1975 For sale Lotus Elite RHD 5 speed manual For Sale

Originally restored by Mike Taylor of Lotusbits. I have owned the car for almost 10 years and not used it much in that time, never used when it is wet. I have progressively tidied up a number of elements including rebuild suspension and brakes, new front discs and skimmed rear brake drums. The chassis is solid and the car drives well.

All the electrics work with the exception of the clock. The interior is in good condition with reupholstered leather and door cards.

The car is registered as tax and mot exempt.
