1971 Lotus Other

I am selling this car for a friend and I will be here to answer all of your questions. He has owned the car since 2005 and it has been stored in a climate controlled storage facility. The car has not been driven that often but has been started regularly. The car has new {as of 2009} engine compartment and dash wiring harnesses,and various other repairs as needed or desired between 2005 and 2009. Three weeks prior to this listed a new battery was installed and the car does run and drive. The issues with the car are: The drivers side door only opens from the inside. The lock mechanism is missing " as seen in the picture" The throttle cable, hile functional, s a bit taut and could be replaced. The relay controlling the headlights is inconsistent and should be repositioned all the other lights are in perfect working order. The steering column dip/flash was replaced but done with a lotus europa switch it doesnt fit properly within the elan switch housing. A small chunk of the fiberglass body had broken off of the right front wheelwell the owner glued it back on, nd it did not need further repair. When he bought the car the headliner was torn a bit behind the passenger seat and the headrest on the passenger side was torn as well nothing was done to correct those two issues Included with the sale will be a lotus elan workshop manual a lotus elan service parts list a soft cover lotus owners workshop manual and a restoration guide. Here is your chance to own a very rare lotus sprint one of 900 -1350 of thse cars built from 1971 to 1973 Good luck bidding! The actual original mileage of the car is 45,324!!!
