1964 Lotus Super Seven1964 Lotus 7 (series 2) NOT A REPLICA! This Lotus 7 serial number SB 1428 has been restored to a very high level. If you are in the market for a great Lotus or just want to experience the thrilling driving experience that only a true Lotus 7 can give you must consider this Lotus 7. As you may know the series 2 cars were the best of them all as they had the stronger frames, bigger engines and desirable suspension modifications that make them best of all. It is extremely hard to find an original Lotus 7 that has not been raced or modified so this Lotus maybe the best available anywhere. This Lotus 7 was restored to a high level in France in 2005 and enjoyed a long period of ownership in Paris until past owner was transferred to the USA in 2013. I have all documents and pictures of the restoration in a nice photo album.
MECHANICS: All mechanicals were restored in 2005 and are in excellent working order today. The engine was rebuilt and it is a 1600 cc Ford Crossflow matched up to a 4-speed transmission. The engine has larger valves and a hotter road cam that produced approx. 135 Horsepower. Being this Lotus 7 weighs less then 1,000 pounds and this horsepower it will outperform most vintage sports cars. Car starts right up and idles nicely. There is no hesitation upon acceleration and no smoke. Transmission shifts into all gears with ease and precision. This Lotus mechanically is ready to be driven and enjoyed, I would not hesitate to drive it ANYWHERE!
INTERIOR: Allgaugesand instruments work with accuracy. Horn, turn signals, lights work as they should. Seats have been upgraded to leather bucket seats (for better support and comfort). There are floor mats that are removable. Seat belts are harness (race style) for safety.
EXTERIOR: All panels appear to be original and are in excellent condition. Fenders are painted black and are very glossy, however there are some chips and flaws, as common in a Lotus 7. Tires are also in excellent condition. Wheels including spare are true knock-off wheels and are in great condition. Windshield is like new. All lights and turn signals work as they should.
As you may know a Lotus 7 is one of the best driving experience a driver can experience! They combine great power with the best handling of any sports car ever- Being this is a real Lotus 7 it is easy to register in any state. I encourage inspections here at my home but must be done prior to end of auction with no exceptions. I have sold other cars including two other Lotuses from my collection and have great feedback here on Ebay! I do have it listed elsewhere and auction may end at any time. Thank you for considering this Lotus 7
