Here is our beloved 1979 Lotus Eclat. She has been in our family for the last 30+ years. She has been well loved but also well used. Up until 10 years ago she was used daily as a regular commuting car hence the high mileage. Don't let this put you off though, the mileage is correct but she has had various rebuilds over the years.

She is showing her age a little, there are a few cracks and chips in her paint work and the drivers seat is very well worn. You would be too I suppose if someone had sat on you for all those miles.
She has always been garaged and looked after.

As will all cars of her age she has some quirks which you soon get used too, such as a random headlight popping up. It just gives more character.

Currently she doesn't have an MOT, it expired last year, but this is just because we haven't got round to getting it booked in. There is no reason why she won't pass again for her 40th year. From next year she will be MOT and Tax exempt.

She is drive-able and gets started regularly and taken round the block.

Last year she was converted to electronic ignition, new battery fitted and timing belt replaced.

We are sad to see her go but she just doesn't get driven as much as she should and cars shouldn't be kept in the garage under a dust sheet.

Would make a great introduction to classic motoring for the summer and with a little work she could be perfect.

We have a spare gearbox (requires overhaul), Parts manual, workshop manual and a few spares as well as a folder full of info and history.
