1974 Lotus Elite Type 75 for sale SOLD

1974 Lotus Elite

First registered in November 1974 this 502 Elite has got to be one of the most original cars on the road.

The 2. 0l 907 engine was rebuilt by Geoff Page Racing in 2018 and has covered around 1000 miles since.

A body off restoration was carried out over a period of 6 years and commissioned by London James classic cars in 2018.

Chassis was stripped back and metal replaced before being powder coated. New brake line, fuel lines and front and rear suspension bushes were fitted.

The interior is original apart from new carpets being fitted and comes with the Philips radio cassette dictaphone. The front seats will need repadding as the foam has seen better days.

Painted in 2017 by Stock Coachworks as is 99 % perfect, there is a small crack on the bonnet. The aluminium trim is ok but pitted in places.

The boot carpet is missing.
