For sale is our S2 Lotus Europa. It was purchased by my father about 6 years ago when it had undergone a major rebuild and was 90% finished. He worked on it for around 6 months and got it to the point it is now before he sadly passed away. It is 98% finished and is running and has passed its past 6 mot's no problem. It minor jobs that need doing to get it to a daily runner. mainly checking over everything that has been done and a few jobs on the instrument gauges and a good carb tune up. the cooling system might need a flush out and new antifreeze but is working fine. It has had pretty much everything recon'd or replaced / uprated.
I don't really know how everything has been done to it and have'nt got the mechanical knowledge to maintain it. since I have had it it has only done between 50-75 miles between mot's.
It has the Renault 16 engine fitted with a five speed gear box and twin weber carbs. The engine has got an aftermarket rocker cover which makes it look like the twin cam engine. not sure but think the previous owner had a Kent cam fitted during the engine re-build. There is a file of receipts which we got from previous owner when we bought it. including a wiring diagram. All lights work and tyres are good. The interior has had a full re-trim in beige leather with some nice upgrades like a glove box flap and wood trim on door cards and dash panels.
It really needs to go to someone who appreciates a classic car. as compared to modern vehicles is a completely different driving experience.
Cash on collection and viewing welcomed.
No warranty is given and car is sold as seen.
