1974 Lotus Super Seven

This auction is for a very rare authentic California Lotus Super Seven. What a blast this car is to drive. It was fully restored and expertly modified over 35 years ago and it is just as quick today, s it was then. The rear arches were professionally widened 2 inches to give such a great look. The engine was built by renowned Lotus engine builder Dave Vegher and it is a testament to his work as it still performs extremely well. It has had only two owners over the last 35 years and comes with a complete folder of history, nvoices and articles. The original owner was a true enthusiast and took great car of the car always garaged and pampered. Recently it has had new rear brakes, lave cylinder, nd is fully serviced ready to drive.

Starting easily from cold it fires up with an awesome sound that just makes you smile, ostly because you know how much fun you are about to have! It settles down to a nice idle showing excellent oil pressure and it does not overheat. All the gauges, ights, orn work correctly. The indicators flash very quickly and probably need a new flasher unit but they do self cancel. The car stops very well with the twin boosters fitted and the parking brake will hold even on a steep incline. The car pulls left slightly and could probably use an alignment, ut the steering is quick and accurate as you would expect. The 4 speed ford box is a delight as always shifting smoothly up and down without issue. The bodywork is in very good condition showing a few blemishes typical of 35 year old paint. No significant cracking or crazing of the fibreglass is evident. The paint behind the gas filler has reacted from coming into contact with gas over the years, ut is not lifting or flaking off. The drivers’ side entry area has been touched up and still has some wear from getting in and out.

It also comes equipped with a very sharp looking full tonneau cover (one tennax snap missing) that matches the black interior which looks fantastic and compliments the car perfectly. There is also a half tonneau that covers the rear storage area. It sits on period Revolution Alloys and Hoosier rubber, 05/60’s in the back, nd 185/60’s on the front. This Lotus Super Seven turns heads with its vintage Lotus racing colors.

As far as the rest of the car the pictures speak for themselves, truly spectacular example of a well sorted work of automotive art.
