Oddly it has bolt-on wheels instead of spinners.

FROM THE INFO ON THE YOUTUBE VIDEO:

Apparently it hasn't been run for 26 years.
The interior & the boot are a mess, but the engine compartment seems very clean.

It will be interesting to know what it fetches.

The base Std Elan was sold with bolt on wheels. K/O's were an option. According to Andy Graham, my late 67 S3/SS was sold with bolt on wheels.

There are standard S4's kicking round with bolt on's.

Lotus must have bulk bought the wheels at a discount price as Europa's were fitted with them till 1970 or 71.
