is included but will need to be re-attached to the windscreen.

 The tyres are quite old and really should be replaced although they do all hold air. It does not come with a spare rim/tyre or tools. The water pump is leaking a little water and will need to be replaced. The air cleaner is present but has no foam in it.

  Overall this car is in very good condition and you can jump in and drive it right away but it will need some TLC here and there.

It does come with a clear title.

Buyer is responsible for shipping costs and arrangements.
The Europa can be viewed by appointment in Granite Falls WA (near Seattle)
I highly recommend and encourage a personal inspection if possible.
Must be picked up within 30 days.

Please feel free to ask any questions.
If you're interested in a non-running (and cheaper) project Europa I do have another car on ebay. Please look at sellers other items.
