TURBO,ESPRIT,1988,5 SPEED for sale
Turbo was rebuilt at 67. 00 by magestic turbo.
New custom made carpet was installed a year or so ago. erfect.
New headliner was installed at the same time. (a normal espirt problem. orted!)
New leather below front windsheild installed also. (a normal esprit problem. orted!)
The interior work was done by a guy that has done cars in Hot Rod ect. (He is the best. eriod)
The engine runs as it should. ears all shift smooth and reverse works as it should. (you have to pull up on the shifter for reverse!)
The air conditioner has never worked. eeds recharging im sure.
It has 70. 00 original miles. have only put 3. 00 since ive owned the car.
The owners manual has the orignal service documents from long beach california stamped by the dealership. ll include pictures of that. (very cool!)
I also include parts manuals and service manuals. ery expensive if purchased separately.
Besides the air conditioner. he relay for the bright lights doesnt work. ront headlights only work on dim. (You have to get that relay from England. ll include the guys in Atlanta. A phone number. hey can get it.
I just reworked the headlight motor gears. hats lift the headlights. nother esprit problem sorted!
This car drives straight and perfect.
The turbo is strong and correct. ut I stay out of it and always have. his thing has been babied. nd i continued that tradition.
The seats are way above average for this year model.
This is the last true lotus. MC bought lotus in 1989 and promptly put a trans-am steering wheel in the cars. eally an ugly move. ut they had to have an air bag.
The original MOMO is so nice. ne of the nicest things about driving the car.
As far as bang for the buck. his thing has been reliable and a joy to own.
I just need an every day driver for now. nd i will use this sale for that purpose.
THANKS FOR LOOKING. HATE TO SEE THIS ONE GO!
The main two thing the car needs is the air conditioner needs recharging.
The bright head lamp relay doesn't work. ou have to order from a LOTUS dealership. (dim lights are fine. )
Its a great car. nd has never failed to start the entire time I have owned it.
I TOOK IT OUT LAST NIGHT. HIS IS A VERY TIGHT CAR.
IM ADDING THE PICTURES OF MANUAL WITH STAMPED SERVICE INTERVALS NOW.
