This Eclat is an amazing example of a well taken care of classic car. for its age. it is exemplary. The exterior paintwork is top quality. only minor blemishes. and the interior is in great original condition overall including headlining with newly covered leather front seats. Mechanically the engine has been upgraded to the fuel injected SE Esprit spec including the computer; it has some minor glitches like. occasionally the standard GM injectors are known for “sticking”. a little tap on the body will free it up and the engine runs as it should. I'm told that the real answer is the replace them with Bosch rebuilt injectors at $150. 00 a set. which be a permanent cure and not too expensive. There is an erratic rev counter. and  recalcetrant pop-up lights. unfortunately. typical Lotus problems. but should not take too much effort or cost to rectify and does not spoil the enjoyment of the car. I believe I am the third owner. it originated in California and this owner did major work in the early 90's to the body. suspension including Spax shocks. engine and a new transmission. apparently costing somewhere in excess of $15-17. 00. 00. It then came to a Colorado owner who did the fuel injection conversion in 1995. Car has done approximately 15. 00 miles on the rebuilt motor. this owner zeroed the miles on the clock. Since I have owned the car I have had the front seat covered in the correct color leather.

The car has a clean Colorado Title and is on Collector plates. The car has the usual minor blemishes consistent with a car of this age. it starts on the button and drives and performs really well. especially on the “Lotus Friendly” roads through the mountains of Colorado! The reason for the sale is that the car does not get enough exercise and should be enjoyed by someone who has the time and will appreciate an inexpensive classic sports car with working air conditioning and will fit 2 very small kids! Please inspect this car yourself or a rep. as you will find it as described. but please verify. A $500. 00 deposit is required within 48 Hours of Auction Close. Sold: "As is -Where is". I will assist with any shipping arrangements required.
