Ebay description

1967 Lotus Europa, this car was found in a storage locker, unpaid for 10 years ago, the storage lot took legal posesion and had lighting installed at a british garage, the car was left there for about 8 years and a mechanics lean was placed against it and it became the property of the garage, I purchased it from the garage in order to sell it. it is a 1.4 liter gordini cross flow engine witch was rebuilt when parked 18 years ago, cylinders are soaking in atf and the seals still apear to be in good shape with no leaks. I have the intake manifold, 2 barel webber carb and distributor as well as the starter and altinator. only thing missing is the exaust manifold. the brake master is dry and the throttle cable is broken. this is a complete project vehicle and is being sold as is. you will notice that there seams to be a murmaid on the rear trunk, molded into the fiberglass.

the car is in Vancouver Canada and must be shipped at the new buyers expence.

i have not seen this car running nor have i installed a battery to test out the electrical system, it does apear to be complete, but requires a full restoration.

further questions can be answered through ebay or by calling me at 604-616-9753

I sold my S1a, 46/0396 to someone in Canada for $2000 USD 4 years ago. As part of the deal I delivered it, a 6 hour drive each way from Massachusetts. Its was a driver that needed total restoration

Hi John
I'm not sure that Ed and I are that indifferent on our opinions, I say its too much to buy, Ed is saying more money down the road. At $6k to start and then some more to get running and driving you will be upside down very shortly, that is unless the S1 market takes off after 40 years.

exactly ---mine cost 5000 bucks to drag home and was in fair shape interior - chassis and body wise ----I had to rebuild the motor and replace all the wiring and brakes and paint --new wheels and tires and many unobtainable parts that good old Don Tingle found for me - the local parts guy put up the closed sign when he sees me coming ---- [ YOU WANT PARTS FOR A RENAULT 16OO??]--I put another 4500 into it plus 2 years work and it may be worth 6 or 7 if I sold it --but thats not why I did the restoration of course --HOWEVER this particular car appears to have been the result of some hot rodders dream that went awry-----it doesn't appear to be a sound candidate for a good car after all the work time and money it will require --the old silk purse deal ---or is it silk panties ????? W.T.H. real lotus drivers are confident enough in their manhood to wear both ---right ??/--ed
