You are looking at the reluctant sale of my 1982 Lotus Eclat Series 2, I have had the car over 8 years but unfortunately its spent most of this time in dry storage due to other projects I'm just not going to get time spend on this lovely old car.

This is the very desirable Series 2 model which was only sold for two years so is probably one of the rarest as it got a factory fitted galvanized chassis and the bigger 2.2 engine with 5 speed transmission.

This is a 521 specification model so had some unique features like

2.2 (912 lotus twin carb engine)

5 speed manual transmission

Electric windows

Factory galvanized chassis

Twin pipe stainless steel exhaust

Original vented sprint alloy wheels

Some minor but important features like digital clock and cigar lighter only fitted to higher spec models

The interior is in very good original condition and is perfectly usable in half crème leather with brown carpets and wood trim steering wheel ,The headlining is all present but dropped slightly but easily sorted out and also some minor cracking on the dash but overall the interior is superb for its age

The engine and running gear are superb and it starts easily and sounds good although obviously due to the length in storage it could do with a good and tune-up, The clutch and gearbox are again lovely and still feel like the 42,000 miles the car has. The brakes work of a fashion but again going forward would need a refurb. The engine bay is excellent with no oil leaks and is very dry

The bodywork is overall very good although obviously its had protective primer sprayed over the top of the body many years ago so its going to need a full re-paint to get right but most of the body is on its original paint and trim (Please see pictures or arrange viewing if your unsure)

The Tripple X glass all around is very good with no delamination and is very clear (Rare for any lotus)

An attractively priced easy project Lotus with scope for cosmetic improvement that offers proper sports car credentials with super car looks and good history file at a very affordable price for one of these rare sports cars!!

Very hard to find these cars in this sort of easy project original condition.

I can have the lotus delivered to anywhere in the UK for very reasonable prices. Please feel free to contact me with your postcode for a quote. I can happily deliver the car to any airport or ferry port to help foreign buyers

Please only genuine bidders and no timewasters as I will pursue them for my listing fee and report to eBay.

If the vehicle cannot be collected within two days I must receive a £100 deposit via pay pal to secure, and it must be collected no later than 7 days after auction ends. Cash or bank transfer for the balance before the Lotus leaves my possession.

THE CAR IS NEAR HOLYWELL IN NORTH WALES. I CAN MEET AT MY LOCAL TRAIN STATION (FLINT) IF NEEDED
