PostPost by: BRGS » Sat Apr 15, 2023 5:50 pm

In Cirrus white, running very well, starts and sounds very good.

I bought this car from UK Sportcars, since then I have had a lot done at Paul Matty and Chris Foulds.

That includes
New wing mirrors
New steering rack
Boot refit
New silencer bracket and end pipe
New clutch slave cylinder
Reconditioned brake servo
New GRP tunnel and vinyl
Mileage is 86361, Always garaged in my ownership in heated dry garage. MOTs in hand back to 1979.

Always with current MOT. Zero road tax rate.
The car is running very well and is reliable and mechanically in very good shape, the stainless exhaust note is just right. Some cosmetic issues, commensurate with a 50 year old car but it’s always nice to have something to do. I think if you have run a classic Lotus you will understand. I can go over this with anyone who is interested. Big file of receipts and work going all the way back.
5th gear is a 0.8 ratio overdrive, so the car can be driven on the motorway and keeps up with the traffic. This is the Ford Lotus twin cam “big valve” offering 128 bhp, out of the factory in 1973 that is.

Car comes with
2 original sets of keys
Original owner’s manual
Lotus letter and certificate of provenance
Original Metallifacture jack
New smaller scissor jack which I keep in the car.
Hammer and hex tool for spinners
Lotus logo mats
Lotus CoA and archive letter

Price £19,999. Located near Halifax, West Yorks. Call me 07968 756315.
