Im looking for interest in my 1973 Lotus. It is mechanically good and is registered. It deserves to be painted but is a long way down my priority list.

Sorry about the delay - life has priorities!


Currently a cherry red but the roof has been painted black by a previous owner and is blistering. It really does need a repaint.


The interior is complete and in fairly good shape. It has a couple of incorrect instruments (an ammeter instead of the clock and a cortina tacho- although i have the correct tacho).


The prev owner has done a lot of mechanical work including new weber carbs, electronic ignition and the car runs very nicely. It does have datsun 1600 rear driveshafts (replacing the horrible lotus rubber donuts) and would benefit from a CV joint setup.


It is SI registered and does get its weekly drive.

I'm looking for $19000

Am I missing this info? I'm assuming the car is in a right-hand-drive country, but which one???

Thanks,
