If you google NFG858W you will find Robins diary of the rebuild which is an eye opener to anyone thinking of buying one ! Robin is now restoring a Sunbeam Lotus for the club chairman . Engine delivers 225bhp . Bilstein suspension all round this is a quick car that handles well . MOT'd . taxed and being used on the road . Featured in Club Lotus magazine . lots of history and bills over the years . This is the third time I have owned this car . unfortunately it does not fit in with family life at the moment ! If the reserve price is not met . I will put the car into long term storage . these cars are appreciating at last . and this one is far more interesting than most ! May consider pre-war sporting car project as part payment ? On 24-Jul-13 at 21:20:41 BST. seller added the following information:
